Review: The God of Last Moments by Alethea Kontis

Reviewed by Erica Davis
The God of Last Moments by Alethea Kontis focuses on a pessimistic character named Max, who’s dealing the recent death of his mother. A few days after her funeral, Max receives a mailed package from her, introducing him to a world of sweet, warm death.

This story definitely had me hooked from the beginning. It was well-told and the characters were unique. It was, however, a little too depressing for my tastes. I’ve read some dark stories before, and don’t have any aversion to them in general, but I felt that this story could’ve used some more optimism. It’s refreshing to see a story that isn’t predictable, but I like to feel like there’s some hope left in the end.
