Review: Shadow Hands

David Pascoe

David Pascoe at LibertyCon 26

Since I had so little time for reading this week, I settled for reviewing a short story.

David Pascoe’s tale, Shadow Hands, suffers from an unfortunate cover, but an accurate title. The mysterious hands are everywhere Melody Devereaux goes, reaching out of any shadows and in the darkness they grow bold. She sees them and lives in fear, but what they do to others is worse. Her only consolation is the music she can pull out of her Grand’pere’s violin, left to her as a child.

With her parents gone, Melody longs for the woods of her childhood, and plays in the parks of NYC, unable to escape the city, or the hands. Until one day a mysterious gift and realization finally grant her hope…

This little story is an introduction to a character and world I am hoping for much more of. Click on the cover to see more:

  1. Thank you for the review, Cedar!

    Oh, there’ll be plenty more. Next one should show up on Amazon at the end of the month. There are five more, of various lengths, to be followed by a novel that ties everything up. Should be fun.

    I agree on the cover. In my own defense (not really: bad cover is bad) that was my first attempt. And it was that or nothing else, as my brain still refuses to come up with an alternative. Plans are in motion. We’ll see what happens.
