Review: The Ash-Born Boy by Victoria Schwab

The Ash-Born Boy (The Near Witch, #0.5)
The Ash-Born Boy
ebook, 61 pages
Published May 15th 2012 by Hyperion
Before he came to Near...
Before he met Lexi...
Before they faced the witch...
Who was the boy named Cole?

Follow us to Dale, a city on a hill, where in a matter of days fire will devour everything. Meet the Lord and Lady, and their son, the boy destined to inherit all...until everything turns to ash.

It's time to learn the truth behind the stranger's story.
My Thoughts/Review:
This was another great story from Victoria Schwab. It really dives into the backstory of Cole aka William. It is a side you don't get enough of from The Near Witch. You get to learn really why Cole is the way he is and how he comes into his powers and what exactly it is that makes him that powerful. I loved getting inside his head and learning about his personality some more. It was so great to read about his story and learn about what he had to go through to get him to the point where he enters into Lexi's story.

Once again, I fell in love with Schwab's writing and the world she has created. This story makes me want a sequel to The Near Witch so badly. If you have read The Near Witch, I definitely suggest you read this free short story. It is completely required that you do so. It is totally worth the dive back into the world of The Near Witch. I really loved reading Schwab's prose again, I can't wait to read her other book The Archived. So go check it out, the story is free and you can't beat that. =]
Overall, I give this book:
"Another head dive into a wonderful world with such great prose and magic." =]
5 out of 5 Stars
