Kodilynn Calhoun is a 25-year-old gal from Northeastern Indiana. She’s been writing seriously for over 10 years; her first real novel was a 300 page fantasy-monster with little plot and plenty of randomosity. Today, she’s mostly a writer of YA paranormals and is a sucker for a good love story and the fantastic: werewolves, shifters, incubi and gargoyles? You name it, she probably writes it! (And hopes you like it!)

Evelyn lives in a world where ‘takers’ steal people’s ‘Essence’ and leave them for dead. One morning her best friend (Jaeger) turns up at the café where she works, and she can immediately tell – someone has taken his essence.
Knowing that she only has a short time to try to get Jaeger’s essence back before he dies, Evelyn sets about trying to find the taker who took Jaeger’s essence, and get it back.


This was an okay short story, but all the stuff about the takers was a bit overkill for such a short story. This story is literally bam, bam, bam, the end. Very short, and with quite a bit of information and action crammed into one short novella.
I thought the romance felt a little false, and Jaeger’s sister’s reaction to it was a little odd also.
Overall; action packed short story.
6 out of 10.
