These stories feel more real and gritty. the first two stories do take place within the timeline of the original trilogy and if you have read the third book of that trilogy would be spoiled to a certain degree of knowing at least where the story will end up. At the same time they are emotionally impactful in a way that the original series could not quite reach. I believe one reason why these novellas work so well is because they do not rely upon a lot of World building and would not necessarily need that which is found in the original trilogy to carry them.
It also could be because we do not spend a lot of time Meandering in the stories. They are quick and to-the-point. The characters are rich and have a unique voice in and of themselves. Alexandra Bracken has been able to produce some very relatable characters.
The last story though... it ended on a note of hope, of change, rebuilding. That the lives ruined or list were not in vain. Sacrifices were worth it.
Reading these makes me want to go back and read the series again, with these stories included we here they fall on the timeline.
This continues to be one of my favorite series.

It consists of three novellas which compliment the actual books, and each of them is beautiful and a must-read. Alexandra Bracken captures every moment in such a unique way, and every one of these stories will move you with their strong emotion.
In conclusion, one of the best books I've read.
