  • The Thief's Tale (1.6) on Dec. 17, 2015

    The Thief's Tale by Lee Murray begins with an interesting premise and winds its way into something all together different. The beginning reads like a stereotypical story of mystery but it soon becomes apparent that mystery is just one of the tropes used in this hybrid tale. A moral imperative lies at the heart of this story - a theft unravels consequences for Whitney, the lead character, and she is soon embroiled in a deadly curse which threatens to destroy her and members of her household in the strange little town of Refuge. Good story, but I did feel as though it could have been fleshed out (no pun intended) a lot more. The story could've easily extended itself to a novella with all the interesting threads. Despite that - the sales of this little page-turner are for a great cause and I recommend you grab a copy now. William Cook - author of Blood Related.
