Weekly Short: Unspeakable by S. R. Johannes

Since I had read the two books in the Nature of Grace series by S. R. Johannes, I thought I should read Unspeakable. Especially since it was free at Smashwords.

Have you ever wondered what another character was thinking when reading a first person novel? I sometimes do. I read Midnoght Sun on Stephenie Meyer's website because I was curious to Edward's point of view. In the same sense, S. R. Johannes gives readers a glimpse into another character's mind in this short story.

Unspeakable is the first time Mo meets Grace. It from Mo's point of view. The other two books in the series are told from Grace's point of view.

As a story of its own, it was okay. I don't think it really added anything to the series. And I preferred the scene from Grace's point of view better. It didn't endear the character of Mo to me, actually I think being in his head in someways detracted. However, as a marketing tool it was excellent. The story ends on a cliffhanger and if you haven't read Untraceable, you would want to pick it up just to find out what happens next.
