In this dramatic prequel to the award-winning Chaos Walking Trilogy, author Patrick Ness gives us the story of Viola's journey to the New World.

In this short story, written entirely from Viola's point of view, we experience her trip to the New World. The preperation to arrive and the actual arrival and how Viola felt about all this. I read this prequel when I already finished the entire trilogy, and I have to say that I've gotten even more respect for Viola than I already had after reading the books. I knew she was strong female character, one of the strongest I've come across in YA - but this confirms it yet again.

We come full circle, experiencing Viola's arrival at the New World, filling in the pieces we missed when we met her in The Knife of Never Letting Go. A great addition to the series for fans of Chaos Walking and a nice way to introduce new readers to this awesome series.
