Reviews: For I have Sinned – Darynda Jones + 8 – Michael Mullin

For I have Sinned by Darynda Jones
A Charley Davidson short story

Darynda Jones revisits the sexy, suspenseful world of supernatural shenanigans she created in her Grave series with For I Have Sinned.  In this Charley Davidson story, Charley helps a woman find out how she died and gives her the closure she needs to pass through to the other side.

Series: Charley Davidson #1,5, Genre: PNR/UF, Pages: 32, Published 2011 by St:Martin’s Press, Source: My own



My thoughts:
This was a short story taking place after the first book, so if you haven’t read that one you might be lost, or not.
As I never know how to review these I will just make it short: A woman falls down in Charley’s flat. Why is she dead? Charley finds out and the woman finds peace. A nice short novella between me having read book 1 and waiting to get a hold of book 2.
We also see a glimpse as Reyes and that just makes me want to read book 2 even more. I need to know. I want more.

8: The Previously Untold Story of the Previously Unknown 8th Dwarf by Michael Mullin

Written in verse, this is the previously untold story of the previously unknown 8th dwarf, named Creepy. He is banished to the basement for being different and, well, weird. Yet he plays a vital – and of course previously unknown – role in the popular tale of Snow White – whose title character is an intruder Creepy refers to as “the Maid”.

Pages: 7, Genre: Fairy-tale, Published: 2010

My thoughts:
Now this was a fun and weird short story. The 8 dwarf who the other dwarves found creepy and locked in the basement. The ones who yes is actually really creepy and who watched Snow White show up. A Snow White who sure is a bit of an idiot. Who falls for the same stunt over and over?
Fun and short is the word.
