“By the pricking of my thumbs, Something wicked this way comes…” ran through Jenna’s mind, another remnant of her former life. Now the graveyard was the safest place. Evil openly roamed the streets and it was coming for her.
Jenna blinked the sweat out of her eyes and took a deep breath. She swayed with exhaustion. Angels, symbols of all things God and good, adornments of the dead, swam in and out of Jenna’s clouded vision. She placed a scarred hand on the peaceful, cold stone markers, embellished with the names of forgotten loved ones. Nowadays, loved ones wanted to come back from the grave and claw your face off, devour your insides.
Jenna wanted to lie down and give up. She was tired and had lost everyone she knew. Hair lank and greasy, mud splattered clothing, old and mismatched. Instead of admitting defeat, she forced herself to stay alert, pushing matted, raven hair out of her eyes with a dirty hand. Jenna could not remember a time in her recent history where she felt clean or had a moment in which she was not fighting to stay alive. Looking around the darkened landscape, she wanted to live. She shoved to her feet once again.
What an entertaining read!!! I knocked this little gem out in two days. Really two days with a couple hours of reading each. It was just a nice and easy read. I told my husband that I was almost done with the book and I didn't even remember reading so much of it because it just flew buy. I was sad to see Jenna and Caleb end their story.I hope there will be more.
The authors style was so simple and easy.everything flowed nicely. This was a different look at the whole vampire story as well which I loved. The whole end if the world thing. Great.
What I would have liked more of its the scene endings. They would just stop and sometimes it felt abrupt. Maybe it's cause I wanted more. Either way that issue want enough to deter from the story lines or the book.
Well done on this little gem. Thank you for writing an easy read that kept my attention.
Solid four stars.
