This review is from: The Deluge of Elias (Kindle Edition)
I know this is a short story but I felt it could've possibly been fleshed out a bit more. I get the feeling it was set in a sort of post-apocalyptic world but this was never confirmed or denied, so it may not have been, it may have been the author's idea of this world if some things had been different or it may have been set in another world or time. I just felt it could've used a bit more explanation for things.
If Nicol goes on to write a full length story it would make a good prequel novella, but as a stand alone it's too confusing. As I said, I would've liked a bit more explanation, I felt a bit confused and bombarded with information that made no sense to me. Otherwise, it was a fairly entertaining and quick read, definitely potential for further stories to come from that ending.
Edit: Based on the newer tweaked release of Deluge of Elias and the knowledge that Nicol did in fact mean for this to be a prequel to a full length novel, I have changed my rating. I'm sure my confusion will be cleared up in the next book.
