What Other YA Fantasy Lovers are Saying . . .
The book gave insight to various major characters of the Network Series, before the timeline of the series. It's fascinating to get the background on the people, from when they were young. I especially liked the history of Miss Scarlett, and the romance of Marie and Derek. Be advised, the stories won't mean much until you've read The Network Series. But after you finish, they will add depth and appreciation of the characters. Also, if you enjoyed the series, sign up for Katie's newsletter. She posts short excerpts that didn't make the cut for the series. They also give more depth to the characters.
I love this series! Wish there were more coming!
I have read and enjoyed the complete Network series, and looking forward to the next! The addition of the short stories is great for more in depth on the characters, which I really like.
Thanks again, Katie! I am waiting for the next adventure, but not very patiently! This is a good read. Read the series first. If you like adventure with a bit of romance. but not gushy, this is it!
I LOVE the Network Series. So I was excited about diving in for more short stories from some of the characters I'm going to miss most (Merrick, Derek and Mildred, anyone?)To be honest, I was pretty surprised by it, too, since Camille had a large section of short stories. I kind of really didn't even a little bit like Camille in the books my first time through. She bugged me. Her sweetness made my teeth hurt.But seeing her - not from Bianca's POV but in her own world - really gave me an appreciation for her and her life. I still think I might be a bit too "Save yourself, honey" for her, but I really grew a soft spot for her thanks to her portion of the short stories.Plus did I mention Merrick?Lots and lots of Merrick.Mmmmmmmm so good.Must read for any Network fans!
