An innkeeper, who doubles as a secret bounty hunter, must make one last big score to save her inn, her daughter and her adopted granddaughter. Problem is, she's got a gang to catch, a slimy traitor who is threatening to expose her and take her inn AND she has to deal with spirits who consume you if you run, draw blood or light a fire.


My Thoughts:

Enjoyed this little read. The main story takes place in one night, with desperation and determination coming from the main character in every word Sanderson writes. And it has a happy ending.


I love it when an author can write a concise, fully fleshed story, get me invested, leave me feeling like I had a good time and does it all under 75pages. It takes skill and I for one appreciate such skill, probably just as much as I appreciate the story itself.
