As you may know I don't read a lot of prequels and novellas. A lot of times I don't care for them so I steer clear of them for the most part. The Crown and the Arrow is free on Amazon right now so I figured what the heck I will give it a shot.
This novella is only 9 pages long and it's a snippet from Khalid's POV. I thought it was okay. It was intriguing to see from Khalid's POV and lord knows I'm glad it was not a full book from his POV. I do NOT want that at all, but this being a quick read was fine. However, I found it unnecessary. Which is why I didn't rate it higher. I just wanted something in there that made me say oh hey I'm so glad I read that. Which was not the case for me.
Overall The Crown and the Arrow is not a necessary read, but it wasn't a bad read either. It's super short and free on Amazon right now so if you are a fan of The Wrath and the Dawn I would say go ahead and give this a go if you want. I don't think you are missing anything if you decide not to read it though.
*Note* I'm not sure if this is still free on Amazon or not.
