A girl who’s always been in the shadows finds herself pursued by the unbelievably attractive new boy at school, who may or may not be the death of her. Another girl grows up mute because of a curse placed on her by a vindictive spirit, and later must decide whether to utter her first words to the boy she loves and risk killing everyone who hears her if the curse is real. And a third girl discovers that the real reason for her transient life with her mother has to do with belonging — literally belonging — to another world entirely, full of dreaded creatures who can transform into animals, and whose queen keeps little girls as personal pets until they grow to childbearing age.
From a writer of unparalleled imagination and emotional insight, three stories about the deliciousness of wanting and waiting for that moment when lips touch.

3 one of a kind gems for your fantasy library
What I found to be most satisfying about this series of stories is that they are completely different from daughter of smoke and bone series (which happens to be one of my fave series) Laini Taylor has the knack to switch her writing style from story to story so differently it's almost reading a short compilation of stories by a few different authors. it was refreshing that the author isn't afraid to branch out and risk her neck in different styles of writing where each story is so different and unique each a little concentrated gem.
the endings of each short packed real strong concluding punches that were not entirely expected but none-the-less pleasing to read.
narration was decent no complaints here
this book was both entrancing and pulled the reader in enough that I did happen to read this in one sitting.
