3.5 stars rounded up.An interesting audio short/novella. Set just after WWI, very atmospheric, fascinating characters, unique storyline. It was all going well until the abrupt ending. WTH, Josh?

To be more exact, I felt pulled away from them the longer I read and tried to understand them.I liked Flynn in the beginning, though I resented his harsh dismissal of Julian.

Don't know why I put off reading this as long as I did. It's a wonderful story, nightmarish as it may be, it's poignant and felt real despite the paranormal aspects, even though the bad guy turned a little very much over the top in the end. I felt transported to that time and place, particularly int...
