Absolutely terrific short story Yes it was unfortunately very short, but in perfect keeping with what I like to think of as the requirements for a good short story Complex characters a feat and a half in a short story, as there is little time to establish characters A good setting this particular short story benefits from the setting established in The Girl With Ghost Eyes, but its features are nonetheless developed further here A developed conflict, plot, and climax Check, check and check again [...]
A short story adventure into netherworld of Chinese mythology with Xian Li Lin.Several weeks after the events of The Girl With Ghost Eyes , Xian Li Lin is assigned to perform an exorcism at a nearby factory However, upon Li Lin s initial investigation she finds something very strange about the ghost responsible for terrifying the Chinese laborers I totally devoured this 20 page short story in a single reading Everything I loved about The Girl With Ghost Eyes managed to fit in a condensed format [...]

A short story and very well written You have to be careful what you brag about, it might give people ideas Li lin is sent to exorcise a cigar factory Quick paced and action packed, her quick think saves any workers from getting hurt.
Just as awesome as the book, if much shorter.
A good little story to follow The Girl With Ghost Eyes A point off for mixing tenses, lack of clarity, and too much explanation which detracted from the flow of the story.
