Macimanito Môswa [Short Story Review]

Genre - Horror
Year Published - 2016
Length - 12 (digital) pages
Written by Ryan Toxopeus

Rating: 4 Skulls

Plot Summary:
Hannah, a suburbanite mother of two, runs afoul of a demon-possessed moose on her drive through the wilds of Northwestern Ontario.

This story is very well written. Toxopeus provides great attention to detail and does a superb job of getting the reader to feel (the main character) Hannah's tension, etc.

My biggest issue is, as with a lot of super-shorts stories, it just ended so abruptly - way too short! Unless that is Toxopeus' intention... leaving the reader wanting more.

If you are up for a super quick read, this one is a good choice.
