Review: "The Red Man" by Anna Reith

The Red Man by Anna Reith, purchased on my own from Smashwords.

Description: An archaeological dig unearths an ancient Celtic secret that should have stayed buried.

Review: We hit another one of those books that has lots of raves and then... my opinion. I just didn't like it that much. The idea was interesting, and I liked the history she chose to use, but I found the story far from riveting and like... 90% of it was Tell. Now, in a short story, that's hard to avoid. In First Person, it's also hard to avoid, but it felt like the entire thing was just Telling me. I want to be Shown a little more than that.

I'm afraid I can only give this a 2.5 Fireballs, but it seems other people enjoyed it far more and I wish everyone to like it better than I did.
