*This novella takes place during Bluewing, #4 in The Frost Chronicles series*
Adam Brewer has a past, and he doesn't like to speak about it. Few know his journey from refugee to Thorns agent. Even fewer know the extent of his feelings for a certain fierce young woman. Stuck in a prison cell, he must stay sane...and hold on to hope that he'll see her again.
Author's Note: This novella reveals a bit of Adam’s complicated past and contains spoilers through book #4 (Bluewing) of The Frost Chronicles. I suggest reading it after you’ve read at least Frost, Thorns, Weavers, and Bluewing!
(If you have read the entire series, including Aeralis, you can still enjoy this story just fine.)
This tells the story of Adam Brewer.
The first part talked about Adam’s origins and his family and was extremely well done and compelling. We learned where he came from, his time in Aeralis, what had happened to his father, how they became involved with the Thorns, how they met the Weavers, and more. I enjoyed it immensely. And it probably should have ended there…
Once they were in the village there was a little bit of new material about his feelings for Lia and how he was bullied and treated as an outsider. But the rest of the story as told from his perspective was really redundant from the books with large swaths of dialogue lifted directly from the books.. It really felt like I was rereading books 1-4 rather than gaining new insights into Adam.
I really think if it had just ended when he met Lia or maybe even when they first came across the village it would have been so much more powerful. So for me it was a mixed bag… Some really great new material and some old rehashed material.
