Asha was a dark fantasy short story that was set in our world in the present day. Although the child of ordinary mortals, Asha Jones was no mortal. She was actually a reincarnation of an ancient demon, and her mission could spell disaster for the human race.
While in high school, Asha met Morgana Le Guin, a witch who sensed that Asha was no ordinary human. Morgana felt a definite empathy toward Asha, despite her suspicions that Asha was very powerful and dangerous.
The story was very short, and I enjoyed reading it. The problem was that it was too short. Just as the story was starting to get really interesting, it was over, with no resolution of the storyline, just a "teaser" ending that implied that more was to come. For that reason, the story felt more like a prologue to a longer work than a complete short story. Based on the writing style and the content--limited as it was--I would give the story 4.5-5 stars, but because of the brevity of the story and the lack of resolution, I gave it 4 stars overall as a standalone story.
