I absolutely love Pippa DaCosta's 1000 Revolution series so of course I was excited when I found out she had released this prequel short story. If you've ever wondered how Caleb and Fran met and ended up working together then Girl From Above: Falling is a must read.
This is only a short story but it packs a lot in and I think it's a fabulous introduction to the series so if you've been unsure whether to read it or not this free read should help you make up your mind. The series is so much fun to read, the characters are a completely morally ambiguous bunch who are just as likely to stab each other in the back as they are to offer everlasting friendship but that makes them all the more fascinating. You really never can tell what to expect next, tentative truces can be destroyed in a moment and then you'll see enemies working together against an even greater foe but as soon as the threat is dealt with then all bets are off again.
My only disappointment with this story was that we didn't get to see #1000 since she's one of my favourite characters but I loved finding out a bit more about Caleb and Fran's history together and it's left me wanting to reread the rest of the series.
