I really enjoyed this one. It was cute and sweet. I fell in love with both Jared and Dante. I'll admit it was a bit creepy how Dante was stalking Jared for so long and how even though Jared was scared of Dante, he was like a moth to a flame anytime Dante was near but ultimately fascinating how Jared always knew when Dante was close just by smell and sound alone. Still, I loved how Jared was blind but still functional. He was completely independent and confident as well. It was interesting to say ...more

4.75, only because the story didn't feel finished. I was waiting for villains to pop out of the shadows, one of the growing number of unsavory hunters Dante mentions being on the prowl, and for Jared to discover his higher purpose and how his new relationship with the vampire will enhance his supernatural gifts.

Here's hoping there's a sequel!

This intriguing short is set in a world where mystical things are not all that unusual, at least for Jared. He may be blind, but thanks to his amethyst amulet given him by his grandmother, he sees in colors. People are represented as colors and he’s extremely confident in his abilities to function in the world without traditional sight. He’s followed by a mysterious stranger for several weeks of which he’s quite aware. He knows the stranger is red, and when he’s finally approached on a late nigh ...more

Very enjoyable for a short story. I was just left wanting more (more character development, more plot, more everything).
