Two weeks ago, I hadn’t even heard of J.W. Elliot, by pure chance, I seen a post on Twitter that mentioned free book giveaway’s on a website called Prolific Works, downloaded one or two of his works, and subscribed to his newsletter. He sent me an email, containing a link to the audiobook for this on YouTube. I told myself I’d review every book and short story sent to me through the author’s newsletters I signed up to and here we are.

I went into this story having no idea what to expect. I didn’t bother to read the summary and decided to let the narrator take me on a journey. I’m relatively new to listening to or reading short stories and this has been by far one of the best, if not the best short stories I’ve read so far. J.W. Elliot has quite the vocabulary, the likes of which I rarely get to see when reading stories and despite the audiobook only being an hour-long, he manages to do quite a lot of world-building.

The characters in this story are compelling and I find myself genuinely interested in buying the 7 books in the series as well as the short collection of stories. I’d have done so already if I could afford it.

The Kindle story is 1$ and the audiobook is less than 5$. What do you really have to lose? I appreciate authors who do short introductory stories for their series. Getting into a series can be a commitment, especially if it’s ongoing and this is a great way to find out if a new series is for you.
