Esther is getting old. No, she is old. Aging with every blink, with every breath.
After a life full of power and purpose, she is met with the harsh reality that she is now obsolete, and her fragile moments are short. On the eve of the last night in the city she has called home for years, Esther and her lover Jacob share their fears and their romance for this world over one last meal, as they wait in fearful unrest for what is coming.
I receieved this book from the author to give an honest review:
Let me just say the cover is SWEET! It just gives me chills looking at it. :D
Very interesting short read.
Pretty much Music Box is a bit of a creepy short story.
Music Box seems to be about Esther who is obsessed with how she looks, and and is enraged with Rider who is going to take everything away. While she stares into a mirror and starts watching herself just deteriorate, she goes back through her memories of her and Jacob together. The love that they have felt. It seems as though over time beauty finally fades away and there is nothing you can do about it. Jacob her love on the other hand is trying to get her to accept her fate of what is to become.
I was a bit confused at the end, but through out it all I truly enjoyed reading this story. I like Estevan Vega's writing style and can not wait to read more books by him.
