"Merry Christmas" Audio-Review!
I was attracted to this ebook, NIght's Curse by Justin Sloan, all because of the cover. It's bright, eye-catching and just pretty! I loved it- especially the mystical wolf along the character's shoulder. It just looked like something I wanted to read, YA or not.
This free short, introductory story was about a young girl who'd been on a camping trip shortly before Christmas. She gets attacked by something- wolf, bear or what have you, and returns home. While home with her family, enjoying the holiday, she wakes on Christmas morn to a massacre, and that's all I can say. Anything else will give away the story and I mean that with all honesty. It was so fast and rushed, I was rather disappointed. I think I got a few chapters in to the ebook, when I discovered there was whisper-sync for a buck and change. I got it to listen while working out and man- that was a dollar I coulda kept!
I don't knock authors, because it takes a great deal of courage to put a book on a shelf- digital or physical, but this book was not written well. It was rushed, giving the story an elementary feel. It was as if Sloan was in a rush to get to the good stuff, skipping all the necessary dialogue, emotion and filler that would have allowed me to develop an attachment with the main character. Sad to say, it left me uninterested and fussing about my lost dollar!
He tried though. I always check reviews and surprisingly, he received 4 & 5-stars for this story! It had to have been shared by his friends... Maybe his other books are better, but when it comes to YA, you either have me or you don't. Sorry Sloan. I'm on to the next read! 📚
