Ash’s life is hard. She separates herself from parents who don’t care for her and starts a new life on a small farm in Corby with her dogs. When something kills some of her livestock, she prepares to fend off the beast but then she meets Magnus. Just as her attraction for him builds she finds that he may just be the beast that savaged her animals.
This is an unusual paranormal story, and it teaches us a little about the town of Corby and the paranormal world that Roberts has created. The characters are strong even for such a small word count and it definitely got me interested enough to read more of Roberts’ work.
