I rarely read short stories but when I do, I want it to be as enthralling as a full length novel, especially one in the paranormal genre.
And The Sea Called Her Name was definitely creepy! From start to finish I was intrigued and wanted to know what was going on with Delphi. The story had a dark appeal, not to mention the writing was superb. I liked how even though 15,000 words, so much was given and I got to understand Jason and his situation. He never really wanted the things his parents wanted for him, but sadly he ended up in the fishing business while still chasing his dream.
Throughout everything, Jason found comfort in the love between him and his wife, Delphi. It was such a beautiful and convincing love that I rooted for them and even felt heartbroken in the end after what happened. Being that it is a short story, I can't give too much without spoiling everything. I'll conclude with this, haunting story that's wonderfully written. I could envision every scene based on the fantastic descriptions. This is my first time reading Hart's words and I'm now yearning for more.
