Stand Alone Book
This collection of short stories stands alone and it is not necessary to have read any of Jaya’s other adventures to enjoy the book. I have not read the rest of the series and did not feel left behind.
It has been awhile since I’ve read a collection of short stories. Probably since I read Sherlock Holmes many years ago. I forgot how enjoyable short stories can be. I have not had the pleasure to read Jaya’s other adventures and this was an enjoyable intro to Jaya and her friend Sanjay. They were fun and I liked that Sanjay had several adventures of his own. So many times I love some of the secondary characters in a series and wish to hear more about them – this was a great opportunity to do so. I have already picked up the first book in Pandian’s series and can’t wait to get started on it!
