Short Story Review: The New World by Patrick Ness

Prequel to the Chaos Walking series, The New World is a 24 page short story about Viola before she landed on New World. I read it after finishing book 2 but I think it would also fit well between books 1 and 2. Very sad but insightful as well.

I love Viola as a character so it was a treat getting a little more of her back story.  For fans of the series, The New World is a little something extra that is well worth the read. A free download that I highly recommend. In only 24 pages I was still left amazed by Patrick Ness' writing and imagination.

  1. I just downloaded that for my nook. I'm reading The Knife of Never Letting Go and struggling with it. But I will not quit! ;)

  2. Just finished the trilogy a few days ago. I effing LOVED it. Now I'm dying to read this one. Too bad I don't have an e-reader. I just wish this is available in print.


Thanks a bunch for visiting :)
