Review by: Mars B on March 27, 2014 :
I love how easily I'm transported to a different world where the characters values are so different from mine. It makes me angry the way some think, but at least I can understand them, given the setting. I'm happy that justice was served.
I was not entirely able to connect to all the characters, especially Rose. The beginning was detailed enough, their meeting I mean, but later on I lose my connection with her since I hear almost nothing of her. She stops being three-dimensional and it's sad because I was interested in her most of all.
I did think the ending came at top speed, too. But it's a short story, so maybe I should've expected that?
Overall, it was a fun & easy read and hope for more from the author!

I really enjoyed this. The narration flows effortlessly, the voice is distinct enough that I "heard" it while reading, and the slightly indifferent tone makes the chill-worthy parts even chillier.
