Short story review: Killian’s Dead by Josie Jaffrey

Thanks to the author for providing me with a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own.

Title: Killian’s Dead (Seekers, #0.5)

Author: Josie Jaffrey

Purchase: Amazon


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 things’ certain: Jack has no idea what she’s getting herself into. 

Rating: 5 / 5 stars

I usually never read short stories (or prequels) but this book came into my mail I just had to pick it up. Plus it’s super short so I finished it super quickly.

This is the prequel to Josie Jaffrey’s Seeker’s series, first book being May Day that I’ve recently done a review on. It’s a series about a vampire called Jack who along with her friends and companions has to solve a murder mystery of a man killed by a vampire. If you’re interesting about hearing more about the book and my opinions please check out my review. This prequel tells a story about how Jack became a vampire (and how she first met Killian).

This was such an interesting story and I love how things turned out. I love that Jack never actually realized what Winta actually is because even after she was turned nobody told her the truth. Only when they throw her the blood bag do you realize what actually happened.

This whole story was super fun and something different in the paranormal genre. I think I like the short story even more than the actual book because it just captures you into the whole story and makes you want to read more.

I think this is a great introduction to the series and even though I’ve read the first book before the prequel, I think this would be even more interesting to someone who hasn’t read it yet.

Plus, both the prequel and the series are perfect for upcoming Halloween season because they have this eerie feeling to them. P.S. Isn’t that cover soo bad-ass!!

Happy reading!
