I've had Winterspell on my TBR for a while and when I realized there was a prequel novella, I knew I had to read it first. . . And I wish I hadn't. The characters were blah and I found that I didn't care about the story or what was happening. This may be a me-thing because I have trouble getting into novellas. There's not enough story for me or character development for me to care what happens to these characters. Maybe if I had read Winterspell first I would have enjoyed Summerfall, but that's not the case. I religiously read the first few chapters, but ended up skimming the second half. Why didn't I just give up and DNF it? Because I still want to read Winterspell and maybe something I read during Summerfall will have a bit of significance. Also, I'm not in the habit of judging a book / author / series by one short 130 page novella. So I'm going to give myself a few days between Summerfall and Winterspell and dive back into Claire's storytelling.
