    1. The devil is in the details.Is it the Amish Apocalypse?Or an Alien Apocalypse?Or maybe a warped Christmas carol. HmmmOver the river and down the road, to the black devil machine we goThe horse goes away, he won't carry the sleigh, and the road melts all the snowOver the river and down the road, oh how the machine does glowIt swings its claws and snaps its jaws, as the dynamite we throw.Okay, so this was a devilishly interesting short story. I read it straight through in one sitting, because I wa [...]


    2. This is a neat little post-apocalyptic novella by the author of Breakdown.It traces the adventure of Aaron,Ben,Eli and Caleb as they journey to destroy the "devil" - or what's thought of as the devil in their Amish-like community.The devil is actually a large black machine of sorts (think the monolith in 2001 meets Stephen King's Gunslinger) that is suspected of shortening the life span of their community in the North.Meanwhile, Aaron must deal with the emotions of what happened to his mother: d [...]


    3. This was a quick, engaging read - I was able to plow through it in two sittings. It's a fast-paced story that is pretty true to the synopsis, interwoven with flashbacks that add substance to the plot (though occasionally jar the reader away from the action too often). I love the author's ability to take phenomena that may or may not be supernatural in nature and inject it into a reasonably ordinary setting - it adds an additional layer of depth and believability, at least for me. I've now read b [...]


    4. Not so goodI found the flashback story telling method less than successful. At no point did the different times share a connection. The ending was less than satisfying. Perhaps this was an exercise, an outline for a longer, deeper piece.


    5. This is the second time I've read this story. It's short but really enjoyable. I quite like it, and am left thinking of "the destruction" and what happened.


    6. I picked this novella up because I enjoyed Hanna's first book so much. It did not disappoint. I was hooked, beginning to end.
