compellingly sinister Amaisia Moon.I really enjoyed this one Muchthan I expected to, actually Blink was such a thrilling and enchanting story, bursting at the seams with imagination and color it s also a very short story, holding its own at just 12 pages Mr Poast did an amazing job not just telling us, but showing us everything this story has to offer Filled with an interesting cast of characters, there was never a dull moment I was lost in the mystical woods right beside Lance, and I experienced every twist and turn with him first hand.Though I at times found it hard to relate to Lance, I still though he was an okay character and seemed like a nice guy All of the other characters, I LOVED.As Lance explores the woods, lost to everything besides the pounding of his heart and the occasional scream he meets some of the most captivating characters I ve ever read in a short story The smart mouthing eleven year old Shane, the confused and amusing biker Nail, the intriguing Chatterbox, and of course, the wicked top hat wearing Amaisia, ringleader of all things terrible and sure to send a chill down your spine They were all characters that I longed to knowabout, but felt completely satisfied with by stories end.Mr Poast has an amazing eye for description, and just the imagination to go along with it.This story was creepy, captivating, magical, and one of a kind It goes without saying that I wish it were a full length novel If you re looking for something not at all time consuming, full of action, adventure, fantasy and thrill look no further Blink is the perfect October read that will leave you thinking about it long after you ve read the last page, and wondering just what will become of all these characters that you can t help but be fond of I

fact, if you like Alice in Wonderland dreamlike I m on drugs and trippin stories you should really check out Blink The story revolves about 17 year old Lance, who one day takes a short cut through some woods after a top hat caught his eye And then the shit hits the fan Right from the moment he walks into the woods everything seems to burst into a weird choas With every blink of an eye there are dancing trees, strange creatures, people from all around the world who also have wandered into the woods and girls from his imagination And of course also the goddess Amaisia Moon she s on the cover with the tophat and masque and everything , who sort of rules the place Lance has to find a way out of the magical woods before he s stuck there forever with no way home This story was so magnificent that I can t stop thinking about it I keep seeing the story as a movie inside my head I can clearly picture all the characters Lance, Melissa, Shane from London, Amaisia and some others Also the creatures and surroundings were amazingly described It really is like a modern Alice in Wonderland story as I said before One of the best short stories I ve read so far So that really does say something about how wonderful it was to read this I just love how Lloyd Poast described everything in such a poetic and brilliant way I would recommend this to everyone who likes anything in the fantasy genre and all the subgenres If your looking for a short story that has imagination and magic in it then you should read Blink Right from the beginning when you start reading the story you feel like you are in the story with Lance All through the book every time he blinks you are introduced to a new character or new surroundings.Throughout the story each character is described perfectly and
