Review: The Control

The Control - Will Swardstrom

When is it too much to trust blindly in your gods?

Is it when they ask you to obey them?
Is it when they ask you to die for them?
Or could it be when they ask you to live.. forever?

Bek was once a simple man until he was given the gift of immortality, but doomed to die over and over again, just to be brought back to die again, never reaching peace. I really loved watching him evolve from a simple man who followed others through to the end of the story, watching his growth through his struggles.

Though this is a short story, the author really packs in a great tale, making you want to read more, becoming fascinated by the characters and the ideas behind them.
