I’m reluctant to reach for the extras this type, because it’s usually don’t bring absolutely nothing to the novel, aren’t especially surprising, are only a supplement and I don’t expect too much. Here was similar. I decided to read it, don’t regret it, because I love the world created by the author, but confirmed everything that I wrote earlier.

The book contains two stories, located in different places in time. From the Great Bazaar we find out a little more about Abban and his friendship with Arlen, and know exactly how Arlen came into possession maps to the lost city. It wasn’t especially thrilling, but it was nice to know. Bryan’s Gold takes us back in time to the moment, when Arlen studied in Miln, we know the story of his first big mission as a messenger. This part was really interesting, there isn’t too much influence on the course of events in the novel, but in itself as the story is interesting, especially for me, because I very liked Arlen from that early period and it was nice to read again something in this topic. Especially because there appears again a one-armed rock demon, his relationship with Arlen was one of my favorite topics in the book.

Between these two stories is located some unnecessary things, and I think it would be better, if they were stuck to the book, or that they weren’t there. Namely, two deleted scenes from The Painted Man, and some explanations of runs and the characteristics of the types of demons. There is also a glossary of language Krasians people... ahh, after Desert Spear completely useless for me, I'm a long time assimilated their culture and vocabulary, and stuck in my head, so a glossary was unnecessary for me in this short book.

Generally speaking, don’t necessarily need to read, but as someone really likes the author, is worth reading for sure.
