A fun-filled adventure. This short story made me laugh out loud. I must confess to being a player from a young age where I named my Hero Quest Barbarian 'Barbie' and conquered. I enjoyed how this story was written from the characters' perspectives; very clever. Clearly this author has played a few games himself. The 'Players' have also been fleshed out well in a short span of time - you are ready to empathise with the characters as a they revolt.
captivatingly written. This story empathises with the plight of wartorn men and women, and yet still manages a fairytale feel. Some interesting turns, I would not have expected the ending when I began reading, and yet it is crafted well.
