About K.W. McCabe

K.W. McCabe is a Californian transplant to Minnesota. She lives there with her family where she tries very hard to stay warm in all the snow. She has loved fairy tales, Sci-fi, and fantasy all her life, and has been writing stories and poems of that nature since she could first spell. She has worked, in the past, as a library assistant, a baby sitter, a counseling hotline intern, and as a case manager. She maintains that art and writing can only be done when inspired, and inspiration comes from a sufficient amount of laziness. Currently, she is working on Dragon Kin.

I was given a coupon code to read this book for free and do know the author, but this review was not requested. As a fellow author I like to return the courtesy by sharing a review because I know how important they are to the writers who share their stories.

This story was an amazing one! I have to agree with the review below by author Valerie Bowen in saying it did end too far soon. I was hooked and this was a page turner. I enjoyed the tale between Thoman aka Death and Sarah/Celia. I now declare, "I want more!"

I've not read Choices, but will have to do so. I enjoy KW's tale and hope there will be a continuation. I am aware of her upcoming novel and look foward to reading The Dragon's Call.

Five stars K.W. McCabe!

I've never read anything quite like this. I enjoyed it very much. Well done. I will be checking out your other stories. I also live in Minnesota, not sure how you made that transition. You probably get a lot of writing done between November and April.

Review by: Valerie Bowen on July 10, 2012 :
First I would like to state I did receive a free copy of this through a coupon code. I would also like to state the author did not request my review, i do this out of respect for authors. K. W. McCabe's Angel of Death is a continuation of one of her short stories titled "Choices". I suggest, although it's not required, to read Choices prior to Angel of Death. The short story Choices sets the background for the main character Thomas. With that said, I'll get into the novel Angel of Death...

On his quest for a pure soul to take his place Thomas has again found himself in a dilemma. Knowing the only escape from his eternal blight he must make a decision to adopt the game of choice or to leave the a pure soul alone to go into the light. As the story progresses Thomas' inner turmoil tears him apart when he is tossed headlong into a decision he can not rightfully make. Can Thomas do the right thing or will a twist of fate change the rules of the game?

Ms. McCabe has written a winner! A real page turner. Your desire to see Thomas pulled from the shadow of darkness will keep you wondering what happens next. My only gripe about this novelette is it ended far too soon.
