100 Words and a Quote is a feature in which I review books in exactly 100 words and share my favorite quote from each book. It’s fun, but it can also be challenging to make what I have to say fit that count. Well, I do love a good challenge. I do this for books when I can’t give much detail for fear of spoiling, for series finales, when I need to clean up my TBR, for novellas, and for those rare times when I just don’t have much to say about a book whether I loved it or not. Hope you enjoy my take on the (extra mini) mini-review.
This forty-seven page short story is a prequel to my beloved Tracy Crosswhite series. This story takes place when Tracy is just a young patrol officer, years before she becomes the brilliant homicide detective she is now. It’s supposed to be a regular night of patrolling; but at 11:30 pm, only four hours into her shift, a call about a domestic disturbance takes a turn into something incredibly dangerous. The way Tracy handles everything is insight into the detective she’s going to become, and I loved getting this look back into the younger version of one of my favorite heroines.
“Veteran officers had told her that the crazies came out with the full moon, that it possessed some of them to behave in a manner they otherwise wouldn't. It wasn't a full werewolf transformation, but personalities changed just the same.”

Empire of Storms was a brilliant installment in the Throne of Glass series, though there was one particular character I missed. But Tower of Dawn makes up for that absence with an incredible story, cluing us in on just what Chaol Westfall was up to during the events taking place in EoS. This story is genius and brings us fantastic new characters and a HUGE revelation! Action, suspense, and romance abound in these pages; and Chaol’s story reminds his fans just why we fell in love with this perfectly imperfect human finding his way in a world full of magic.
