This is a prequel to a new series by author David Wailing. It’s a short story and since it’s a prequel it doesn’t resolve what is going on, but the story does resolve her situation. It’s well written, although I found it to be a little verbose at times, but that may have been due to the author needing to stretch the story a tad, although I think there were a few areas where he could have naturally stretched it out but then it could run away and become a full novella or novel instead of a short story!
Overall, though I really liked the story and it definitely got me intrigued about the new book Under which was just recently released.
If you want a decent story that gives you just enough to keep you going but doesn’t solve the mystery this is a great short story leading into the full novel.
I have to say I much prefer this approach of releasing a semi self-contained short story or novella than just releasing the first 5 chapters or 25 pages or whatever some authors do. To me it’s more of an entertaining advertisement for the book even though it takes more work than just here’s the first 5 chapters.
It is available DRM Free.
I don't mind a bit of gore, or splatter based horror, but I much prefer horror which uses mood and suggestion to spin the terror. The author manages just that here with his story. The moods of fear and confusion are eloquently portrayed, and effectively. It's not until near the end you get a glimpse of what is going, and even then all is not fully revealed - we'll have to wait for the following novel to reveal more.
As with his previous works, I appreciated his talent for word play. With short stories it's important to keep focused and not waste words, and a lot of craft is evident in the writing of this story.
It's an interesting technique to use a short story to build interest in a forthcoming, and larger release. It can often backfire if the short story doesn't stand on its own merits. This story works well on its own, telling the story of Emily's journey home, yet still maintaining enough mystery to entice interest in the novel. It's worked for me, and I can't wait for its release!
Horror fans will love this quick read.
