8) Vanishing Act - brand-new Savannah/Adam novella set after "Thirteen"(less)

Shona's review 5 of 5 stars

How can I not give this 5 stars? Some of my most favourite characters are in these books and I get to see a different side of them that hasn't been possible until now. Yes I have read some of these stories before, but honestly I can not get enough of this world that Armstrong has built. 

Who would walk away from seeing just a snippet of Adam when he was a youngster, before he found out he was half demon?
Or seeing what life was really like for Cassandra when she isnt surrounded by the other supernaturals.. This is a great chance to get a sneak peek inside her head. And I loved it.
The best part of this book for me? Was most definitely Hidden. Seeing Clay and Elena interact with the kids was, for me, one of the best things ever. You get to see a real whole other side to Clay when he's with his kids and it is jaw dropping. This one actually had me teary eyed by the end. 

I am always amazed at how well Armstrong can write such short stories without the reader feeling like they have been bumped out of a proper story.
