Karen’s Magic Review

 

This story had a gripping storyline and was also poignant and sad. Told in the first person by Katie, who is in an abusive relationship. At first, I wondered why she didn’t just leave but of course, it’s not that easy. The psychological damage leaves her with no self-worth, a fear of being found and dragged back to face the consequences.

The story was well told, gripping and poignant and as I said, very sad. There is also an unexpected paranormal twist, although I’m not sure if you can even call it that. Just something unexplained and interesting and I really enjoyed it because it took the story somewhere else. Clever. I liked that.

I’m glad it had a happy ending although, being the romantic I am,  I would like to have seen Katie swept off her feet or rescued by someone very dashing. I guess though, this was a tell it as it is story, and things like that rarely happen in real life. It wouldn’t have hurt, and had she I would have enjoyed it all the more.
