The tragic story of how Samuel and Arianna first met.

Thoughts

This is an amazingly sad and sweet tale set in the Mercy-verse. I would recommend reading this after reading Silver Borne, although chronologically, it occurs before. But the true impact and power of Samuel and Arianna’s story is so much more potent after the events in the fifth Mercedes Thompson book. Or at least, it was for me – so powerful in fact that I wept throughout the entire short story.

Not only is this story about Samuel and Arianna, but it is also a sort of origins story for Bran and his eldest son too. Finding out more about their background and Bran’s unique type of power was an amazing adventure and helped to fill in some of the minor details that surround such enigmatic characters.

I loved this sad and bittersweet love story, not only did it help to fill in some gaps about the Mercy-verse as a whole, but it was also an amazing tale that left a feeling of hopelessness.
