Liked the writing style. Story is a bit wild, but the characters were believable.

3.5 Stars - When a world-wide disaster strikes, a virus decimates massive numbers of the population, Mexico has been annexed by the United States and is under martial law. Military forces are brought in to try to keep order, but not all are cut out for that life, and if you were able-bodied, you were enlisted, one way or the other. A former ballet dancer is physically healthy, but not emotionally equipped for what he must endure as a soldier. Can his commanding officer give him the strength he needs to continue in the Mayan jungle as they search for ancient ruins that may hold the secret to a cure?
Private Dancer by Ciar Cullen lays a detailed foundation for further novellas in this series, and has the potential for being a full blown novel on its own! As a short read, it could be overpowering at times, but perhaps that was because the end was coming soon? Ms. Cullen has built a world that is crumbling in around itself with very human and very flawed characters who are together out of need, as opposed to desire in a nightmarish situation. I would definitely have liked to have seen more story to help absorb the information provided.

While this was a GREAT read, I was just getting into it when it suddenly ended. A book does NOT consist of only 51 pages ! I would consider it a short story at most. Where is the completion of the story ? I've looked at Ciar Cullen's other works but they are M/F and not M/M so I guess I'll not know if hell gets resealed or not.Was this review helpful?
