Icarus MAG

By Edwin Young, Hemet, CA

I enjoyed the short story “Icarus” by Caitlin M. with its many gems hidden beneath the surface, ready to be discovered.

The first amazing part lies in the character’s background: wings cut off, beaten, and left in a ditch to die, she manages to survive until someone finds her. Second, she, by the power of reading, is transported to a magical land with characters much like her – the story of Icarus and his father Daedalus. The best part, however, is not that she is different – it is the fact that she stands up for her beliefs and does not recant.

Thank you, Caitlin, for writing such a good piece.
