Short stories can be so deceiving. Some you pick up (or open on your computer) like a hurried bite grabbed on the way home from work. But Malicifer’s not like that. Think nouvelle cuisine, the plate attractive, not overly full, but every item carefully presented. You have to stop and spend time in the luxurious words to enjoy this tale.

Malicifer is actually a short story about a milk-maid named Maylin who is in love from afar with a handsome knight named Castellan.

Aubrie Dionne's Malicifer tells a tale of wizards, knights, zombies, a kraken, and a milkmaid turned heroine. The story is fast-paced and pulls the reader in and doesn't let go. Through Ms. Dionne's lyrical prose, the reader can hear the cursed sword awakening and summoning a new champion to fulfill its blood lust. The ending is surprising yet touching. Ms. Dionne uses her excellent storytelling to show how love is stronger than all, and I found myself cheering Maylin on through the very end.

Aubrie grew up watching the original Star Wars movies over and over again until she could recite and reenact every single scene in her backyard. She also loved The Goonies, Star Trek the Next Generation-favorite character was Data by far-, and Indiana Jones. But, her all time favorite movie was The Last Unicorn. She still wonders why the unicorn decided to change back to a unicorn in the end.
