From the first two paragraphs, I knew I was going to like this short story. It intrigued and hooked me from the very beginning. It's written in a style that is enthralling and mysterious. You don't know where the writer is about to take you. I could say for sure, from reading the first page, I knew it was going to be a crazy ride.
I don't know if it is a good thing or a bad thing that I could completely relate to the character in the story, Matthew. "He was a troubled soul who bore not just psychological scars, but physical scars..." Matthew and I differ in one major way, I can only dream of possessing the abilities or powers he has.
Death defines not only Matthew, but this story as well.
"So much for going down fighting."
A great short story with amazing potential for a bestselling novel. I highly recommend this to anyone who has been intrigued by death. Absolutely a 5/5.
