3.0 out of 5 stars Its OK but not up to scratch, 9 Dec. 2013
By 
This review is from: Kris Longknife: Training Daze: A Companion Novella to the Kris Longknife Series: (A Penguin eSpecial from ACE) (Kindle Edition)
Not as good as the full length books, I felt I'd been cheated when it stopped. Mike has now issued 3 of these novellas as fillers between book releases. I won't be buying another of them, but it has not put me off the full length books.

It felt like a short story, but it isn't. The Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America specifies word lengths for each category of its Nebula award categories:[[...]
Classification Word count
Novel over 40,000 words
Novella 17,500 to 39,999 words
Novelette 7,500 to 17,499 words
Short story under 7,500 words

My estimate for the book is 18000 words, based on counting the words on 4 pages and multiplying up, so it does qualify as a novella.
