I received a copy of this book at no cost from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
This short novella gives the backstory for Logan Westin, one of the main characters in TG Ayer’s Skinwalker series. Several of the events here are referenced — but not fleshed out — in the first book of that series, Skin Deep.
The story is good, plot wise, and leaves open several new mysteries for readers to await unveiling in the later series books, but the writing style is kind of choppy. It does a nice job, though, of shining a light on how Logan became the man that he is. For some reason, it’s listed as number 0.5 in the series on Goodreads but number 1.5 on Amazon. Whichever is correct, I strongly recommend reading Skin Deep before Pyros, even if you’re tempted to try the shorter work first as a kind of test drive, as reading them in the reverse order will spoil some of the surprises in Skin Deep.
It’s a nice chunk of information, though, and helps make some of Logan’s quirks make more sense.
