Yet Sin finds himself in the company of, quite frankly, the ugliest woman he's ever seen, he offers her friendship, knowing that he'll never feel anything more. Even though she's different to any other female he has ever met, he can't stop thinking about her.

I fell in love with Sin in the Tainted Accords series but this novella made me love him even more. I did not expect Sin's life to be like that and was pleasantly surprised through out the whole novella. Honestly, nothing in this novella was what I was expecting which made it that much more interesting that what I previously imagined. It was entertaining and captivating throughout the duration of the novella. I was sad whenever I had to put it down so life could get in the way but I thought of it in ever moment I was away from Sin. Olorna. Sweet, sweet Olorna. What can I say about you except my poor sweet child. I want to tuck you under my wing and to protect you from the world.
