This 48 page free book made no sense what so ever. It was well edited. There was some very mild violence. There was no ending, no plot and no cohesion. I could not figure out the purpose of this short story. I thought it might be an on going storyline or prequal, but could not find the rest of the story. Perhaps it has not been published yet. I even checked my husband's Kendle to see if if Amazon had anything, but it didn't. This was a big waste of time. There was not even enough information to assign it to a genre. AD
Good story so far
Had promise of something interesting, as I felt that eventually the disjointed chapters would come together, either in theme or as subplots. However, for me the did not. Quite disappointing, unfortunately.
