Review by: David Blake on Sep. 29, 2012 :
Well, the writing shows slight improvement on some of the works that Mr Von Stoller was churning out previously, the punctuation and spelling is a little better and at least there's some attempt to establish a character.


It's all fact, fact, fact. The first two sentences, for example, tell us that Sam is wealthy, lives alone in a mansion, is in his "late forties" (why not give his exact age?), and that he's lonely and wants a female companion. Information imparted to the reader in the most straightforward, uninteresting way possible. Yet even with this prosaic approach, there is just as much the reader is NOT told: WHY is Sam alone? WHY has he waited until his "late forties" to go out and look for a girl? Has he always been rich? What are his character traits?

Try this for an opening:
As the heavy rain rasped against the windows of his 18th Century mansion, Sam Edwards looked at the portrait of his late, beloved Elsa that hung on the oak panelled wall and felt as thunderous as the weather outside. He hurled his unfinished glass of scotch into the tempestuous fire and snatched his car keys off the table, determined that he was not going to spend another evening with just the bitter memories of that large draughty room to keep him company.

There. Two sentences only, which establish that Sam is lonely, is going out to look for company, that he lives in a mansion, that it's a stormy night, that he drives, that he's in some sort of emotional turmoil because of a bereavement, that he drinks scotch, and we even get a suggestion of what the room looks like.

The dialogue in the story is very dull and unnatural. Sam and Melissa meet, then in the next sentence were told that they feel like they've known each other all their lives - yet Sam hasn't even asked what her name is yet! Let alone the fact he hasn't even established where she's from or why she was crying. He effectively proposes marriage and her reaction? "That sounds fine to me." Who said romance was dead?

As for the resolution, and the explanation about Melissa, it's utterly ridiculous.

Poorly constructed and the ending wasn't intriguing at all.

I was expecting the end with something like curse or witch anger related... maybe an urban witch would have done, if someone says witches are not an urban material. Anyway nice story
