“I thought it was a great idea that Ms. Pearson had written this novella making it easier for her readers to understand this world just a little bit more.  Though just a novella, Morrighan was an epic read.”
~ Under the Covers

Morrighan tells the story of a girl who goes through life full of hardships, fear, pain, and love.  Along with Venda and Gaudrel, Morrighan’s story will ultimately become a big part of history and carve the path for her descendants.  Her story will be passed down to generations to come.

I picked this up after reading The Kiss of Deception wanting a little more clarification on Morrighan’s story.  This novella included Gaudrel, Morrighan and Venda’s background, specifically Morrighan’s life.  All three will be mention in The Remnant Chronicles as quotes written in historical texts.  I suspect Ms. Pearson will write novellas for Gaudrel and Venda.  At least, it’s wishful thinking on my part.  I thought it was a great idea that Ms. Pearson had written this novella making it easier for her readers to understand this world just a little bit more.  Though just a novella, Morrighan was an epic read.

I do recommend reading this prequel AFTER reading the first book, A Kiss of Deception.  Only because this solidifies the history that supports a big part of the overall world building but it doesn’t really show the main storyline of the series.  There was information that  was given in spurts in A Kiss of Deception and this short story fills in all the holes.  I loved getting to know the full story of where it all started.  The sayings and quotes mentioned in book one make more sense now.

I am young at heart and a die hard romantic living in California.I am happily married to a man who understands my love for reading, blogging and my book boyfriends. I have two beautiful girls who are also avid readers but forbidden to any of my books.I like running, CrossFit and eat healthy but not necessarily good at it.My motto is “I have the right to choose my calories” and often, my choice of poison is a bag of Flammin’ Hot Cheetos.

I coblog and review here at Under the Covers and occasionally review for Hot Listens.I love to read PNR, UF, Contemporary, New Adult, and Romantic Suspense. Occasionally, I will venture to Erotica, BDSM reads and rarely Historical Romance. There are some sub-genres that I don’t always enjoy, but I’m open to stepping out of my comfort zone.For the most part, as long as there’s a hint of romance, I’m pretty much in.
