Mini-Review (click to view--possible spoilers)

Pro: The setting is vividly described, and it gradually grows more horrible with each paragraph.

Con: The ending leaves us confused. What really happened? Were the soldiers friends or enemies or simply no longer necessary? Or do they just come from time to time and harvest more soldiers?

  1. Too vague. I felt like the Blank was coming out of the story and taking me over too.
