“Skyvale is on the verge of becoming a battleground. Told from the perspective of Tobiah, the crown prince with a dangerous secret, and set two years before the heart-racing action of The Orphan Queen, this 100-page digital novella brings to life one of Jodi Meadows’s most beloved characters.

Tobiah Pierce has been beaten and broken and has lost two people he cares about. His worst enemy knows his deepest secret. What he thought he knew about his family has fallen apart. And his parents push harder than ever for him to court Lady Meredith. But with the imminent threat of firefly, the newest and deadliest version of a magical drug, Tobiah doesn’t have time to sort through his problems. If he doesn’t act immediately, firefly will suffocate the city and everyone in it.

The Black Knife is the final of four prequel novellas that offer existing fans a deeper insight into a favorite character and the complex city of Skyvale, while new readers will find a stunning introduction to this rich world and the heart-pounding fantasy of the Orphan Queen series.”







I really enjoyed reading The Black Knife

As the last of the four prequel novellas, this story brings us closer to the events in the first book The Orphan Queen. But unlike most novellas, it did not feel like a "filler" or "money maker" novella. The story was wonderful and I loved watching him become the character I know and love from the full length novels. 

There has been a lot of foreshadowing in these novellas, and The Black Knife is no different. But, just as with the other three stories, these teasers of what is to come does not detract from the novellas' own story. 

You don't have to read these novellas before you pick up book one, but I highly recommend them to get a great glimpse into the mind of one of my favorite characters.
