5th sentence, 74th page: As I rounded the corner, I stopped briefly to rub away the chill that nipped at my ears.
A young bartender with a hidden past wants out, but is the young, posh man potentially her way out?
This short story had one of my favourite settings in the entire Kisses and Curses collection. It’s a small pub in Wales, with a couple that are kind of the worst owners / bosses. Although completely expected for this setting.
The dark history of the main character, and the somewhat pensive scene helped to create an amazing mood. One that I hope is going to be even more captivating in Lailah.
The final moments of the full moon as the future was contemplated were really potent and, as someone who loves a darkness in stories, it’s a great way to end a short tale and begin a new series.
