really liked it

This dark little gem of a novelette is Hughes's debut and well worth your time. A little girl named Blue, a crow, and a snail set off upon the grim task of pleasing an angel, but angels are fickle and wicked and not always what they seem. Then again, neither is Blue.

Hughes shows a promising command of what makes a story dark. She never steps over the edge into needless gore, but combines mood and imagery to render a spooky tale most suitable for a dark and stormy night. I enjoyed it and finished it in a day. You will too.
