Rating 5– RECOMMENDED READ
Scraggy hangs the dead, with his supernaturally-touched noose helping him judge who deserves to die at his hand. When the rope glows more fervently than it ever has before, Scraggy knows his next appointment is something different. When he looks into the eyes of his victim, he discovers something he never expected.
I wasn’t sure what I was expecting when I started reading this short story. The writing is amazing–instantly captivating, utterly mesmerizing, and one-hundred-percent haunting.
I hardly ever give Recommended Reads. This story is one of the most deserving I think I’ve ever given!
