Would you be willing to pay the price for forbidden knowledge? The Price is author Lily Hammer’s riveting Dark Fantasy short set in her The One-Horned Heretic universe, and one that had me hooked from the first page. A concise, self-contained tale of the dangers of unearthing what’s meant to remain hidden, this story packs a surprisingly strong punch. Readers are dropped into a world in motion, but there’s plenty of time to get your feet firmly planted on the ground before the race for answers truly begins. Since this book clocks in at 27 pages, I’ll keep my review short and sweet, because this is one that’s better experienced than analyzed. I urge you to give it the attention it deserves.
