Book Info: Genre: Dark Fantasy
Reading Level: YA
Recommended for: fans of dark fantasy, Goths, followers of the Old Ways

Disclosure: I picked up a free copy on Smashwords; I am under no obligation but happy to provide an honest review.

Synopsis: Asha is a 15-year old girl with the soul of a demon. She plans to wage war against heaven and hell using humanity as her main weapon. Asha begins the epic tale of the revenge of the dark goddess of demons!

My Thoughts: I had planned to read the first book in Kevis Hendrickson’s space opera, Rogue Hunter: Inquest and noticed I had this short story, so decided to read it first.

This is a short story, so there isn’t much I can tell you about it without spoiling it, but I will say it was brilliant! Those who identify as Goth, followers of the Old Ways, those interested in demons and demonology, followers of Cerridwen, fans of dark fiction – all though love this wonderful short. I definitely hope Kevis writes more books featuring Asha – I want to know MORE! Plus Cerridwen is among those of the Old Goddesses I honor, so I was particularly interested in this. And I liked Morgana. Highly recommended!

Review by: Mackenzie Thornton on July 25, 2012 :
I'm not generally a fan of short fiction, but I quite liked Asha.

I almost wish the book was longer so I could see more of our world through Asha's eyes. In some spots her character came fully to life, especially during the scenes where she flexes her power. In other parts she tends to fall flat. I understand that on one hand she probably isn't supposed to have emotions, or show emotions like a normal person would, but I feel with some tweeking that would come across a lot better.

It would be interesting to see Asha when she's older, to see if her point of view changes at all. As much as she doesn't care about our world, she cares for her earth-mother (for some reason I love that she called her this). It would be interesting to see if as she got older more people would have this kind of an impact on people. If she'd fall in love or not.

All in all, this was a great short read. I certainly would recommend it to anyone who has a couple of minutes to spare and who enjoys a cold plate of revenge every now and then (you know who you are).

Review by: Yve on July 24, 2012 :
This would have received 4 stars from me if the author had spent more time building conflict and tension in the story and the ending hadn't been so abrupt. Those two factors detracted from what was a very interesting, well-written story of a demon who answered a challenge to become human.

This is a fantastic story. I really enjoyed it. I couldn't put it down and read the entire book in one sitting. I look forward to reading more about Asha. I received this book free from the ARR program but would pay to read more from this very gifted story teller, Kevis Hendrickson.

Mr. Henderickson already knows what half this review was originally going to entail! (^_~). I LOVED THIS BOOK TO A SQUISHABLE DEATH!! Asha and Morganna are very sexy and likable....I hope we can see more of this story in development, 'cause I have a feeling that karma and revenge will do nicely...My first taste of dark fantasy, want more. Most demons that I've read about would kill thier human caregivers in Asha's case, but it was nice to see her actually care. This story flowed seamlessly.

First of all, I would like to say that I'm a big fan of Kevis. I've had the chance to read his books (Bounty Hunter series) and enjoyed the flow of words, his prose. He has a way of describing that one feels as if you with the character, experience what she's experiencing.

Asha: The cover; I love it! Prose; love it
I enjoy reading dark fantasy, and this one didn't dissapoint.
Asha is not your typical 15 year old teenager. She possesses the soul of a demon. I like her strong voice and character and her compassion towards her mom. I enjoyed the interaction between Asha and Morgana. made her seem more alive. At the end of the story ( I didnt want it to end, I wanted more) I could darkness unleashed as her power awakened.
Overall, I enjoyed reading this story.Good work, Kevis. Would love to read what happens after her power after. Her revenge.
