Review of "Holy Diver" by Grá Linnaea

"Holy Diver" by Grá Linnaea appeared in Daily Science Fiction on June 18, 2013.  "You are a priest in Hell on a mission from God."

This story is well-paced and builds suspense and mystery expertly.  Too bad second person POV was chosen--the story would have been much more powerful in third person--you know what I mean.  The end, while ironic and delicious, does present a bit of a conundrum.  Nevertheless, it is so original and entertaining that I will award it 5 out of 7 rocket-dragons.
