This is a great introduction to Amethyst's life.
As a nymph she's already labeled as something she isn't, accused of things she didn't do, and ends up having to do the one thing she wishes she didn't have to do at all. All because of a guy!
The detailing in this book is so good, that even though the story is so short, you feel, see, and experience everything Amethyst does. I really enjoyed this little tidbit and can't wait to read Shadows of the Past.
I give this book 5 of 5 paws
