“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.
