Ok let me be honest, the first time I read this I still kind of liked the Darkling, so this story was amazing IMO. Now, five years later, I actually do not like the Darkling anymore at all (I think he's an amazing character, I just really hate him *shrug*) so I couldn't justify giving this novella 4 stars. I've brought my rating down to 3,5. Yeah, it's still a nice story and nice backstory for the Darkling but meh.

I miss the Grishaverse so much now. I can't wait to get back to it by reading the six of crow series!

This story is my favorite novella so far and I loved seeing some of the other powers and how they work. (I found them a little confusing at times when I was reading the books.)

This was the first time I'd read any sort of Grisha story that was able to keep my attention for more than a few moments. I would definitely recommend this story to anyone who hasn't read it, especially if you've read the Grisha Trilogy. (I actually read this novella first).
