These stories have the same flavor as Leigh’s other stories, but they lack the depth of those in the Language of Thorns (mostly because they’re shorter). For a book about the history of Saints, however, it’s pretty much what I would expect, and there were some nice tidbits and tie-ins with the rest of the series. Mostly they just made me want to go back and listen to the Grishaverse novels again.
I appreciated them more, with Lauren Fortgang and Ben Barnes reading them, than I would have if I’d read them myself, though I did miss out on the illustrations. The narration was excellent, I loved the intro/finale music, and in general, the audio production was top notch.
Thanks to NetGalley and Macmillan Audio for providing me with an audiobook ARC to review.
