4.5 stars, actually. It's pretty difficult for me to award more than 4 starts to a Novella that basically acts as an interim story between two actual books in the series. A Novella that doesn't resolve anything, a novella that basically just stops at the end.....and yet I'm giving this one 4.5? I've pretty much only given interim short stories/novellas by like Ilona Andrews and Patricia Briggs that high a score before. I don't know, maybe I'm in a good mood? Maybe it's because this Novella picks up 4.5 stars, actually.

I've pretty much only given interim short stories/novellas by like Ilona Andrews and Patricia Briggs that high a score before. I don't know, maybe I'm in a good mood? Maybe it's because this Novella picks up at the end of the first Outlier Prophecy Novel where main character Actuary Kate and her main foil, policeman Ian Becker have solved a case that simultaneously uncovered a deeper darker possibility and also entered into an untraditional relationship. I don't really recommend reading this Novella as an intro to the series, there's too much backstory making Becker and Kate's relationship issues delicious. But I totally suggest reading it if you've at least read the first in the series. While the first book is mostly Kate's POV, this is mostly Becker's POV and there's alot of longing from afar, and dealing with the issues of Becker's attachments to Kate getting all mixed up with his werewolf Pack longings, etc. There's a lot of sleeping together...but mostly when Kate is actually sleeping or sleepy. Fear not, shippers, this Novella doesn't introduce anything too drastic before you get to book two. And while the criminal investigation isn't that titillating, the question of how Becker will control himself, if Kate's cousin witchy Ali or Becker's partner Hank will upset their carefully balanced tightrope act, etc. etc. So shippers will love this, people more focused on plot maybe not so much. And as I mentioned, it stops abruptly, but I've already got the second book so I'm ready to plunge on ahead.

This novella might help readers understand Becker a bit better, but I didn't think it gave me any more insight than my reading of the main series novels did. Storywise, you get a better handle on his actions (some of which weren't clarified in the main books). I like both Kate and Becker, but think they'd both be better served if they'd just have a little more self-worth and courage and tell each other how they feel. A lot of their problems are self-made and this mealy-mouthedness makes me irrita This novella might help readers understand Becker a bit better, but I didn't think it gave me any more insight than my reading of the main series novels did.

A lot of their problems are self-made and this mealy-mouthedness makes me irritated with this otherwise fairly intelligent couple. On the whole, while this world of fading magic that Ms. Gower has created needs more explication, I am happy enough with the overall story that I am willing to wait for it.

Revealing Excellent novella! I read the entire series and got Kate’s viewpoint on their relationship and this story is Becker’s view on it. It is interesting to read a man’s view on the relationship with a woman in this case it is pack.

I have been reading this series from the beginning. All of the regular number books are from Kate's perspective. I often wonder what exactly is going through Becker's mind being that he is so moody and conflicted about things. Well I don't have to wonder any more. This was a great in-between book. His thoughts are just as jumbled as I imagined and it was awesome. The guy's view was so informative and had me understand more of the dynamic between the two main characters in the series.

I love how well the author shows this relationship from the male point-of-view. This story fills in a lot of the questions I had about the other books in the series!

Loved this mini-story from Becker's view, plus it really helps to flesh out the supporting characters in the rest of the series. ETA: Reread it, and still just love Becker.
