#2, Omega Beginnings Miniseries
by Lizzy Ford
Synopsis from Goodreads:
Short story #2 in the Omega Beginnings Miniseries ...
Mismatch hasn’t always been a statue standing guard over the Temple of Artemis. Once upon a time, thousands of years ago, he was a man who led a privileged life. Like the Greek monarchs before him, he fell victim to the family curse: he was turned to stone and forced to keep watch over the temple of a Greek god or goddess.
Out of the blue, five-year-old Alessandra breaks the spell. Mismatch seeks out the shy, young crown princess next in line to the family curse and warns her about her fate in the hopes of saving her from the living death.
He returns when Alessandra is in danger, but the powers behind those seeking her are prepared for anything.
Even the grotesque prince
Another great installment.
I enjoyed reading things from Mismatch’s point of view and I find it interesting how he can hear Alessandra calling for him. Also I like the mysteriousness of Ms. Nettles in the ending. Maybe there is something more to Alessandra’s cuddly protector.
I’m really enjoying these character introductory type short stories. We get a feeling for how they are and what their background is. It’s getting more excited for the series!
Wonderful flow to the story you get sucked in and keep turning the pages.
I’m looking forward to the next installment. Another great cliffhanger of an ending.
