This short story held all the aspects that I look for in one. I read short stories for 2 reasons; one as a palette cleanser after reading very long cerebral novels and to try out new authors to see if I like them. This had just enough character development for a short story, you didn't know the character, you just knew enough to be able to gain an understanding of what was going on (some short stories try to develop their characters too much, that can be saved for a novel). It had a quick plot line that kept you on the edge of your seat wondering what would happen next, and it made me want more from this author. Very nice story of injustice.
Very well written story set within a modern world close to ours, but with some witchcraft, angels, and worship of gods in a caliber close to some of our mythological gods. I liked the story quite a bit, good character development, a unique plot line, and interesting mythology, but I hated the ending. I think it's supposed to be a cliffhanger, but really it's pulled off as seeming like the author just decided she was done writing and tied off the end abruptly. Interested in reading what's next and other writings from this author, but hoping the endings or cliffhangers get better.
