I loved this novella!! Reading this after Captivate Me will really help you understand and appreciate the story & characters more as well as help you become more invested. I love how it portrays the love between the sisters and how they will do anything for each other. It is a wonderful addition to this must read series!

Iris, Novella: The Captivated Series By S.J. Pierce 4 out of 5 stars Very original, a prologue in novella form to the first book in the series, “Captivate Me”, from the villain’s point of view.  A completely new reading experience for me that helped flesh out the characters from the book in a different light.  It is a really great idea in my opinion and a twist that kept me intrigued and reading as it came after the first book.    As with my last review I will give you a little taste of some of this authors best work…her prologue’s are very powerful and set just the right tone for what follows, a talent that many authors aspire to but few achieve, grabbing your attention in that first paragraph or two.  Well here goes:                   “Witches – the word can have a negative connotation.  In some, the word evokes visions of darkness and satanic rituals.  It’s also used as a derogative term against women, and believe me, to call me one in that way is the surest way to die, or at the very least, a spell cast on you that will make you wish you were.  I prefer to be called a conjurer.                   Of our kind, there are two types – conjurers of the light, and conjurers of the dark.  Conjurers of the light pull their powers from the Earth and are believed to be blessed by God himself.  They are one with nature, can heal and always use their powers for good.  They devote their lives to living out their purpose of goodwill and helping those less fortunate.                   My two sisters and I, we’re not those kind of witches.”   My reasoning for not giving it the 5 stars the book received is that it was more an explanation of what had gone on before from the villain’s viewpoint than any real new information that you couldn’t logically deduce. While I found the concept of the prologue in novella form following the book highly original, the content was somewhat predictable because I had read the book and I knew where the story was going.  It is a well written novella, it just lacks some of the excitement and discovery of the book.  Just one new tidbit of information, one ah-ha! moment, you couldn’t piece together without reading the book would have gotten that extra star.  Don’t get me wrong, I thoroughly enjoyed it and it certainly gave more depth to the characters.  I recommend reading it with the book. Another winner from S.J. Pierce. *A complimentary copy was given in exchange for an honest review.* Cheryle, My Secret Book Spot

In this novella, it tells Iris' story before Captivate Me. Of course, Captivate Me must be read before reading this novella. We learn that Iris wasn't always the person she was in the first book. This novella gives more details and history about her and her sisters. It also tells of the history or timeline of how it led to the events in Captivate Me. It is always interesting to find out what drives a character to do what they do and why. I definitely don't want to say too much without revealing too much of Captivate Me. But, I do have to say that this novella will give you a better understanding of what drove Iris to do what she did and does.

Iris is a novella which gives you an insight into the decisions Iris made which lead her to the point in time that Gabe enters her life. The rest you will know from reading Captivate Me. I would say that although this could be read as a standalone, it is far better to be read in addition to Book 1. By itself it is interesting. Following on from Book 1 means that it sheds light onto the whole perception of a character. This novella is a brilliant addition to the series and definitely adds to the story. Definitely recommended for all fans of the Captivated series.
