This one turns up the wistfulness factor, adds in the strength of a crush that’s never been spoken aloud and then adds in hints of something darker. There is a revelation which caught me by surprise and it changes the tone of the entire story. When I reached the conclusion, it was difficult not to feel something strong by the time I read the last line of the story.
This one hit me in all the nostalgic feels by bringing forth my own carefree summer days without a plan in the world and endless possibilities for fun. The author really knows how to take me back to my younger days and then infuse them with tinges of sadness as the story continues. It also really highlights how powerful love can be between two people who know each other so well, they are the best of friends too. It can be a very primal feeling when this happens and the author captures all of that beautifully in the story.
As I continue to read the Night Portal stories, I’m more aware of the author’s storytelling style with each new one I read. Even though I’m aware of that style, he’s still able to surprise me with the twists and turns he puts in and also in how he concludes the story. To me, that ingenuity is something to be admired.
This is the fifth of the “Night Portals” series, which will consist of twelve short stories that are this author’s equivalent of “The Twilight Zone” or “Black Mirror”, telling darker tales about humanity and exploring “what if this happened” scenarios. Each one will be published monthly or so, though they are united by their dark theme. Based on this story and the previous works I’ve read by this author, I want to read them all as they come out and I greatly look forward to doing so.
Please note that I received an advance copy of this ebook.
