Review of Josh Reynolds, “The Waters So Dark”, Broadswords and Blasters 1 (2017): 67-77 — Purchase Here. Reviewed by Yana Shepard.
Let me first state that this story was written well and I took no issue with it other than the religious themes. It wasn’t offensive, it’s just I’m not a fan of most religious themes. Again, written well, just not my cup of tea. But if you don’t mind, then this may be a story for you.
Without spoiling too much, there was a nifty creature that I really dug its description.
I enjoyed the ending. It was not what I was expecting.
If you like spiritual monks fighting scary monsters, this may be a tale for you.
