Review by: Leigh M. Lane on Dec. 05, 2012 :
When a monster threatens a village on Halloween, Luwynda rises as the unexpected hero and confronts the menacing creature face to face.

Structurally similar to a mock epic, this story reminded me in many ways of the first part of the classic BEOWULF. I liked how Lopez chose to make her hero female, and also how she created a legend of her own in the often over-exaggerated tales behind Halloween’s shaky history. I felt the ending was a little rushed, but overall it is an enjoyable read.

I received a complimentary copy of this story from the author, with no additional compensation, in exchange for my review.
