The first of the short stories is, Torn Apart, which is told in Cal's POV, which I love! It is the scene when he is separated from Ariana in the first book. Reading this made me want to go back and read the first book, True Calling, all over again! Hopefully I can fit a re-read in soon! It is very short, but it shows how committed Cal is to Ariana!
Next up is, Endings and Beginnings, which is about Cal's dad and Ariana's parents, and why there is bad blood between the families. This was about the problems that occurred between the parents when they were younger. Cal's dad has never been one of my favorite people, but this story did make me feel bad for him. This story did help me understand a bit more where all the parents were coming from.
Third is, Perfect Moment, This one takes place 2 years after the last book in the series, and I loved that there are some Cal and Ariana moments! We also get to see more of Zane, and him moving on with his life. I wasn't in love with how Zane's story ends up; I've never really enjoyed knowing what happens with the other love interests in love triangles, but I still can appreciate this short story. It was good to get to read more about the characters of the True Calling series!
Lastly is, Under the Mistletoe, which take place 4 years after the last book's epilogue, and shows the True Calling characters getting together for the holidays. Love my Cal and Ariana moments! We also get some scenes with all the kids, Zane, all the parents, Mel, Lily, and Deacon. I love that there are going to be books about Lily and Deacon! This story has definitely added to my desire to read their books! Hopefully Deacon grows up! This was a cute addition to the series!
In Torn Apart, we get to see Cal's POV of what happened at the end of True Calling. I am a Team Zane person and so it was interesting and enlightening to get that bit from Cal's head. It didn't change my Team mind you, lol, but it was nice to see that side of him and get some insight into how the rest of the story goes.
My favorite part of the collection was Endings and Beginnings. We get to see what happened prior to the events of True Calling and we get insight into one of the least known and explored characters and situations of them all...Anneka Skyee's! We get to see what happened to cause the animosity and heartbreak within that set of characters.
The other two stories contained in this collection happen after the events of the series. I love this type of story too. Normally, as readers, we only get to imagine what happens to our beloved characters after the books have ended. With these little "epilogue" stories, we actually get to see if our imaginings are correct or at least headed in the right direction. We get to see "happily ever after" play out, or see if one of the characters who wasn't so happy will be eventually.
If you are a fan of the True Calling series, you will definitely want to read this Collection. I suggest waiting until after reading the series though, to get the full effect of the stories and avoid any spoilers. If you haven't read True Calling, I do recommend reading that series and the Saven series, as Siobhan Davis' work is very entrancing and it will pull you in to some amazing worlds.
*I received a copy of this book in exchange for an HONEST review.*
This book reminded me how much I loved and enjoyed the True Calling series.
Torn Apart- This book was from Cal's POV which narrated the incident about how he was seperated from Ari at the end of the first book, i.e. True Calling. I definitely enjoyed reading from his perspective. I was not a big fan of Cal in book 1 but he slowly made his way to my heart by the end of the third book, so I could understand what he was feeling.
Endings and Beginnings- This story was narrated by Ari's mom which tells us what went down between her, Nate (Cal's dad) and Malcom (Ari's dad). This was different but I definitely liked it but it was so heartbreaking to see what happened between them.
Perfect Moment- This was probably my favourite. I had already read this when I finished Destiny Rising but I loved reading it again! I absolutely love Zane and I was so glad to see him finally move on and find love again. Also Ari's official wedding was fun to read about.
Under the Mistletoe- This story takes place after 2 years after the incidents of Destiny Rising. I loved seeing all the characters grown up and settled in their lives but what intrigued me was Lily and Deacon, Ari's younger siblings, they were definitely not themselves and I'm soo glad we are getting a spin-off series about them! Can't wait to read it!
Overall, The Short Story Collection was pretty awesome! It was a quick read and I enjoyed every moment of it. It felt great to be back in this world and it's also one of the books that executed the love triangle perfectly! I hate... wait I loath them but this series was definitely an exception. The writing was smooth and perfect and I can't wait to read more by this author.
