Series: Short story in Badlands world
Recommendation: Oh yes, gives you a glimpse at the hard person Ever is and just might make you curious to try the enovella with Ever fighting her way through it.
In the Badlands, nothing is simple -- not even the death of a parent. I hope you enjoy this little glimpse into Ever's life before she finds her way aboard the Dark Hawk.
Ever paced the length of her mother's rooms, a faint cloud of dust from her clothes following in her wake.
My Thoughts and Summary:
Ever returns home at her mothers request to learn the bad news of her fathers death, but Ever might have a different view on it, or is it just the way she deals...
This is a glimpse at Everette while she learns her working father died. We see the hard woman she is and what her job is. There is a little history here as well.
I think I could like this woman, Ever. I need to read Badlands to know more of what it is she does. I want to see this world: troops of woman, criminals sent across borders, and having to hunt the criminals.
This short story does make me curious about the world, and a strong, hard character I think I could read and like.
If you are curious as well, take a few moments to read this free read found on the author's site. You too might find yourself diving into the enovella Badlands as I did after reading this.
Seleste deLaney has Just a Man for free to read. As well as other short stories in another world including vampires, if you are curious to sample A Blood Kissed series short story.
**I read this quick short story for my own enjoyment.
