Full disclosure: I received a free e-copy of this novella in exchange for an honest review.

A SINGLE THREAD is a really imaginative and eerie NA Paranormal novella with some very interesting ideas. I found the mythology behind the many paranormal aspects to be pretty unique (at least, within my reading of Paranormal novels) and the spidery theme was equal parts fascinating and creepy.

That being said, because of the quickened pacing necessary in order to fit a novella length, I had a little trouble really understanding and accepting the cryptic (and strange) world of the book. This may be partially at fault to the fact that I have not, in fact, read the previous book I SEE THE WEB, but I also found the characters’ quick acceptance of the paranormal elements that were not a part of their everyday world as they knew it a little beyond my suspension of disbelief. While the protagonist Morgan has some thoughts throughout about the absurdity of the many situations he ends up in, it didn’t feel like enough resistance, to me, to really be believable.

That said, this is a novella, and I understand things have to get pushed along a little more quickly to fit expected word count ranges. I suspect, largely because of the rather quick pace and the necessity to have characters accept things quickly in order to keep the plot on point, I found it a little difficult to keep up. Despite that, A SINGLE THREAD was an enjoyable read with just the right amount of creepy, and it was fun seeing a paranormal perspective in the New Adult category.
