Please note: I don't review to provide synopses, I review to share a purely visceral reaction to books and perhaps answer some of the questions I ask when I'm contemplating investing time and money into a book.


I finished this at least two weeks ago and I'm just getting around to putting a review up. This is a very short story, and while it is very well written - I was completely transported into the scenario, and the action was paced perfectly - there was nothing original in the way it played out. Every motivation, plot device and twist I've seen done dozens of times. But the author knows how to draw a mental picture and move characters around and there's a lot to be said for the comfort of familiarity. I'm giving this three stars because the author had the good sense to wrap this up before it got repetitive.
