This book is a collection of short stories/novellas written to add on to The Darkest Minds trilogy. The first story follows a man trying to survive in the destroyed world, to do this he decides to become a skip tracer. In the process he comes across the character Zu and we learn about what happened to her during Never Fade. The second story is about the character Sam after Ruby leaves and her discovering that an old childhood friend of hers, Lucas, is at the camp thermund. The two form a risky plan of escape, but there's a reason no one leaves Thurmond. The last story also follows Sam but after the camps have closed and the trilogy has ended. Sam, along with many of the other kids have been abandoned by family and have no home. Sam once promised Lucas that she would find his sister Mia, and she will have to decide who to save first, herself or her promise.
These stories added on to the trilogy perfectly, there are no plot holes left open. They are both insightful, funny, and sad. Bracken did a great job keeping the feeling and vibe I loved about the first books while still making the stories exciting and new. I would definitely recommend this to those who have finished the original series and want more. These stories are truly lovely.

Adds to the series quite well. Explore deeper into the world of Ruby and friends. Questions will be asked. Who is the mysterious Gabe? What happened to Samantha? What can save the Reds? 13+

The novellas are a great addition to the series. I read the series in conjunction with these novellas and they added much to the details of the characters

If you enjoyed the Darkest Minds trilogy, you'll probably appreciate that the last novella in this anthology, Beyond the Night, provides more insight into what happens after the camps are shut down. I had felt that In the Afterlight didn't wrap up as well as it could have. I'm glad Bracken revisited it.
