Book Review: Kaijin by Devon Henry

download (58)

Title: Kaijin
Author: Devon Henry
Genre: Short Fiction
Release Date: July 29th, 2014
Rating: 5/5 Stars

Short story collections are tricky for me to read, because I usually find only a few gems in them, having to shuffle through those which I did not connect with, and then lacking the motivation to go on, and read through the rest. This was not the case with Devon Martin’s self-published work Kaijin. Written mostly in first person present tense (with the exception of one story), this collection stays true to its theme of women who do not take things as they are, but overcome, or destroy those in their way. Empowering, fantastical stories that do not take themselves too seriously, are carefully constructed in this collection and are a worthy read, if you are looking for bite size morsels of entertainment.
I am looking forward to seeing this Author evolve from these shorter stories to full length work, and will keep my eye out for any of her future projects. If you like out of the ordinary short stories, from a women’s perspective, read this book.
Kaijin is available in Amazon in Kindle Format, on Kindle Unlimited and as in  Paperback Format.
