i have mixed feelings about this novella. while the surprise ending answered the questions i had at the end of delerium, i thought the book as a whole was pretty lackluster. to me, this hana seemed to be a completely different character from the hana in delerium. i understand that the point of this novella was to show us the "inner hana" but she seemed to contrast the hana from delerium too starkly.
however, the ending did explain a lot, and the book did give more depth to the story of delerium.
overall, i didn't like this side of hana, but the story was interesting and i still look forward to reading more about her in requiem.
