After coming back from the dead, Boller has a new intensifying supernatural ability. Is this new psychic power something he can use to benefit himself? Is it something he can use to help others? Maybe it's just a curse.
Zaden is not your typical vampire hunter. Where others may find and kill the demons, Zaden captures them to torture them for information. It all comes to a head in this story where Zaden catches up with his ultimate prize, a vampire with a soul.
This short story held all the aspects that I look for in one. I read short stories for 2 reasons; one as a palette cleanser after reading very long cerebral novels and to try out new authors to see if I like them. This had just enough character development for a short story, you didn't know the character, you just knew enough to be able to gain an understanding of what was going on (some short stories try to develop their characters too much, that can be saved for a novel). It had a quick plot line that kept you on the edge of your seat wondering what would happen next, and it made me want more from this author. Very nice story of injustice.
