I downloaded this as part of a free promotion. I have never spoken with Thea Atkinson but O.M.G. I so want to. Seriously, I'm like all fan girl crushed out on her now. I might have to stalk. This short story is so good, creepy, beautiful, and epic there aren't even words.

I can't really give you a synopsis beyond what's above because the piece is quite short, but every second of it is fulfilling. Atkinson's use of language is perfection and her imagery, both religious and profane, is exquisite.

I have added her to my next book buying round if I ever make any money because I would be thrilled to read anything else by her after this great little piece. As usual, I don't really recommend buying short stories because full length novels are only $0.99. But this one might just be worth it. If you have a taste for something short this is the one to get. It's fantastically crafted and is exactly the length this particular story is meant to be.
