#Review: Earth Blood, by Douglas Owen

Title: Earth Blood3b1cc4f0808dd1cc0cb2a800657bdf04c1218a6d
Author: Douglas Owen
Rating: 4/5 stars

“If the Dwarven race is real, and man still needs oil from the ground. What would happen if the drilling was near their clan’s cavern? They fight back, and still keep themselves hidden.” (description from Goodreads)


The blurb for this story doesn’t do it justice. I found there to be much more to the story as I continued reading. Part fantasy, with an unexpected sci-fi twist, this short story brings up some great ethical questions to those once they finish the story. For the most part I was sided with the dwarves, who are in hiding from the humans and their drilling. But with an unexpected bit of info near the end, I had to ask “What’ll happen to the dwarves if they don’t let the humans have some Earth Blood? Maybe the humans need it to defend all of the creatures of the planet.
