For a novella, this book really pack a punch. It is book 1.5 in the series and I cannot wait for the next book. This book gives us the pre-story of Amethyst and what led her to flee to Edenton. In this novella we meet Amethyst and her crazy ex Carl.
Amethyst is quite the character. I really enjoyed her personality and have an inkling she may be a new favorite for me. She is a Nymph and it's not something she likes to admit. She doesn't like her powers and doesn't want to use them to rid herself of Carl, even when it seems as there are no other options. I love a characters that sticks to her beliefs and she is one of them.
Carl throws some very scary and very large curve balls at her when all she is trying to do it an a relationship that is meaningless. To her that is. To Carl, she is ending everything that matters to him.
This is a nice story that sets you up for the 3rd book in the series. Shadows of the Past. It really gives you enough to get you really hooked on these new characters. I can't wait to see where brandy takes us on this next ride.
