on July 24, 2012 :
This isn't really a short story but one chapter in a longer work. Rather than starting at the beginning, it seems to start in the middle and ends, well, a little later in the middle. I presume this is offered as a free tidbit to entice readers to buy other segments of the story. As such, it does an excellent job since it is very well written and quite interesting. The wraith in the opening pages sounds annoyingly like Gollum, but other than that minor criticism, I enjoyed this.
I recommend that fans of this genre download this and then decide how much of the rest of the story they want to read.
