The Sparrow (The Returned, #0.6) by Jason Mott

The Sparrow (The Returned, #0.6) - Jason Mott

Everything I said about The First applies to The Sparrow as well. Written in third, telling rather than showing, there's a distance to the characters—-which actually works better here than in The First. This is a story about a couple who finds a Returned, a little girl, and takes her home. Again the issues of a dead person coming back to life and others' reactions to it are barely touched upon. There's simply no time for it at all.
