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

Review: 2019.693 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: There’s plenty of tension and excitement, and lots of twists in the plot.

Con: It doesn’t make a lot of sense that Dagn follows Ulti even though she needs to open the gates in mere minutes. Why not just kill her and hide the body? It only would have needed to stay hidden for an hour or so.

Dagn has a 21st-Century sentimentality about dogs that jars with her role as guard and killer.
