5th sentence, 74th page: I have been a fool.
Agent of Death, Maddy Black, is sent on a mission by her many-greats grandfather, Lucifer,to retrieve the mythical Red Shoes. These shoes will force the person wearing them to dance non-stop. They are currently in the possession of Sammy Blue, ambassador for Maddy’s newest foe, faerie Queen Amarantha.
The writing techniques utilised throughout this short story were nothing short of phenomenal. And that doesn’t even begin to describe the storyline and phenomenal characters that are splashed across the pages with a brilliant vividity. Although I haven’t (yet) had the privilege of reading the rest of the series, this short provided a great gateway into the series and the very sassy character of Maddy.
I’m completely in love with the characterisation and creation of Beezle. He is like a hyperactive, supernatural, talking puppy with attitude.
Sassy characters and incredible supernatural powers, this story has it all and I can’t wait until my version of Black Wings arrives!
