Book review: Apocryphal of Julie by G.W. Miller II

Julie arrived at Teotihuacan, the City of the Gods, a place said to be where men went to 51mujnodkml-_sx331_bo1204203200_become immortal. Elbow deep in blood, she had held on as long as she could, her life flashing before her eyes, warning her the end was nigh, but she held on, she fought. Her dreams of the future had started at a young age, the dream inseparable from reality except for one thing, the presence of Dantelion. But those of OWL have heard this name before, as one of the fallen angels. They did all within their power to free Julie of this figure’s influence, until she learns deceit is better than torture. She flees her life, embarking on a new quest where she learns the truth of her destiny, if only she can make it in time.

A charming short tale set in post-apocalyptic times. The world has turned to ruin, zombies and horrors walk the world, and the worst is yet to come. But Julie can change the very course of the future. Apocryphal of Julie (Aquarius Ascending) is an imaginatively written, engaging read by G.W. Miller II. For a short tale you are granted great insight into the character of Julie, her troubles, hardships, and the destiny she must face. Personally I would have liked to have seen a little more descriptive writing, and more depth in some areas as this would have really enhanced the tale for me, but all in all, a gripping read.
