Some witches curse, others are cursed. And sometimes, the cursed want revenge.
This short story was previously published in Spellbinding: An Anthology of Magic (2019).
Even though this short story is only 24 pages, it packs a punch. And starts with murder. THE MAN AND THE CROW follows two warlocks who seek revenge after enduring a curse for half a millennium. It’s about love, loyalty, and retribution. I can’t say too much without giving away the entire story. But despite its length, I became invested enough in the characters to wish for a full length backstory. Either that or a forward-looking tale. The writing style flows well and is descriptive enough to move the reader along, but isn’t overly so. And it’s LGBTQ+, for those seeking this representation. This short story is perfect for those who enjoy anything witchy, or want to take a break from a full length novel.
