An interesting story line, a few plot points seemed strange to me, not sure if they were unrealistic or if I am not sufficiently aware of the cultural norms in the area.

Haunting and beautiful in both prose and theme. I highly recommend this author, and look forward to reading more.

When a writer with an in-depth understanding of his chosen genre writes as well as John Muir does, a story that haunts long after the last line has been read is inevitable. Muir has crafted a well written, disturbing piece in this tale, and this I'm certain is just a taste of more to come. A writer to watch.
