I started reading this short novella with no great expectations. Due to limited time i thought i'd read it over the course of a few days. Ha from page 1 on i couldn't put it down again. I love the way with words that Scott has. This novella is recommendable for adults that like modern day fantasy. A sad and touching story which will carry you along from the first to the last page. I am looking forward to read more of his works.

What a wonderful, delightful, magical, tale! We have here a sort of bayou- backwoods-rural fantasy, with multiverses, magical beings, and alternate dimensions!

There is hope in the swamp (and even in the city!)

If you like your paranormal with a flair of sci fi, and your romance with a flavor of paranormal--well, come right over

My opinion: I found this novella to be quite silly in its' storyline and language. I simply couldn't get past it. When I had agreed to review this book, I thought I would be reviewing a more of a horror book. It wasn't. I think a good way to describe it would be quirky. For the most part, I love quirky, but it has to have the flow of the story to back it up. In my opinion, this one didn't. I found myself rolling my eyes quite a bit which is never a good thing. Plus, it took me a day or two to re ...more
