A Short Story in the Network Series
Written and Narrated by Katie Cross
“You are a mighty little thing, Hazel.”
Hazel Monroe knows one thing: she wants to be a gardener.
Fingers in the soil, canopy overhead. That’s all she needs. Except the High Priestess Evelyn’s dark reign threatens to destroy even that simple desire.
If she can just get through the Network school system.
If she can just live out the Resistance that threatens to overthrow their insane leader.
If she can just . . . survive.
When the final battle at Chatham Castle begins, Hazel finds herself unexpectedly in the middle of an entirely different war. One between the vile Miss Mabel and her nefarious grandmother, May.
One that threatens to change the course of her quiet life beneath the trees that she so deeply longs for.
Until Hazel is discovered, and May’s wrath unfurls.
Fans of the Network Series can’t afford to miss this companion novella to the Network Series—covering the exact moment that launched the beloved story of Bianca Monroe.
It was great getting to hear more about Hazels life and the events that lead up to well spoilers so if you haven’t read the other books I won’t put down in a review what it is that things lead up to lol. I hope you all enjoy this book as much as I did. I love these novellas Katie writes. Each one is another little piece of the puzzle. So fun.
This is a great novella that gives the background of Hazel, Bianca’s grandmother. And how she received the inheritance curse from May. Katie does an excellent job narrating the difference characters. Interesting side note, the paths of these families cross in the future.
