Equally the story really never gets exciting. I love novellas which have a twist, or an interesting character or something that makes me want to read more. This one didn't do those things for me. This is effectively a ghost story, the kind you're told over a campfire to freak you out, but with less of the creepiness of a really good one.
Edie is driving along a road, Red Run, searching for the ghost who killed her brother. And six others. Her interactions with the ghost are fairly exciting. I wanted to know why the ghost was killing, how the ghost himself was killed and how she planned to kill a dead guy! So that was a great hook. Unfortunately the ending was a little flat and, had this been a full length story, I'd have put it down.
Nevertheless, this is a nice teaser for those that like paranormal stories. It works better as part of the anthology it also resides in, Enthralled:Paranormal Diversions. I hope that people will still take a look at this authors other work, as this probably isn't her finest and would most likely have put me off if it had been my first Garcia book.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
This next bit doesn't color my review, but I feel the need to mention the fact that I bought this on Amazon - for my Kindle - and nowhere on the Amazon listing is it indicated that the story was previously published in the collection "Enthralled: Paranormal Diversions" - a collection which I purchased in hardcover upon its original 2011 publication, but had not yet read. I just happened to pull it off the shelf immediately after reading "Red Run", while looking for more short stories, only to roll my eyes at the ToC when, lo and behold, I saw "Red Run" there.
So basically, I paid for this so-so story twice. It's not like I paid a lot, but I feel kind of PO'd that the Amazon listing trades on the impression that it's an e-Exclusive. I'm very happy to have this story in Enthralled; it actually sits more comfortably in that context than it does as a Kindle Single.
This author never disappoints me, I've read every single Beautiful Creatures book. Amazing!! I'd deff recommend this to my friends.
