3.5 hearts out of 5
Now that I’ve read Neiderwald a second time in it’s correct order in the series, the short story makes a thousand times more sense. So what lesson have we learned today, folks? Don’t read stories or books out of order ~ you won’t fully understand the entire “spirit” of the story and it’ll probably lessen your overall enjoyment of the story.
Overall, this short entry into the Soul Screamers world serves two purposes. First, it gave us the opportunity for us to hear Sabine’s voice first hand. But there were no surprise revelations, no differences in between what she says and what she thinks. Meaning, it’s not like we suddenly discovered she hides a deep seeded insecurity behind all the trash talk.
Second, Ms. Vincent got her short story into this anthology with a lot of other popular young adult authors who were taking the book out on tour. Even though If I Die was being released one week later. Oops, that was a close one, I would say!
Because there is a spoiler for If I Diein this short story, beware if you haven’t read If I Die yet. Just cover your eyes when you go to buy the book.
