Published on: 4/28/2015
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Maia watched for more than a millennia, waiting for a second chance at life on Earth. A hot, unforgiving desert greets her upon arrival, but her surroundings aren't her only problem. In human form, fleeting memories of a past life haunt her. Will she be whole when she rediscovers who she is, or will the reality of her existence require she make yet another sacrifice? This short story by Pavarti K Tyler is a literary twist on a classic Greek Myth.
My Rating: 4 Coffee Cups!!
Let me start off by saying that I am not usually a fan of short stories. I don't know why exactly, just never was my cup of tea. But at about 40ish pages this story left me loving it and wishing there was so much more.
This story is told through the mind of Maia. And I say through her mind rather than her POV because you follow her entire train of thought from the moment she gains consciousness to the last moments of the story. She wakes up and everything is fuzzy. Her words, her thoughts, her surroundings and you see each of her memories slowly coming back to her. Some heartbreaking and some sweet. Then you meet Jaren. A sort of recluse of his own right, who essentially becomes her savior. The story that unfolds is kind and sweet and genuine. The story also holds a stronger meaning. For me, it told a story of freedom and choice. It told of someone who made the brave decision to live life in all of it's possibilities.
"The light of his soul flashes, and I know this moment is the most real thing I’ve ever experienced. To live, to be truly present."
I truly wish there was just a little bit more to this. Mainly more to Jaren. He is a complete mystery that I'm quite sure you will join my wish to unravel.
