The blurb for this book makes it sound as if we get a really detailed introduction to all the training she needs to prepare herself for life among humans yet in reality it is only a handful of pages. This should really have been used as a prologue in the actual novel instead of a tiny short story, in my opinion.
The story is ok, nothing wrong with it. I don't really feel that it adds anything to the series being written in this format though. Like I said, trim it up and use it as a prologue. That would give you a contrast between the emotionless individual being given her mission, and the woman with human emotions who is fully intigrated into human society that is in book one.
The version I read does not feature her meeting the man who would change her life as the Smashwords blurb seems to suggest. It does not cover all events up to the start of the first book in the series. This is why I feel it doesn't really offer much as a story on its own.
