I believe writing a novella is a tough task for any writer to do. It is hard to tell the reader all they need to know in such a short amount of…well space. That is why most novellas written are continuations of previous books, going into more depth on a certain aspect of the book. But for an author to go out and write a novella based on an entirely new world, with characters the reader has never been introduced to before, well that is a challenge. But do not worry; Ross Harrison is able to pull this off with flying colors! His novella was more action packed, more detailed, and just more awesome than most full length books that I have read lately.
Kira is the feisty main character of the story. She is far from the typical whiny, poor me female leads that authors are feeding us lately. Ross gives us a character that has it all: sarcasm, strength, intelligence, humor…well this list could go on for a while, but I think you get the gist! And her voice, it is the perfect way to hear this story from. I loved the accent she had. It was a small added detail that just made it work. I feel like I have a connection to Kira…hmmm.
This story had plenty of action and twists that I didn’t see coming, even in the short length. It kept me reading, and when I got to the end… well let’s just say this is what went through my head “Bloody ‘ell, where is the rest?” That is a not so subtle hint…
But anyway, this is a great read. Short, sweet, and to the point. Definitely check this out!!
