This collection of short stories covers events from before the Red Queen series's opening, during and the aftermath, enlightening readers to the events of this world which the series could not cover. Interlaced between each short story the notes of one main character, Julian, give us insight into the world at large and it's intricate history. This wonderful exploration into the backstory and depths of this world is somthing any fan will want to read and re-read.
