This was a great read. For being such a short story there was alot involved: Many times, what you're looking for is right in front of you, greed will get you nowhere and you have to know when to call it quits. This story was well-written and quite enjoyable. Well worth the 10 minutes it takes to read and I'm definately planning on reading more by this author.

You don't often find short ebook downloads that give you the same experience a full length novel does, but this is one of those rarities. "Forgotten Canyon" tells a wonderful adventure story that will provide much entertainment in the short amount of time it takes to be read.

Story - Jonathon Scribner is a cartographer who lives in a world of luxury, but when he finds a mysterious map with the supposed location of a hidden treasure, he forsakes that luxury for a hike through a canyon that is difficult to maneuver through. Accompanied only by an unfriendly guide and a vast amount of horrible, stinging insects, Jonathon sets out on the adventure of a lifetime in order to become one of the richest and most famous men alive.

Writing Style - The author expertly shows the relationship between Jonathon and Riley, his guide. The author also conveys the atmosphere of the canyon extremely well to the reader; everything from the bugs to the sleeping bag to the cacti are explained perfectly. There is a bit of a history lesson in the story, as well, about Montezuma. Because I'm usually turned off or bored by historical stories, I was very pleasantly surprised to find out that I really enjoyed this history. It was very mysterious, adding to the adventure of this quest.

WARNINGS - Mild Peril

Overall - I loved this story! I thought it was extraordinarily well written, and at the same time, it was fascinating to read. It's adventurous, mysterious, and fun, which are some of the reasons that I've actually already re-read this story. It's such a good short download that I highly recommend.

If you're looking for a good and quick read during your lunch or smoke break at work, you might want to consider giving this one a try: it's about a fifteen minute read. If you think about a short story format, the author has to be good, fast, in order to get your attention and develop a plot and conclusion vs. the 100,000 words or so a novelist has. The author does so in rapid fashion, and this kind of reminds me of an old Twilight Zone type of story.

As I type this review, the Kindle version is free - grab it now at this price while you can.

The writing itself was solid. Even though it was a short story, there could have been a better effort at impressing realism of emotion into the account. The claimed maladies of the main character were stated, but never conveyed as if they really mattered or had any meaningful effect. The ultimate ending was very predictable, while the twist of how it came about was unique but somewhat vague in how it originated- What do the bees have to do with it apart from leave us alone and we'll leave you alone?

It is a story worth reading.

A healthy tension between the author and the main character can add zest to fiction, but this story seems mostly driven by the disdain the author has for her latte drinking main character and how poorly he stacks up against Riley, the rugged enigma of an outdoor guide. Less an adventure story than an exercise in predictability, when I finished this story I had to ask myself why it was even written.

A horror short story without many horrific elements, and I had no trouble falling asleep after. On Amazon, it's listed under Genre Fiction > Action & Adventure, but there's not a lot of that, either, and from the ending it seems closer to Horror. Good writing, decent attention to detail, but just not enough here to hold me. Three stars is the best I can give this one.

I found the characters in this story to be rather repelling. I suppose that was the point. I don't suppose one has to like any of the people in a story, but it helps.
