This story comes between The Cruel Prince and The Wicked King. It is a great refresher of The Cruel Prince because it gives an overview of what happened in that book from a new perspective. This story is told by Taryn speaking directly to Jude. It is written in the uncommon second person, because it addresses “you.” I read this story after reading The Wicked King, instead of between the two novels. However, I think I enjoyed it more reading it this way, because Taryn plays a unique role in The Wicked King. This story gave me a different perspective of her character because she was able to tell her side of the story. I enjoyed this short story. It is great for fans of this series!

This short story is an apology letter from Taryn to Jude. It truly starts off with excuses and then turns into her explaining the events of 'The Cruel Prince' from her perspective. Halfway through the story, you can see that it's less an apology and more an insight into her actual character underneath all her smiles. It showed glimpses into how selfish and twisted her true nature evolved into with every twist from Locke or bad situation in Elfhame. Basically, she's the worst character and I wouldn't put it past her to do anything to keep Locke or her place in fairy society. However if you were having withdrawals between 'The Cruel Prince' and 'The Wicked King', it was a nice little slice of Elfhame and brought light to missing pieces of the story I didn't know I needed to read.

Oof I like Taryn now? Or understand her? Locke is still on probation but he has parent issues so maybe not???? Aaaah
