During Friday Fling , I share with you a short story or "just for fun" book that I read and really enjoyed. It is a "mini review" instead of a full review to introduce you to something that I think is simply a fun, quick read--you know, like a cheap, easy Friday night date. *wink* Enjoy!
Release Date: 18 November 2011
Publisher: Otherworld Publications
A Goodreads friend of mine recommended this author to me and I have to say that I'm so happy that she did. The writing is fabulous and it's most definitely a short story that will make you want to read the upcoming novel.
In Before we are introduced to Heven and Sam, our two MCs from both of their POVs. The alternating POVs works well and the transitions are smooth. The short story gives you just enough of a glimpse into the lives and personalities of each person that you feel that first glimmer of a deeper connection. Heven wasn't the type of character that I generally "click" with right away, but SAM left me completely intrigued. WHAT IS HE? The darker snippets that we get from his POV lead me to believe that this boy's got some secrets and I NEED to know what they are.
The cliffhanger in this short story left me wanting MORE...in the good way. The author got me excited to learn more about these characters and what happens to them, which is what a prequel should do, right? I definitely recommend checking this one out and then preparing yourself to wait for the full novel, which is set to be released on December 16!!
