Reviews of Snow Witch by Stephanie Flint

J Sapphire reviewed on July 21, 2012

The character and her circumstances intrigued me, and the descriptions held and involved me, but I was disappointed that the story seemed not to have a whole plot. I should have been warned by the length, I suppose. I'd read a longer piece by this writer, if there were one on Smashwords.

Snow Witch was a nice short story. The protagonist is trying to do a spell to save her brother from death. She must wait for a willing sacrifice.

The story is simple, but has good tension. The waiting is suspenseful for such a short story, and you are made to believe that this story will not end happily. It doesn’t go to the length of really examining sacrifice, which I think would be the next level for this story, but what she does do is quite entertaining to read.

This e-book is free on Smashwords, and only 1200 words, so there’s no excuse not to go give it a read and a review.

I give this one 3 stars.

It's ok. It's not my favorite book, but it was worth the read.
