Love is for losers.
​Jack doesn’t care about anything except music. All she wants to do is find a decent gig, stand by the speakers and let the bass roll through her. It’s the only reason she gets out of bed.

Until she meets Winta. In the space of a second, everything is different. Winta knows what she wants and for one night, what she wants is Jack. It feels like the start of forever.

Then Winta disappears and Jack faces a choice: should she go back to her life, or track down the only girl who can change it beyond recognition?

​One thing’s certain: Jack has no idea what she’s getting herself into.

Killian’s Dead is a short story prequel to Josie Jaffrey’s Seekers series.


Final Judgment: 5 Stars out of 5

Since this is a short story, I will not do a First Chapter Challenge.

First things first: Jack is a badass. She knows what she wants and she’s not afraid to go after it.

In this short story prequel to Jaffrey’s Seekers series, we get to see Jack as a 18-year-old human. Her life isn’t great, she loves music, and she’s bisexual. Through this story, we follow her as she meets her first love and does anything and everything to keep her.

The writing is amazing. Jack’s wit has me laughing at every other page and the interactions between characters keeps me turning the pages quicker and quicker. In fact, I believe I read this sub-50-pages in less than a half hour.

And it ends on a great note! Makes you need to keep reading the series so you know what happens next. That’s the real gem here; I have to know what’s going to happen.

Super short review here, but main takeaway: GREAT story! If you’re looking for vampires, they’re not really mentioned much in this prequel, but we’re leading up to it 😀
