Light a Candle For the Beast by Echo Shea

Amazon USA Amazon UK
           
   Review by Anniek

Light a Candle for the Beast is about Eden and how she took revenge at the man who hurt her sister. Eden is a very old High Priestess with lots of power. She used that power and the ability to transform into a mermaid to place a curse on Andrew. Andrew married her sister centuries ago and abused and mutilated her. Eden never got over this and took it upon herself to make him pay for what he did.

Light a Candle For the Beast is a beautiful short story which shows what pain and hate can do to a person. I loved the scenery and the strong characters that Echo Shea created. Usually I don't read short stories but sometimes you don't need more words to tell a heart gripping story. This really is one of those books you just have to read.

It is a gift if you can deliver your story this well without needing 200+ pages (although I wouldn't have minded that). It was not difficult to picture the story in my mind. Creating my own images along the way. I love it when a story can make me do that. It is perfect for when you don't have much time, but do have the craving of a book to relax with. Light a Candle for the Beast will deliver it all for you. You will have a fantastic read which will set your mind in motion and still be on time for your nightly nap.

  1. Sometimes a short story is all I have time to enjoy. Nice that this one compacted a great plot in a few pages!
