A supernatural yarn with potential

This story is very early in the stages...but hoping a positive review will give the author the extra push to continue. If you like time travel, suspense and horror mixed in with a thriller/mystery....this is for you.
Hope there is more to come.

Can't wait for it to come out

This story is still in production...but it seems to have a lot of readers chopping at it and when it comes out. The teaser, is a great set up and this story seems like it is going to have something for everyone. Mysterious characters, a who done it...some steamy romance...by chance and grab the popcorn and page turner.
Can't wait.

Highly Recommended

What's not to like...Angel's, Demons,...half Angel's and Half Demons...ghost and Heaven and Hell. Throw in a mysterious book and keen dialogue and we have a hit.
If there is one complaint...is wish it would of been longer. After reading you want more.
Ms. ROBERTS, just a great job of getting the readers attention and mixes up dialogue and scenery with a poetic touch.
Do yourself a favor and check this one out!

Ms. Thames works her wintertime magic in this Noel classic. The twist from Cratchit eyes and prospective is interesting and keeps the reader engaged. A must read for those who have read her other gingerbread creativity Christmas yarns...Marley and Scrooge and at their best in this story👍👍👍

A Twist on a Classic

This was a nice twist on a classic. A what if, that keeps you guessing up to the end. A feisty Timker Bell really added to this story and keeping the pirates on their heels just added a new seasoning to this favorite yarn.

A Must Read for all on Inkitt

There has to be a way Inkitt can market this book to people who are new to their site and or publishing their first story.
There is a lot of good insight to Inkitt and how to navigate about it.
Ms. Lynn seems to have a knack of using proper phrases and solutions to this sight. Mix in some humor with interviews at the end...all there is to say is just don't put this in your reading list...but read it and take notes.

A Folklore Fantasy Treat

If you dont like these types of stories give this a try...you'll love it...if you like these stories you will really love it.
Some of the chapters are long...but it adds to the air of the story. The author does a great job with the character Skye and the development of her character...and with the backdrop of Spiral City...the author maybe on to something. Like to see how it pans out and then give a more elaborate review.

Add This Novel To Your List!

When I write reviews I try not to mention myself in it....but in this case I feel I must. I am not a fan of this genre and was recommended to read Silent Witness. It was a good recommendation. Ms. Applegryn does such a great job of bring not only the characters to life...but also the Gods and Goddesses. The timelines...break down of chapters..dialogue and atmosphere makes you feel like you are not just in it..but living it...word by word. Please do yourself a favor and just not add this Novel..but read it as soon as you can.
Thank you

A Christmas treat wrapped up in a nice present for those to read.

Have to say this is more of a Novella then a short story. There is enough yuletide magic and turns to keep the reader turning the page.
This could easily be seen in Barnes and Noble Christmas aisle. Ms. Thames works a spell of what may seem lost...but also found. With a moral of not giving up hope...one still will believe in this Holiday story.
2 Thumbs way up to this treat that is a sweet as an all day candy cane with a hint of eggnog to get you buzzed for the winter festivities at store.

A Sensual and Savory Treat

This is a great story. Ms. Abbot sticks to her M O of short and tight chapters with a cliffhanger feel to them Felt as if I was listening to Kate Bush Sensual World...while watching To Catch A Thief while in Creams White Room as I read it. You want to read it fast to get to what is happening next. But take it slow...so you can enjoy the ride.

Another Good read

I've read other Work by Ms. Abbot...and this one is close to being on par with her other stories. I wish it would of been a tad longer so the character developed could have been expanded some. But for a short story it was good.
There is a touch of Brian De Palma (misspelled) Femme fatal to it.
If you want something light with a twist with some humor tossed in it, then give this one a try.

In today's world of horror, it all seems to be about twist and blood and guts. Ms. Abbot does a good job of going old school. Her use of creaking sounds, graveyard...the go to favorite of dolls in the bedroom keeps one interested and turning the pages
It had a mix of Poe and Lovecraft feel to it
