"Sins of Violence", by J.F. Penn

Book #2, in the Sin series

This 30 pages short story sends us deep in the post-apocalyptic world in the city of Dis where the Minotaur lives and where rituals are performed. This was part 2 in a contest that ran on Kobo some time back. Key to cracking the code laid beyond the book….although I discovered this author too late to play the game I couldn’t resist giving this tiny series a go.

Not really my type of story but it is so well-written that after a few pages I was drawn into it, yes even with its spookiness and weird happenings. Ms. Penn is at her best writing stories with supernatural topics, religious events, ancient myths, psychology twists to them.

This is the perfect book to tackle when time isn’t on your side….at the time of this post it was still available free at Kobo.

Stay tuned for my thoughts on book #3 “Sins of Treachery”
