Karen’s Magic Review
I usually start off with a description except there isn’t one because I didn’t get it from Amazon and at the time of writing, it doesn’t appear to be for sale.
I came across it by accident and you know how every now and again you come across a little gem. Well, this is it.
I visited the author’s website and as I was reading, one of those annoying boxes dropped down and obscured my view. It invited me to join the newsletter with an offer of a free book. Being a sucker for a free book, I joined. She changes the free book, so it is a different one now.
I know of the author, have spoken to her, but never read any of her stories. They are mostly Science Fiction/Fantasy stories, books I tend to sreet away from as a rule.
On inpulse I filled in the details and was invited to download the free book. I didn’t even see the cover. It was a short read and having just finished two short reads on the run, decided to start on this one.
What a cracking story! I absolutely loved it!
It was set on a planet where people were forced to leave earth mainly because of terrorist attacks. Scientists had also discovered transportation. Now, if you’re not a fan of this genre your eyes are probably glazing over. But stop, keep reading!
The story is set in a bar and Deak is the bartender. Real people, real situations, and a message in the story that will resonate. (Deak’s Choice is currently the free book in her newsletter, so check it out here.)
Never give up hope.
Deak is in a deep depression and had let himself go, thus not seeing things as they really were. There are people who care for him, he just doesn’t recognise them. Just when we think we are going to see the last of him, something happens that changes his outlook on life.
Ah, it was just a great story, I loved it! Hope is such. great word. Without hope, where would we be?
Sign up for the newsletter, and that really isn’t a bad thing. If her newsletters are anything like her blog posts, they will be worth it.
