CBR III Review #79: Wild Night Is Calling by J.A. Konrath, Ann Voss Peterson, Jack Kilborn
Wild Night Is Calling is an insanely short short story. I love the story but I thought I was purchasing something more along the lines of a novella, something that would take me more than a few minutes to read.
Ann Voss Peterson wrote the first half and J.A. Konrath wrote the second half. Once again Konrath co-writes a story that blends in so well with the other half that it would be almost impossible to detect that it was written by two writers.
The story follows two teenage girls who have elected to follow two boys home from a concert to continue the party. For such a short story it manages to have a few twist and turns that make this story a fun and quick read.
If I'm not careful my review will actually be longer then the short story was itself. I should probably count this as a half novel, but if that was the case Game of Thrones should count as three or four novels :)
