Great Backgrounds!

If you want to learn a little about the women in the Valens Legacy this is a bit about the first 4. Things that are alluded to in the books. I found them very interesting and helped in rounding out their backgrounds a bit.
Leland King as usual does a magnificent job!

Unfinished stories...

So why would you have a man narrate an all female novella??? He did a good job with what he had to work with but WHY? Stories were unfinished and basic.

A solid addition to this world

I like that this gave a background into the girls. It's cool to get the insight now after they are all very familiar to us. This book feels like an origins book for all of them.

Excellent

What an excellent collection of short stories that brings to light aspects of our favorite characters and their pasts. Anyone else catch the the character from Jolene's story that showed up in Roberta's? Lastly, Daelyn and her car, had me smiling the whole way through.

Great short story

A great short story collection giving us more background on the strong women in Sean’s life. Leland King is still an A+ narrator.

Back stories of the wives

This one gives more of the back stories of the first of Sean's wives. So all those cryptic comments on why a shifty pawnbroker had to leave Vegas or how a wife got to India. It's a fun listen.
