The Spear Of Destiny by M.E. Brines
This is a short story of 32 pages and every single one of this is packed with a punch. I was amazed at what the author managed to do with his characters and the story line in such a limited space.
Character development, world building, this short had it all.
I wish the author would have added another page from the moment where the final confrontation starts up though. It would have made the last few pages a bit less hurried. That said. The pace in the story itself until that point was perfect.
I really loved this short.
