We all know the stories about the Hedgehog incident, but what truly happened on that day? Who was the cause of the incident? What were the plans? I was delighted that this short story would finally come out and that I could read it!

It all starts mysterious with two characters infiltrating a party along with a hedgehog. Yep, that is a great start in my eyes. Who are these strangers? We then switch to Alexia and see how she is having the most dreadful of parties. Her mom is also not helping, she clearly cares more about her two other daughters over Alexia. Thankfully, and I was cheering, the werewolves make an entrance and I just love the conversations between Lyall, Maccon, and Alexia. Maccon really needs to learn how to be a bit more gentle and elegant and not say such things to a lady gasp. Then again, I think if he hadn’t and if he was polite, that Alexia would never have married him. Yep. This girl isn’t looking for polite chitchat or boring guys. I loved how Alexia stood her ground and wasn’t afraid to say what she wanted.

Then we see a plan set in motion, one that makes sure that Alexia is in a certain place in a certain time. I loved that Alexia just went with it. I guess I would have done the same if I was in her shoes. Boring party wearing a horrific dress? If I get an offer to go outside… Then sure, let’s go outside. Unchaperoned. What happens next had me in complete stitches, oh my! I don’t want to spoil anything so I am just going to be as vague as possible. 😛
I was cheering and squealing as mad while Maccon and Alexia had their conversation. Yes! Yes! Oh, and poor hedgehog.

The ending with the revelation who the mystery person was? OMG OMG OMGOMG I was just flailing and almost jumping up and down. How wonderful to see that person again! I am so happy that they are still doing things like this. dances

All in all, if you are a fan of the series then I would HIGHLY recommend this fun book to all. It is short and it makes you long for more, it is perfection.
