Overall, if you’re looking for a nice fantasy short story to check out, I would recommend giving Threadbare a shot!
I loved the world building of this story. It was immersive, unique, and fun. I’m ready for a full length novel. Bethany wonderfully handled dropping us into this world for a short time without losing us with threads, waves, Sinkholes, and Drifters. I never felt confused or turned around. In fact, I just wanted more.
Bethany kept the pace moving forward at a run with a magical battle used to show us the depth of pain Bess felt at the choice she is forced to make. The ending brought hope and light to the story. This is where I longed for a full length novel the most. I wanted to taste everything a little longer before resolution. This is the hard part of a short story for the reader. I didn’t want it to be short.
If you want a quick adventure to read during a lunch break or while standing in line, this is well worth your money
Jennings does a good job writing action with a swift pace. The story rushed at an exciting clip. In this, I see a good debut and promise ahead.
However, the swiftness comes at a price. The scenario is underway before fully fleshing out the world and characters, and things resolve very quickly. The story feels like part of something greater, something I want to read. Again, praise with critique in that I wish the story were longer, but because I'm eager to read more.
Jennings is a promising writer.
The magic streams were fascinating. I thought it to be a really cool concept and absolutely loved how Bess's story unfolded, especially the ending. Those last few lines were epic.
Overall, an excellent read that leaves me wanting more of the author's writing!
I loved the length of Threadbare. As a short story, it was easy to read in under thirty minutes, and it kept my mind engaged the whole time. Even at the end, I wasn't really sure what was going to happen—yay for unpredictability! It did take me a little bit to get used to the first-person-present tense, but as I went along, I found that it actually fit the story very well. You're in the moment. You're there with Bess. You can almost see what's going on in your mind's eye.
Short stories can be challenging for an author to build a character or really develop a storyline, and I believe Bethany did an excellent job with the time she had. I would have liked to know more about Bess and why she felt the way she did, but that's the nature of a short story—you're not always going to get deep into who the characters are or what their situation is.
I highly recommend this enchanting little book for anyone who wants a quick, engaging read. If you've never tried this genre, Threadbare is a good place to start—a good story to give you an inkling for more.
I really enjoyed this story, and my only complaint is I want something new from Bethany to read now!
