Short Story Review: These Deathless Bones

These Deathless Bones  by Cassandra Khaw (short story)

4 star read

Why I read:  Free short horror story

Story blurb: “A horror tale about the Witch Bride, second wife of a King, and the discord between her and her young stepson.” 

 My review

An original short horror story about the Witch Bride.  Beautifully written with hauntingly evocative phrases it reminded me of a dark fairy-tale.   It blends fantasy and reality into a captivating tale.

I loved the main character she was strong and suitably evil for a Witch Bride.  The young stepson is a horrific and chilling child.  Together you wonder which is the most evil.  An intriguing tale I hope the author writes more based on this.

 

Its a great short read for when you need a little dose of horror but only have 10 minutes or so to spare.

I’d recommend to anyone who likes:  dark fairy tales, horror, witches
