Spitting Devil (Jonathan Stride, #5.5) - Brian Freeman This 38 page short story was ok for being written by Brian Freeman. I love Freeman's writing and thought that this book was weak for being his caliber. I thought it wrapped up a bit neatly and superficially written. I see that a number of authors will do these lil shorts before a release of a full length novel. More likely than not, they don't work and this one was no exception.
