See how it all starts for Callie and Michael in Portrait of a Starter, an exclusive ebook original short story by debut author Lissa Price. Published one month before her novel, STARTERS, went on sale, the ebook is a perfect entryway into the world of STARTERS, and a must-read for fans who've already read the novel. STARTERS is receiving rave reviews, including this from the Los Angeles Times: “The only thing better than a terrific concept is one that is as well executed as Starters. Readers who have been waiting for a worthy successor to Suzanne Collins’ The Hunger Games will find it here. Dystopian sci-fi at its best, Starters is a terrific series kickoff with a didn't-see-that-coming conclusion that will leave readers on the edges of their seats . . .”

A short story told in the POV of Michael. A caring and good and loyal friendlie of Callie. An artist who likes to draw portrait of starters.Short but really significant part of the world of Starters.
I enjoyed it. This is about Michael's perspective on the first couple of pages of Starters.
I haven't read yet the others books in the series, but I really like the world that Lissa Price has created. I liked to read an extract with Michael's point of view. It left me wanting to know more about it and read the entire books! If you hadn't read yet the entire books in the series you can read...
I think extra glimpses into series through short stories can be a nice bonus for fans, but sometimes they just end up being unnecessary and add nothing to the world. This one definitely falls into the latter. It doesn't help that it was so short and boring.
I can't understand why the French & German versions are free in the UK Amazon store but you have to pay for the English one!
