Admittedly, this is a short story. But it gave me a taste of the series it is part of and of the author's voice and writing. And I am very interested in reading the series now. I think I will wait and knock out some of my reading challenges for 2016 first before diving into this series. The best way to describe this book and series is contemporary fantasy meets post-apocalyptic with a splash of paranormal. 4 stars for introducing me to a new series.
