After the battle at the Black Castle, the survivors have returned and peace has once again settled on the village of Lia Fail. Follow the changes that have transpired in Alia Stark, as well as her family and friends, in this omnibus of tales.
From The Gathering to The Bridging is a collection of short stories from the Lia Fail Chronicles covering the gap of almost two years from the end of The Gathering and taking the reader into the next novel, The Bridging. A Wish, A Touch, A Kiss, A Birthday (Bonus Story) and A Storm contain vital information in the continuation of The Lia Fail Chronicles. Meet the newest members of the Fail, explore new love, adventures and magic, as we travel From The Gathering to The Bridging.
This book is a collection of short stories focusing on two different families from the Lia Fail Colony. They take place after The Gathering and before the next book in this series. There are first kisses, new relationships, and doubt. My favorite story is A Wish. It is the kind of story that makes you all warm and happy. Alia makes a wish upon a star for happiness and peace for her family. Without giving anything away, this story will make you think about miracles in a new way.
While the first book of the series deals with some intense (and sometimes horrific) matters, this collection of short stories is a great way to catch up on the happenings of Lia Fail and give the reader hope for the next installment of this series. I really enjoyed the collection and recommend it to anyone that has read The Gathering.
