Not overly good, bad or original. A pleasant read but not overly engaging.

Gruesome little tale about a couple of bad guys. To say more would spoil things.

Review by: Dick Grimm on Aug. 24, 2015 :
With a little editing and a little help with English, this could have been a five-star story. Jacob Mossberg sets a dark mood from the very beginning of the story. I had confidence right away that the ending was going to be good, and it was. A lot of authors can't sell me from the beginning that their story is going to be worth reading. Mossberg did, and he didn't disappoint.

While I was reading the second half of the story, one question started bugging me: Why? Why was one character in particular behaving the way she/he did? I wondered if Mossberg had written a longer story, perhaps he would have gone deeper into that character. But at the very end, Mossberg made good use of that character's motivation.

I knew right away that, from the very first page, that Mossberg was not a native English speaker. That may throw off some readers, but with his dark fairy tale story, his voice seemed appropriate. If you're the kind of person who can't stand someone using "it's" when the author should use "its", you might find this story hard to get through. But I personally was able to ignore that and just enjoy the story.

Mossberg really rewarded me in the final page or two. But throughout he maintained that tone of a dark fairy tale that I found very readable. I'll definitely be reading more of Mossberg's work.
