I found this short story to be unique and a thrill to read from start to finish!


Rating: 4/5

I received a free copy of Two Turtle Doves through Blackthorn Book Tours for their November Quick Bites in exchange for an honest review. Thank you for this opportunity!


This was an intense 26 pages. Right from the start, we’re thrown into the fire. We’re introduced to a depressed teenager who’s fed up with being bullied and on his way to commit suicide when he comes across a guitar. Woah!


This was an intense 26 pages... Those first initial paragraphs completely captivated me.

Those first initial paragraphs completely captivated me. I wanted to know what would happen next. And what I saw shocked me even more than those opening sentences. This book gets dark quickly. And the ending was just as intense.

However, this book could be triggering for some. So please keep that in mind.
