This short story didn't tell a whole lot about what happened to Raven.There are still too many questions I would like answered.

After reading the first one, and really enjoyed it, I stumbled upon this novella. I had high hopes for it, assuming that it would share some insight into Raven’s experience at the house of the stone. While we did get a few short chapters on what went on in the house, I found that most of the book mirrored events that already happened in the first book. Despite the fact that they were raven’s POV, I don’t feel as though I learned anything new or had any of my questions answered. This book ends right after the mourning of Dahlia with Raven getting into her mistresses car. I was left feeling confused because I felt this novella was essentially pointless. I understand that she was tortured, I assumed as much from reading the first book. While I didn’t particulate enjoy reading the excerpt that showcases her getting tortured I would have liked to see more of what happened closer to when she starts showing signs of wearing down. *SPOILER* When Raven and Violet see each other at the last dinner part, Raven is described as fading in between being in the moment and drifting off somewhere else. She is also pregnant. I also wanted to see the parts where Violet and Raven share there little trinkets between the wall and how Raven found the violets. Maybe that is explained more in the second book, I have not read that one yet. Overall, this gives us an example of mistresses who aren’t as generous as Violet’s but this novella certainly isn’t necessary to read.

I actually started The White Rose before this one and was at the part where they are searching the morgue for Raven when I discovered the existence of this novella. I was going to keep reading, but my thoughts kept coming back to The House of the Stone, so I bought it. The 71 page novella goes through Ravens first week or so with the Countess. It explains so much, yet ends before Raven finds Violets first violet. I would have loved to see Raven's reaction and the glimmer of hope it gave her to help endure the Countess. I love Raven's spunk, although it got her into more trouble (which is what the Countess wanted). Even in the short length of a novella, the characters are rich and powerfully woven. I loved Raven's mantra (which carried over into The White Rose).

The house made of the stone was a complete list down. I cannot get pass the first page. 12 page of BORING!!! Don't get this book is you don't like BORING! Read something a bit more FUN!!!!!! I thought about it but I can't get my head to read this BOOK. I like books that would make me want to trash more, all I want to do is close the book and never read it again. This is not my type of book!!!! I'm sorry!!!!!
