Anyway, enough patting myself on the back. And don't mind me as I take a short stroll through some of my most memorable reads of the year.

This book was more of a novella, as it was only 115 pages. I didn't particularly click with this one, didn't enjoy the read as much as I had hoped, but it was an interesting book that has stuck with me since I read it. It's certainly an interesting topic for thought: Preachers as killers, tasked with sending their marks to their death or to Purgatory. The thing that has stuck with me the most, though, was how the reader gets to see three different points of view on what happened to Vegas, a brutal massacre on the part of the Church in order to purge sin from the world. A recommended read, even if you don't consider yourself a religious person.
