I love this series and i think that since we were already so invested in Marlee throughout America’s journey, and then once again when we got into the spin off series with Eadlyn. I feel like Marlee had so much more to offer, that a novella is great, but i feel like maybe we were cheated a bit since this was just a bit of a brush off when we got into the whole situation.
I love that we got to see how Marlee and Carter got together, since we knew only that it happened, but not that there was a fall that he took care of her for, that he was romantic and brought her flowers and that there was so much conflict internally for both of them as to what to do. There was a bit of confusion though with how our great author depicted things since there was a flash back bit and then a fast forward, and i’m just confused.
So all that being said, we definitely get a sweet bit of the story – i loved that we got to see the changes that Maxon and America started to put into place once they became the king/queen roles, and i think it’s a good lead in to the spin off series. I wish we had more, but it was enjoyable none the less. Happy Thursday all!
