Widow’s Lake by Michael Monroe
I downloaded this novella when it was free without hearing much about it. I thought I’d just read one paragraph to get an understanding of the book, and then continue reading another title I was in the middle of. Well, I was hooked by Monroe’s poetic prose and the world he created with magic users called “dancers,” and the story of an assassin vs. his prey. It seemed Monroe took his inspiration for the setting from feudal Japan. Although I figured out rather early where the plot would lead me, I enjoyed every moment of it, as Monroe’s guided me along with a deft pen and was able to stir emotions within me. Highly recommended!
