I love that the author decided to revisit the world of The Inheritance Trilogy. I love that world. These stories were a nice peek behind the scenes, as it were, filling in the back stories and events that happened off screen. Thank you for taking us back to that world one last time.
The first story features an enslaved Nahadoth and takes place before The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. It explores his nature and was quite interesting. The ending had a twist that I didn't expect (surprising since it's a prequel), and answers some unexplained questions from the trilogy.
The second one focuses on Ahad/Hado and takes place across and beyond the trilogy. It was well-written, but not as interesting as the Nahadoth story.
The final story is about Glee & Itempas and takes place in between The Broken Kingdoms and The Kingdom of Gods. This was excellent; I loved the way Jemisin explored their motivations and how differently they see the world. It's definitely the gem of the collection.
