5 out of 5

Kat, unknowing to her, is a genetically modified vampire as one of the Edison Group experiments. Though, when Marguerite, a vampire, feels sorry for Kat, she helps her escape from the Edison Group. However, what will happen when they finally catch her?

A very short story. According to The Darkest Powers website, this story was originally published in The Eternal Kiss anthology. Kat’s story is then continued in the anthology Kisses from Hell, which I will try to read later on.

Not really long enough to give enough details or events, but the glimpse at the characters got me interested in Kat’s stories. :) Even though it doesn’t have that much details or events, it was still enjoyable to read. Like I said, this short story got me interested in reading the continuation in the anthology. ;)

When Chloe and Derek get off the bus and separate from Tori and Simon, what exactly happens with them? Read this short story and find out.

The plot of this short story is between Chapter 28 and Chapter 37 (around page 309) of The Awakening. However, I suggest reading the book first and then read this short story.

Unlike the other short stories, this one is good to have out of the books. Why? Because it doesn’t have the same depth or feeling as the second book, so it wouldn’t make sense to have in the book. Also, unlike the other short stories, this one narrated by Tori with a little narration by Simon. However, the difference in narration was not the reason why I didn’t like it that much. I didn’t like this short that much because it feels like the author skipped events and some details in order to make it shorter. There were plenty of descriptions, but I wish there were more details to the events of this short story.

Also, please note, this is a review of the free short story. It is no longer free online since it will be published in a book along with the Dangerous and Divided short stories. I have no idea if the previous free version is the same as the combined version or not.

There are also, I think, two more short stories. I’ll have to look it up. One should be in a book and the other is included in another combination e-book of short stories.

Derek and Simon are separated from Rae and Chloe, but what kind of troubles do they have while separated from the girls? You’ll find out in this short story.

The plot basically belongs between books one and two of the series. It is between on Chapter 44 of The Summoning and Chapter 16 of The Awakening. Despite going into The Awakening, I would suggest reading this short story before you read The Awakening, so you won’t really forget anything.

Anyways, in my opinion, this short, or most of it anyways, should have been added to The Summoning in order to give it a little bit more depth. I like how Derek narrates this short story – it is way less annoying than having Chloe narrating the whole story. You also get a peek at Derek and Simon’s feelings towards Chloe, which makes this short story even more interesting than the first book. I just wish the author could have put this in the books – in order to make them have more depth and humor.

Also, please note, this is a review of the free short story. It is no longer free online since it will be published in a book along with the Dangerous and Disenchanted short stories. I have no idea if the previous free version is the same as the combined version or not.

Derek Souza is a werewolf. After his brothers are taken away, Simon Bae’s father takes him in. However, when Derek accidentally hurts someone, they have to go on the run again. Though, this time will be different when their Dad suddenly disappears. What will happen to them now?

Since I have already read the books in the Darkest Powers arc, I decided to re-read it along with the free online short stories. In the books, you really don’t get to know the thinking of the other characters, except for Chloe, so I’m grateful for these short stories. For a short story, it has a good amount of descriptions and growth. I also like how you get to know Derek and Simon better in this story than in the books/series. Also, these events happen before Chloe goes to Lyle House.

Though, overall, it is a good short story to get to know other characters and information that is never really explained in depth in the books. It was more interesting than the books/series.

Also, please note, this is a review of the free short story. It is no longer free online since it will be published in a book along with the Divided and Disenchanted short stories. I have no idea if the previous free version is the same as the combined version or not.
