This was the prequel for the story I will review a bit later. It is very short, but I am sad to say that I did not enjoy it. The story seemed to jump around and I just couldn't connect with Ophelia nor could I really get a handle on what was going on. However, I will say by the end of the prequel, I was curious about the main story and event that I was about to read. You do not have to read this one to get into the next book.
