This novella read like a text book. I know it's a kind of who's who among Blue Bloods, but it was kind of dry. I did enjoy Kingsley's remarks in some areas. ;) I was stoked about the short stories in here. I know I've read the one with Dylan before, but it was great seeing the emotion of Jack on their last night at Perry Street. I recommend this for those that want to know more about the characters. Also, if you have a hard time with what the words in the Sacred Language mean, this book has a nifty little appendix with the definitions.
