Book Description (via Goodreads): Emma seemed an ordinary girl, but she had secrets. Not only did she have the ability to transform into a winged monster, she was also wanted for murder.
After a series of unlikely events, she finds herself on the run from London’s most revered detective with only a circus filled with paranormal misfits to keep her company.
Emma must find her way to freedom, but will she be able to do what is necessary to leave her past behind once and for all?
I have received this book in exchange for an honest review. I have given Unforgivables by Tabi Slick four out of five stars ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
I’m pretty dubious whenever it comes to reading short stories because I always think how are authors able to write up a detailed story which the audience will enjoy and grasp. Well I can definitely say that it worked with this short story that Tabi Slick created.
Unforgivables managed to capture my attention from the first couple of pages after a horrific event happens. There is a great use of descriptive and detailed writing which drew me into this story. There are a handful of characters that we learn about but cannot necessarily form a connection on a deeper level with due to the shortness of the story. I thought the fast pace of the events that unravel worked really well as it soon became a page turning book which I found very difficult to put down at times.
I don’t want to give too much away as it is a short story and I think this book deserves to be picked up and read instead of giving away too much. This is a Tompkins School novella and hope to pick up the other books of the series as I really enjoyed this novella and can imagine that the rest of the series is just my cup of tea too. I really enjoyed the story line and the fact that this book ends on a couple of cliffhangers, I am hopeful that we will read about Emma again and find out what happens. I would definitely recommend this book to fans of fantasy, mystery and paranormal elements.
