Book Review: The Easter Egg by Sarah Eaglesfield

Last Updated: 16 September 2021

The Easter Egg by Sarah Eaglesfield book cover

The Regal Laurel Egg is missing, and only Nathan Strowse knows the full story. The recent death of his father weighing heavily on his mind, he attempts to strike one last deal with a woman he picked up at an antique fair. He wants to go straight now, and become the kind of man that his father would be proud of, but can he pull it off before the net closes in on him?

I don't often read short stories, but this year, I'm doing my best to diversify the books I'm reading and branch out into new genres and different formats. I've read a little bit of everything so far this year, from poems and anthologies to non-fiction and Young Adult, so when this short story popped up on Kindle Unlimited, I was instantly intrigued.

The Easter Egg is well-paced and suspenseful, keeping the reader guessing right to the very end. Featuring a strong blend of mystery and intrigue, the story hooked me right away. I finished the story all too quickly and was left wanting more!

I really liked the concept of this story as well - it's completely original and a real credit to the writer's imagination and creativity. The twist was unexpected and surprising, cleverly executed especially when you consider the short length of the story.

The Easter Egg was a pleasant surprise and I'm glad I took a chance on a short story. Maybe this is a sign I should read more short stories moving forward? Either way, I look forward to reading more from Sarah Eaglesfield in the future!

Rating: 5 stars

The Easter Egg is available to buy now.
