Author:  Jeff Chapman
Category: Historical Fiction, Fantasy, Horror, Thriller, Fairy Tale, Short Story
Suitable for: Teens+
My Rating: 5 Stars
Format Read for Review: Kindle
Pages: Roughly 20 pages, short story.

Description: Mircalla envies her sister, Carmilla when Carmilla manages to steal away the object of her unrequited love. Her jealously drives her mad and her devious schemes take a dark magical twist.

In Short: This is a fun and quick read and an absolutely crazy story. It incorporates a mix of genres including historical fiction, horror, and fantasy.

Pros: This book is well written and very entertaining. Like many of Jeff Chapman's stories you know something crazy is bound to happen in the end but you never know what exactly. The plot takes surprising twists, I loved the story! Mircalla is so desperate to get the man she wants despite his lack of interest in her and his nuptials with her sister. Her desperation and creativity lead her to do outrageous things all with the goal of making him her husband.

Cons: I have no issues with this book.

Parent's Guide: Overall clean book.
