The Sparrow


The Sparrow - Jason Mott

This was another short story released to interest people in The Returned, and focusses on the story of a little girl. Apparently she’s also mentioned in the novel, but I didn’t remember that.


Of all the three short stories (there’s also The First & The Choice, this one stayed with me most. Even though it is also very short and this is very obvious in the ending, which feel more than just a little bit rushed, I quite liked it. I only wish there would have been a bit more explanation as to where the returned are coming from and how does it work, since this isn’t really addressed in the novel either.
