Text ê The Hanging Game Ó Helen Marshall

Sometimes a game even a sacred game can have far reaching conseuences In bear country young Skye learns just how far she is w There were rules for the hanging game This is what they were It had to be highrigging rope like I said and you had to steal it Also it had to be an ash tree Also you had to do it willingly No one could force you to play the hanging game It couldn’t be a dare or a bluff or a tease or else it wouldn’t workThis book is seriously strange and I adore it Dark and magical realism have never been so deliciously combined I've been devouring Tor shorts lately and so far they have yet to disappoint I was initially attracted to this through cover lust but then when I started reading it I couldn't stop The way it was written was perfectly engaging and familiar I remember the rope rubbing rough against my neck It was a sort of chafing feeling odd like wearing a badly knit scarf but it didn't hurt not at firstSkye is only a young girl when her and three other children decide to play the hanging game Though on this particular day in bear country the game becomes than just a game and the conseuences are absolutely horrifyingSince this read I have also become infatuated with the other works of Helen Marshall
