While the stories did not add entirely new and/or enlightening information, I still found them enjoyable. You are able to get inside Derek's head in two of the three stories, a character which is somewhat illusive and misunderstood in the series. The first story, Dangerous, was my favorite and featured Derek from a very young child witnessing his "pack" doing violent things to "current" events of his father disappearing etc.. I thought this story in particular was a nice addition to the Darkest Powers trilogy. The other two stories, one told by Derek and one told by Tori were entertaining but to a lesser degree. I did however like hearing Tori's thoughts on things since she does some disagreeable things and is not trusted in large part.
