If it weren't for the fab ladies on You Tube, I wouldn't have listened to this audio to hear what the hoopla re this series was about. I am glad I did. The prequel is haunting. It is just enough to get you hooked. I like to believe that I am open to other genres but often will bypass what's completely out of my comfort zone. Paranormal/Fantasy is new for me. I will pick up the bind up that has this novella in it with two others in the series. Pleasantly surprised. Amanda Ronconi did a great job.
