Number of pages: 6

Source: Received for review – this review is my honest opinion.

Goodreads synopsis:

A master of the Dark Arts searches for his prized experiment. A commoner woman with a torn past seeks a new life. The story of death’s love and life’s fate, “Present Company” chronicles events preceding R.M. Prioleau’s novella, “The Necromancer’s Apprentice.”


Having never really read much flash fiction in my life, I can not compare it to many. However, what I can tell is that I thought what I read was a pretty good story.

To be honest, I found it to be a little on th e short side. Everything happened so fast that I was kind of left like what?.i would love to see this extended because I think it holds potential for a great story.

I really liked what I read because I found it to be surprisingly engrossing.i love this author’s short stories and I would definitely recommend you to check them out if you like novellas and short stories/flash fiction.

2.5/5 stars!

  1. I find I often feel like short stories/novellas could have been longer. I usually end up really liking the story, and wishing that the author could have fleshed it out a bit more so that I could have had more of the story to read.
    I have The Necromancer’s Apprentice for review, so I might end up reading this one one day 😀

      The Necromancer’s Apprentice was a lot better but I had some issues with it. I know what you mean, there are loads of stories that would have been amazing longer.
