Shannon McDermott has such a way with words. These stories are told in poetic language that is just breathtaking at times. Her descriptions of colors, art, and people are so vivid I felt like I was there.

The plot kept me on the edge of my seat. I was surprised by the ending and liked it. That does not happen often. The creativity and the twists and turns of the plot were brilliant. The story never dragged or felt rushed, which is hard to find in novellas.

The characters were well developed and understandable. Although I was surprised by some of the things that happened and the decisions some of the characters made, it was in keeping with the characters.

I highly recommend this novella to those who love mild sci-fi, lyrical language, and a well told story with surprising twists.

I received this book from the author in exchange for my honest review. I was under no obligation to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are entirely my own.
