  • Edward's short story was okay. I felt it was cumbersome at some points, too obvious in others, and unsatisfying as a whole. A quick read with no 'bad' points, it was just okay.I have no gripes about his unconventional use of naming, in fact, I thought it worked very well, but I did have a problem with his heavy-handed use of 'hints' throughout the book.It became completely obvious what the 'twist' would be after repeated 'hints' as to why the family under which Waif worked under were so odd.Comp [...]


  • (I received this book as part of Greyhart Press Publishers 'read.ewpeat' offer).(This review may contain spoilers).This story sort of felt unfinished to me. I really liked the idea behind it - and I really do like fantasy works. However, I would have liked to see much more of the world - and because the story was so short, I wasn't given enough time or information about the characters to truly emphasise with them.I did like the fact that the characters were each known by their 'job titles' - it' [...]


  • A well paced short story that gradually builds its world and characters through layered details and descriptions along with some unusual stylistic choices.The decision to name characters by occupation gives the reader immediate impressions of everyone, as well as some sense of detachment, all of which adds to the atmosphere of unease and foreboding. The dark feelings and increasing tension continue as the story twists towards a resolution (which I found a bit predictable, but didn't mind).Someth [...]


  • A thoroughly enjoyable and quick read, well-paced and well-plotted. The author's choice to forego names heightens the sense of sadness and inevitability of each character's position. Scenes and people are described so deftly that you can easily imagine the place, the atmosphere, the longing for something more from each of them.


  • I didn't connect with any of the characters, not even Waif, so I wasn't invested in her fate. For my taste, there was too much world building and description given to non-vital story elements. There was also a good deal of telling. That said, I enjoyed Butler's part and it was a quick read.
