Brilliant Short Story

Richard A. Kirk renders an engaging short story about confronting the past. Lumsden Moss undergoes a pilgrimage to find the culprit of the violent crime of his past. Over approximately 2 hours Richard A. Kirk and Jake Ruddle take you on a slow and methodical journey through a dark and mystical world with plenty of interesting characters.

The narrator (Jake Ruddle) does a fantastic job of bringing this story to life with good pacing and rhythm. Characters' voices are distinguishable without being over the top (Something that can very easily ruin a book for me). Ruddle's voice is relaxing allowing you the listener to become fully immersed in the story.

Overall it was a great short listen however I found the ending slightly disappointing thus:
Overall: 4/5
Performance: 5/5
Story: 4/5
