Strange Mercy, by Christopher R. Alonso

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

Pro: The children Lola cared for take vengeance in her name.

Con: It’s all too easy. Their spell works. Lola comes back flawlessly, and there’s no big price for it. She leads them to kill her murderous ex-husband, and that’s it.

There’s no dialogue and no characters.
