When I started reading The Shadow Soul, the first book in the A Dance of Dragons series, I was surprised to find that the main character from the prequel story didn’t appear until way in the story. This second short story in the series, focusses back on Leena, when she meets Jinji and also afterwards, lighting the other side of the war.
While very short it was a fast and entertaining read. I like Leena as a character more than Jinji and Rhen, so it’s a shame we only get to see so little of her. I suppose, but as of writing this review I’m not sure yet, that the events in this story are foreshadowing what is going to happen in the second book of the series, The Spirit Soul, which I have just started reading.
If you’re reading this series, I would recommend not skipping the short stories.
Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!
