Rating: 3.6 – a mix of legends within a fantasy world
Opinion: I thought this book would be either a collection of stories or entire short story, not a combination of the two. But it was a good combination. It was well written. I enjoyed the story about the main character of The Green Rider series’ friend. Though the last few books did that as well but this book solely focused on Estral. I liked this story, though it didn’t continue the Green Rider plot along. I was a nice relaxing story. It’s a good expiation story to the Green Rider series.
