My Review...

5 Star Rating

I'm so glad to see short stories being released in the Tales of Taelis series! Now I can see all the more of the characters I fell in love with in the novels.

In this short story, we get to explore more into the character of William, whom we met in Adventures and Adversities. The reader gets to find out more about his past, the things in life which drive him, his beliefs, and about his protectiveness of his sister.

Any cons? None. But... there are a lot of grammatical errors throughout the book, which sometimes distracts the reader from the story.

Overall, it's a solid story. I don't think it really matters if you read Admirable or the novel Adventures and Adversities first, but I really liked being able to read the "big" story in A&A first, and then read this short one for some backstory. Either way works though.

It's good, clean fiction!

Admirable is available on Amazon in e-book format.
