This short e-book was available for free from the author's website around christmas. I had already read and liked the short story "The Last Service" which is also included in this book, so I was intrigued.

I like this a lot better than the author's novella (which had potential but was much too short!). The short-story format really suits the author's easy style, very reminiscent of a 19th century fairy tale, which fits the content perfectly. (Hopefully she will write more?)
