★★★★✩

This is such a sweet, short story. It takes place hunderds of years before Shadow and Bone and the Darkling is still a boy and not called the Darkling yet. The Darkling is a kid, I think 11 years old, and he is still learning about his power and what dangers it can attract.  The story shows a bit of the Darkling’s life before he became the Darkling, but isn’t really tied to events in the Grisha Trilogy. It is a so-called ‘can read’, but it is totally worth it to read.

Short stories are hard to rate. My feeling just said four stars, so I went with it. It is a good read and, I believe, longer than the Genya short…
