Lineage - subtitled A Beginning - does just that. This is a tale of vampires and vagrants, in which a down-on-her-luck girl who makes bad choices in boyfriends ends up caught between gang bosses and something a whole lot more dangerous - and the key to her survival lies in, fittingly enough, her blood.
For Emma, the lead character, has an ancestry - a lineage - that marks her out as more special than she believes herself to be.
It's a touching tale - full of neat little touches, such as the explanation for why vampires don't go out in daylight being that natural sunlight shows them as they would look at their true age.
The end - without offering spoilers - gives a launch point from which I want to know more, and look forward to finding out where this tale will go next.
It's only a short story - probably about 5,000 words or so - but great for a quick read for the bus or train.
Gudytha brings a new dimension to Emma's life, and the events which bond them raise questions that intrigue the reader and make them want to know far more than what is told in this short story. The humour is dark yet vivid, which really appealed to me as a reader.
Not only do I enjoy this writer's style immensely, I definitely want to read on and know more of this story. I plan to read the next short in this series very soon.

Review: I enjoyed reading this short story because of the strong characters and the level of intrigue - you know enough to understand what's going on but there are various hints and suggestions that there is so much more to learn. The violence and injuries are believable and the standard vampire tropes are challenged which in itself is fresh and interesting. Looking forward to finding out more!
