The story is less than 15 pages long, so there isn't really time for much to develop. However, I was impressed with how much Hendrickson managed to relay in so few words. The language leans toward some version of oldish English (I guess). It's full of word like ere and erst. It fits the fairytale-like telling of the story, but I found it also felt artificial. I've previously read one of Hedrickson's Sci-fi books (Rogue Hunter: Quest of the Hunter). I'll be honest and say I apparently prefer his space opera to his fantasy. But he certainly knows how to write.

I was looking for something short to read before bed and came across this on my iPad. I had downloaded it from Smashwords and I'm so glad I read it. It's perfect if you want a really solid, good short story. It's a well written fantasy tale of a man and his journey through life. I loved the ending. It gave the story a feel as though it could be passed to my children. At 10 pages its very short..but doesn't feel short. It's the perfect length. I'll certainly read more from this author!! Highly recommend it.

Holy crap was this ever short! I was done in 15 minutes including distractions. But no less enjoyable. And what a beautiful eye catching cover, even for such a short little tale!
Felt like a little fairytale with a nice feel good moral to the story. Pleasant read for children, and adults alike. I commend the author for building the characters up so well in such minimal length. He had me fairly intrigued, even though the ending felt a little rushed for my taste. But I very much enjoyed his style of writing.

Absolutely stunning and magical. The world-building in 10 pages was enough to satisfy me. This story was nothing short of a magical fairy tale. Naran's journey and healing abilities remind me of Jesus of the Bible for some strange reason, but the image fits the story perfectly. I liked how his family had to go through the trials of rejection by other others and their final transformation summed up the story very well.
