Drama, Horror

Come Back to the Swamp by Laura Morrison


This is a short piece of fiction that packs a punch. It has an ominous atmosphere and conveys a lot of background information to complete the tale, but for me, I did not feel that sense of completion, although I should have.
We have our lead protagonist trying to save a swamp from invasive species when she encounters an odd woman. What happens next is basically the entire story. We have a total of three or four characters featuring in the book as a whole which is a rare occurrence. I cannot really say anything more except that the writing is smooth, and it did not feel like a complicated scenario, although there are magical realism feels to the main plotline. Also, it can be read by people of any age, given the simplicity of the delivery. I felt like it could even be categorized as mildly horror-based, although no one else has labelled it as such on Goodreads.
I received this book as an ARC thanks to NetGalley and the publishers, but the review is entirely based on my own reading experience.
