I couldn't wait, I needed to read these stories as soon as possible!
I loved The End of All Things. Carly and Justin are permanent dwellers in my heart, as is Shadowfax. I am also super excited to know Lissa is writing the sequel, The Land of the Shadow, definitely a must read.
Now, Tales from the End, 4 amazing, yes amazing little stories that introduce new characters and bring back familiar ones.
Heart breaking and heart warming, strength and perseverance, despair and hope, courage and survival.
So many emotions, that I had tears, thumping of the heart, the oh my goodness trepidation, huge face cracking smiles, and lastly, sighing because these short little stories were well worth the wait!
Here's a quick little breakdown -
The Horsemen - The story of Pearl who's life changes instantly when the city goes under quarantine. Her courage in the face of despair was heart breaking and heart warming. The last words she hears from her mother, "you must try" just gripped my heart as she set out on the journey of survival. (really hope the author includes Pearl in the sequel!)
Veronica - OK, this one just about killed me with the heart break. Veronica is 9 yrs old, family gone, and only two kind strangers to depend and survive on...need I say more?
I Wandered Lonely As A Cloud - This is Shadowfaxes prequel to meeting Carly and Justin. Loved it! Told in Shadowfaxes POV too. Definite feelings of trepidation and huge face cracking grins!
Birthday - This one brings back Carly and Justin. Love, sweetness, happiness in the midst or surviving. Lovely uplifting story. Love these two and want more more more.
Tales from the End is a must read for anyone who loved The End of All Things.
