The Root Cellar, by Maria Haskins

★★★☆☆ Average

(Fantasy Horror) Amadine has come back from the dead to try to rescue her little brother before her evil Grandma comes back and kills her again. (1,956 words; Time: 06m)

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

Pro: Amadine finds her arm, which is holding Grandma’s glasses, which finally let her find her brother and other of grandma’s victims. Success (if you can call it that) is at least possible.

Presumably the reason she didn’t simply die was the spell her father put on her and her brother protecting them from anything under the sky.

Con: We end with her turned into a zombie trying to raise her brother, presumably to be a zombie too, and with Grandma about to break down the door. Not exactly a happy ending.
