Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Kaufmann (Hunt at World’s End) delivers gore, mayhem, and the occasional explosion in this novella, which is equal parts belabored metaphor and road trip from hell. Georgia Quincey is the latest in a line of dragon slayers, bound by destiny to battle the beast that has plagued her family for centuries. She’s also acquired a heroin addiction, which, paradoxically, may be the only thing keeping her alive and strong enough to meet her fate. Kaufmann weaves the two conflicts together skillfully, though with an excess of foreshadowing, until it is hard to tell where one issue begins and the other ends. The tale is fast paced and technically well crafted, but hints of a grander backstory leave the reader wanting far more than this slim volume delivers, and Georgia herself is emotionally flat and almost impossible to like. (Mar.)

    A Fun Ride

    I enjoyed this fast-paced, triumphant, dark fantasy/horror story! Sad to say, it's the first novella I've read. I look forward to finding more. It was well-rounded. The initial introduction to the heroine, the exploration of her struggles (both internal and external) and the satisfying end were all balanced and didn't feel the least bit rushed. It amazes me that that can be accomplished in such a short story. The horror elements are effective. You're given just enough of a glimpse to be curious, and left with just enough questions to keep you guessing until the end. I recommend it to fans of the genre.
