End of the Line
End of the Line by Emma Meade
Publication Date: March 1st 2013
Genre: NA Paranormal
Cassie wants to die. When midnight rolls around, she stands on the tracks waiting for the train to come.
She loses her nerve the first couple of times but returns to try once more.
After all, third time's the charm.

~My Reaction~
When I saw that I had another email from Emma asking if I could review yet another short story of hers!
~My Thoughts~

~Was provided to me by the author in exchange for an honest review~

End of the Line is one of those short stories where it is told perfectly well that you can envision it being turned into a full length novel. It’s one where at the end of the tale you wish that it actually was. I told this to my boyfriend and he asks,
"Would you be as into it as you would a short story? I would think a short story is more exciting because it’s straight to the story and no character background."
I answered "Oh I'm sure I would but you're right, short stories are more exciting however if they are done well, they can make you crave more and that's when you wished it was a full length book." So yea, here I am wishing once again for a short story to be turned into a novel. Which I see Emma is very good at here ^_^.
You see in the beginning that Cassie is trying to kill herself by standing on some train tracks and waiting for the midnight train to get here, but always jumping away in time before it could hit her. They say the third times the charm right. On Cassie's third try at suicide, she believes she's got it right and that she'll go through with it till a surprise drives right through her, literally.
With a paranormal twist we are sprung into this question we have all asked ourselves in our lives at one point or another "Should I or shouldn't I" and that is one question Cassie was granted to ask herself, among fellow victims to suicide.
I believe this is great for teens and up. Its told about a subject that is hard to deal with and to talk about but I think whoever wants to read it should as it shows you that you do have a choice after all.

Author of Nights Sighs, Under the Desert Moon & The Awakening and Other Stories.

Emma Meade writes paranormal fiction.
She lives in rainy Ireland and loves all things supernatural. Stephen King's The Stand is one of her most loved books and she's lost count of the number of times she's read L.J. Smith's trilogy, The Forbidden Game. Books, DVDS & TV show boxsets take up lots of space in her home and she collects all the Point Horror books she can get her hands on.
She is not ashamed to admit that Dirty Dancing and Twilight make her top ten movie list but wishes to point out that The Last of the Mohicans, Reality Bites, Dead Poets Society, Stand by Me and The Goonies are in there too.

Writing supernatural stories & watching marathon re-runs of Buffy are some of her favourite ways of escaping reality.
