Firefly by Jen Minkman--A Review

Welcome to my annual Twenty-five days of Christmas blog.  I will post 25 Christmas reads I have read throughout the year for your viewing pleasure.   Hopefully you might something you would like to read from these postings.   And I truly hope you enjoy these reviews as much as I have enjoyed reading these Christmas stories.


As decreed by the State, the Citizens of Ebrus are not allowed to:

Visit the ocean surrounding the Walled City. 
Ignore curfew and stay out after seven.
Call in sick more than three times a year.

A short, dystopian story about the spirit of Christmas.


A dystopian Christmas tale....a very unique concept in my humble opinion. The story was only 30 pages long, but it was a refreshing tale and full of hope; just like Christmas. Dystopians are bleak reads where people have been over governed and basic freedoms are a thing of the past. However, as in every historical event of atrocity, there remains a flicker of hope and the rumor of a better tomorrow.

I enjoy Minkman's stories as she has a very thought provoking way of telling them. I find them refreshing and enjoyable. Firefly was no exception.

For a quick and satisfying story, Firefly may be just right for you.  I rated this read  four (4) Winks!

Thanks for stopping by!
