Click here to read Claytemple's newest story, The Quality of Mercy by G.L. McDorman.
Let us know what you thought of the Barrow School novella The Lion that Stalks by Night.
Just finished the tale. It was hard to put it away when duty called (eating, sleeping, getting the kids from school, you know the stuff). I especially liked the mood of the story with the attention to details and ambiance descriptions. The doings and relationships between the girls are worked out well. The elaboration of the ending maybe was a bit too short to my taste, and - typically European I think - I don't like smooth happy endings that much; although there are enough open endings to think of some impending doom, like the evil Blythe who maybe cooperated with the Beast, or the Austin girls taking revenge with another lurking secret in the crypts... Anyway, I really enjoyed reading it. I surely will read The Quality of Mercy soon.
I'm on page 55 and I think I just figured it out.
