This was a great short story buy Alma as a filler to her "The Taker" series. I thought she went back to her dark roots in this one. It was a bit more graphic in regards to sexual situations, but thought that was right back along the lines of her first book in the series. I loved it!! Loved it more because it was 24 pages and free to boot on Smashwords.
