Day 3- Story # 3
Alice, Last of the Beating Hearts by David Turnbull
Story number three from this collection was 'Alice, Last of the Beating Hearts' by David Turnbull. In this Alice tale, machines have taken Alice's mother from her and taken over her world. Now, ruled by an elusive mechanical Queen, Alice relies on her android helper, Hatter, to help keep her alive.
Rife with tension and action, I was riveted through the entirety of this story. I look forward to reading more from this author.
