Short Story Review: The Ivory Tower by Kirstin Pulioff



“The Ivory Tower” was an awesome short read. Sometimes, in between working, being married, and being a mother I don’t have but a few minutes to sit and read. A richly detailed short story like this can keep me tided over until I get time for a full reading session.

The main character, Simone, is a mischievous orphan who pushes the spoken and literal boundaries of the camp she lives in when skipping classes and playing a game with a friend. She discovers, with violence and consequences, that all is not as it seems in their small world. Simone is a strong character and the author does a great job of world building and character creation in a few short pages.



Kirstin Pulioff is a storyteller at heart. Born and raised in Southern California, she moved to the Pacific Northwest to follow her dreams and graduated from Oregon State University (Go Beavs!) with a degree in Forest Management. Happily married and a mother of two, she lives in the foothills of Colorado, and enjoys being a stay at home mom. When she's not writing an adventure, she's busy living one.

She loves to hear from readers and fans. Please connect with her on any of her sites:
