The four short stories (77-97 pages each) in this book are set in the same world as Jean Johnson's Sons of Destiny series but are all new characters.
The stories are linked with a character from one becoming the main character in the next.
As the references to the happenings in the series are very small these stories can be read without having first gone through the series.
But I would recommend as they were excellent.
Each story is set in a different country and so in each the customs and behavior is different.

A heroine with a gap of several days in her memory and a hero who needs to know what she has forgotten. A story where crumbs of knowledge from various characters build like a jigsaw puzzle all through the book keeping the mystery going to the end. The hero who is overbaring, arrogant and sure of himself at the start of the book is by the end shown to care deeply and selflessly by the end. A joy to read
I have read other Caolyn Jewel books including her previous book 'Lord Ruin' and will await the next with anticipation
