Short Story Saturday was created by Lauren at 365 Days of Reading. I can’t guarantee that I’ll post a review every Saturday but I will post one as often as I can!
I am currently reading Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions.
Short Story: Red Run
Author: Kami Garcia
Anthology: Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions
Short stories are almost always too short for me to feel like I’ve connected with the characters but that was not the case at all with Red Run by Kami Garcia. I was immediately hooked by Edie’s story and I felt like I really understood her, even though readers don’t get a ton of information about her background. You get just enough to like her and want to see her succeed in her goal of avenging her brother.
The ghost part of the story was done really well. This story was written before Unbreakable yet it shares a lot of the same qualities. It’s creepy yet not overdone. It reminded me a lot of the early seasons of Supernatural and I loved that about it. Also, the ending was just perfect.
Overall, I give Red Run 5 stars. It’s a fabulous short story.
