In this digital prequel novella set in the Red Queen world, Captain Farley exchanges coded transmissions with the resistance as she travels the land recruiting black market traders, smugglers, and extremists for her first attempt at an attack on the capital. She was raised to be strong, but planting the seeds of rebellion in Norta is a tougher job than expected—until she stumbles upon a connection that may prove to be the key to the entire operation: Mare Barrow.
“Steel Scars” by Victoria Aveyard was very confusing to me. I am still not totally sure I know what the result of this novella was. The mission communications were really boring and I still don’t know exactly what they were trying to say. I was looking forward to learning more about Farley and I don’t feel like I learned anything. As soon as Shade entered the story, I feel like that is when things became more interesting and then I wanted to learn more. I still don’t understand the reports but I can’t help but love how Farley and Shade interact together.
