And the Haldis pack that would have been his future is irreparably broken by Calla’s betrayal. Suffering at the hands of the Keepers, Ansel is losing everything he’s ever loved. The only chance he has to save himself means an alliance with his tormentors, and repaying Calla in full for her treachery. In this novella, find out why Ansel makes the decisions he does in Andrea Cremer’s New York Times bestselling novel, Wolfsbane.
This novella is written from Ansel’s perspective while he is held prisoner.
I was shocked by how much hatred he had for his sister. I now understand why he wouldn’t get near her when they were reunited. He was tortured mentally and physically. He went through hell while in that cell. My stomach churned with the things Ren was telling him during his moment of weakness. The whole time I was thinking, “how could you.”
This story isn’t completely necessary to tell in order to understand Ansel. It does give an account of what actually happened to him while held captive. You never really know until this novella.
