I enjoyed this short story. It is a lot to digest, but since it's a prequel that's easy to forgive. Short stories aren't easy to get just right. But I was very intrigued and can't stop thinking about Shania's journey to Atlanta. I can't wait to see what happens. I'm really looking forward this series. It's a new and original concept. and refreshing addition to the fantasy genre.

A more thorough review to come the blog.
Fairly good! I kept wanting to read more and more and when I finally got to the end I was a little ticked off because the next book is not released until July. Perhaps I can remember to purchase it. Now I remember why I don't read books unless the entire story line has been released.
I enjoyed Flee. It's a short lead-in to a full length novel giving some background on the characters. Looking forward to read The Soul Eaters.

As a mother of a young girl, I find this terrifying. Alicia is a wonderful writer, creating vivid images that will haunt your nightmares.

Flee by Alicia McCalla is a short story about Shania. Her grandmother has just died and she is dealing with a number of serious issues. One such issue is an alcoholic ex-boyfriend who quickly becomes a danger to Shania and her young daughter. On the surface this could be a Lifetime movie about domestic violence and stalking, but there are supernatural elements that quickly come into play. Reading this as a short story is like eating a caramel and trying to chew it, getting it stuck in your back ...more

It had some interesting elements, but the execution failed to deliver a coherent story.
Color me confused...this book started off with promise. There were so many elements for a great story...death of a family matriarch, unrequited love, a secret child, love that hasn't been revealed, and more. As the plot began to unfold as characters were revealed, as soon as the supernatural elements were firmly introduced, BAM! The story ended. MIT felt abrupt and incomplete, and I'm hoping that this is a prequel to what will be an amazing read in months to come.
Confusing story that ends before it even gets started. Had an interesting plot that needed more developing.
Wow. Good prequel. I can't wait to read the rest of this storyline.
Interesting story line, cant wait to read the series.
So poorly executed.

It took thirty years for Alicia to accept her calling as a writer of "unusual stories." Always writing edgy tales that pushed the envelope. She learned to hide her violent, heart-pumping,and tragically romantic stories from family and friends.

It wasn't until she joined RWA that she began to share her stories openly and take the plunge. Alicia writes for both new adults and adults with her brand of
