    Not worth the time

    Forty seven pages of character explanation and skimpy action plus eleven pages of excerpt for the upcoming novel. Add twelve pages of nothing but book lists. Not really worth the time or nominal purchase cost. Much as I personally enjoy the author's books, this was a very big disappointment as there was neither much action nor true character development in the short story.

    I expected much better from the author. I would not recommend someone read the 'story' and then decide whether they would like the other books in the series as they would not get a true feel for the writer's work, nor for the characters.

    more from this reviewer

    This story takes place shortly after Spider's Revenge, as Gin is

    This story takes place shortly after Spider's Revenge, as Gin is recovering from her last big battle with her arch nemesis. While she's still not 100%, she knows that she has to make an appearance at Mab's funeral both for her own peace of mind and to show the rest of the city that she's still standing.

    Mab being Mab and Gin being Gin, it should come as no surprise that the funeral doesn't run smoothly. With Mab gone, there is a power vacuum in Ashland. It's one thing to size up the competition, but who would have the sheer audacity to stage an attack during the ceremony?

    This was a quick read, but didn't have an awful lot of substance. A nice story to keep us satisfied until the next book comes out. All of the main characters make an appearance, including my favorites, the Deveraux sisters! It does serve to give Gin a taste of what she can expect now that Mab is gone. And I'm curious about some of the characters introduced during the service, and wondering if they'll play a role in future stories?
