Paige Mahoney and Arcturus Mesarthim have arrived in the Scion Citadel of Paris. Exhausted by her efforts against Scion, Paige has no choice but to remain in hiding, away from the revolution she started, so she can heal and come to terms with her mental and physical scars.

There are only a very small handful of series that I will pick up the novellas for.  Normally, I am not one for picking up the books in between the full length novels but this series is one of the exceptions.  Any chance to have a brief glimpse into this world again, I will take. 

We see Paige and Arcturus in this novella where Paige is healing from what has happened in The Song is Rising.  Now this is a relationship between two characters that I have wanted to follow and learn more from.  We watch as Paige heals and Arcturus helps her.    

For fans of this series, this novella is definitely a must pick up.  For those who have not yet read this series, it is best to read the first three books in the series before picking up this novella.  

I can't now wait until the next book in the series comes out now in 2021!
