Assassin Study description:
Yelena is on her way to her ancestral homeland of Sitia to be reunited with her family and to learn more about her magical powers. An order of execution hangs over her head should she ever return to Ixia. But her true love, Valek, quickly learns that an assassin has taken it upon himself to make sure Yelena doesn’t reach her destination.As Ixia’s chief of security, and a highly skilled assassin himself, can Valek track down the killer in time to save Yelena’s life
I really don’t understand the point of this short story… what there was of it was cool with Valek protecting Yelena when she didn’t even know he was around… but in it he had promised to help a woman out who had helped him through Sitia and he thought it would be a big challenge and he was looking forward to it but the story ended without him doing anything about it… It left me frustrated because I wanted to know what happened…
Power Study description:
Ari and Janco deal with a Sandseed Story Weaver and a cocky young soldier while Valek is off helping Yelena.
This was an interesting story for just Ari and Janco… it lets you get to know them a little more and some of the cool things about Janco… it’s an exciting quick story with some filled with sword fights and humor…
Ice Study description:
This is a short story about Yelena and Valek as they race to keep the powerful Ice Moon from a rogue magician.
For such a short story a lot happen… same old awesome Valek… same old bad ass Yelena… event he Commander makes an appearance which I liked cause he’s definitely an intriguing character that makes any scene better… it’s a good story that’s a fun quick read and if you’ve already read the other 3 books you’d like this…
