About the Book

(from Goodreads)

Short-Lived is a dark novella set amidst the grittier areas of Phoenix, Arizona. Nine stories tell tales of money, power, life, and death. Short-Lived intricately weaves the lives of a drug addict, his love interest, dealers, and those struggling for power in the streets. Who will come out on top, and who will get left in the dust?

My Review

I received a free ecopy of this book for an honest review.

I started this novella a couple of times but I had trouble getting into it. I opened it today and told myself that I was going to read it this time or give up trying. I’m glad I gave it another chance.

Short-lived was a little hard to get into but once I got into it, I couldn’t put it down because I had to finish it to find out what happened.

Sadly, I think Short-lived is probably realistic. It’s a dark story about gangs, drugs, violence and death. It could have ended in many different ways but the way Michael Pritsos ended it was fitting.

Available on Amazon.
