A fantasy short story of love and loss. For the last four years, Misty’s husband, Skye, has given her silver rings. But as their lives change, she learns that the rings are more than she once believed.
Five Silver Rings is an incredible short story for what only felt like 15 pages at most. I expected this to be good based on how much I enjoyed Zack’s Threadlight series, and as I expected, I was not disappointed. At first I thought this was going to be a horror story, because it sure did feel as if that’s what I was getting myself into with a creature that felt like it came from Silent Hill or Resident Evil. But instead what I got was a story about love and sacrifice mixed with a tinge of horror. I sure do hope that this short story possibly turns into a bit of a prequel for his next series because this was beautiful and I want to find out a lot more about this creature.
“Balance. There must be balance. Your lives are not equal. Fate cannot be stopped.”
Also, the title had me constantly signing Silver Wings by the Country music legend, Merle Haggard, and still am signing it. What I found more fascinating were the parallels in the song and that story. Silver Wings is an emotional song of watching someone leave and the struggle of letting them go. It is crazy that I made the connection based on the title and after reading felt like the connection was even bigger, purposeful or not.
