Hardened by slavery and war, she longs for the simpler life, knowing that it might never be hers to enjoy. There is always another battle waiting to be fought, another foe on the horizon. Peace between humans, vampires, and otherkin may be nothing more than a dream, but Mira holds out hope.
It is during this brief respite that Mira is gifted one of her greatest weapons. Though it brings with it memories of a time when she was not so jaded it also comes with a reminder of terrible pain and loss. Awakening deeply hidden emotions within her, If Mira can use this to her advantage, she’ll have a new ally in the next battle to come.
If like me, you had wondered just who and why Mira was turned, then Transition is the book you have been waiting for. If you have been impressed by her staunch, steadfast attitude, then seeing her as young will be a delight. Mira has frankly always had a mouth on her, she's never been afraid to take a chance and leaving her human life behind in many ways feels inevitable. Seeing her earlier life before she became a gladiator is a strange mixture of unadulterated joy and yet, at the same time a grim realisation. An insightful look at what shapes her and as it ended a profound sense of hope.
