My Review

I have no idea what to think about Alex’s novella.  It was nice being inside his head and I guess there was good insight into what happened in the crypts and how he got out.  But I felt like it served absolutely no purpose.  I was honestly alright not really knowing what happened to him.  It provided a little bit of mystery.

I actually would have liked a novella about what happened after Requiem.  Alex just didn’t need to exist.  The novella, not the character.  Obviously.

Characters 4/5
