My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A young girl named Jesse gets way more than she bargained for when she and a friend go out for the night. This is a hard review for me to write, as I fear I’ll be giving away too much of the story if I go in-depth with my thoughts. It’s a 22-page short story with an ending I enjoyed immensely, so it’s perfect for those times when you want to read, but don’t have time to get into a longer work.
The lead character is great, and I love the way she deals with the things going on around her. She shows real spunk and strength, something that is always nice to see. Meade builds the story up at a nice pace full of great descriptive prose that draws you in to the characters and their world before hitting you hard with suspense and action. I definitely recommend this one to anyone looking for a great read.
Jesse senses something off about the nightclub. She wants to leave, but her best friend, Tasha, is determined to have a night to remember. There’s no way Tasha’s turning down an invite to the VIP section.
Against Jesse’s better judgement, she follows Tasha up the ivory staircase to the mysterious room above. The whiskey and champagne are flowing, and pretty soon the blood will be too.
