I am not one for reading novellas or short stories. I've never liked them. Since they used to make us read anthologies of them in school. But if Sophie Jordan is writing it, I'm reading it. I have to admit I'm a little bit of a fangirl and I am not ashamed at all.
Paget was such a great heroine. She was very easy to relate to and, even though this is a novella, I really felt as if I really got to know Paget. I also disliked Jamie almost as much as Paget for much of the book. I loved Jamie too. Even though I wanted to throttle him for how he treated Paget in the past. But, then again, I empathized with him because the reasons for his treatment of Paget are so heartwrenching.
I loved this book. A part of me wished it was longer but then the realistic part of me realized that any book about these two would be almost too long and too drawn out with the angst. This novella was the perfect length. Long enough to tell the story and get to know the characters but short enough to be satisfying. I was also pleased at how three dimensional Jamie and Paget were. I really felt as if I got to know them. I am really looking forward to Owen's book and I hope that Paget and Jamie feature in his story.
