This for me was one of those glad you forced yourself to go on books. I liked the beginning of it, the earth shattering around Kali's feet the eventual destruction of everything, but as the book went on and she met Tiamat and learned about him and wh was responsible for all the destruction, I started getting a little fed up with her. I'm not usually a fan of the whole rapture and God's wrath stuff, since I've never bought into that whole scenario, Did this make me a little too critical of Kali and her acceptance of everything? Possibly. I kept wanting her to get angry instead of just Accepting God's will. Why was she so mad at Tiamat when he was just following orders? To be honest I kinda wanted to smack her. But as the book went on I became more sympathetic to her and by the end I was glad I had stuck with it.
I received this short story from librarything early reviewers in exchange for a review.
This was a very short but well written story. It is set entirely in a house surrounded by the dead, and tells the story of a new mother protecting her baby with no one to help except "biggun". I was impressed that in such a short story the author was able to pull me in and make me care for the characters. This is well worth the short amount of time it takes to read.
