Della thinks she sees her dead cousin run into an alley. Rather than run the other way, she investigates. What investigation ever had a good ending that began with the sighting of a supposedly dead relative running into a dark alley? Exactly. Now Della has big problems.
I liked this short story. It was a fresh take on the genre. I liked the inner turmoil of Della’s character. Finally someone who doesn’t see the glamour of vampires. There was a lot of character development packed into this short story without it being overwhelming. I felt I really got to know Della and I cared what happened to her.
The author’s style is easy to get lost in and just enjoy the story. I recommend this short story and will be looking for more from this author and what happens next for Della.
