“Amy Grech writes with a powerful mix of emotion and terror, leaving her readers feeling winded yet hungry for more.”
—Joel A. Sutherland, Bram Stoker Award-nominated Author of FROZEN BLOOD

5.0 out of 5 stars Disturbingly Delightful 4 Feb 2012
By Books N Beans - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I received this book for free from the author in exchange for a review.

Blanket of White by Amy Grech is a collection of 14 short stories all disturbing, creepy, and the best kind of horror. They are the kind of stories that give you the creeps, the chills, and best of all they make you question something with each one.

So, get ready for a round of 20 (okay, 14) questions!

Blanket of White: How far would you go if you had a child who suffered from a debilitating and painful disease?

Ashes to Ashes: Do you really want someone to love you forever?

Come and Gone: Wait! What happened? Did she leave? Did he kill her?

Rampart: What the H? Seriously? Moving walls? Is this a lesson in actions have consequences? Lesson learned.

Prevention: (The age old question) Are we formed at birth or does how we're raised play a larger part? Makes you want to go love your children right now, even if they are sleeping.

Raven's Revenge: Wouldn't it be great to come back from the dead and right all the wrongs done to you?

Perishables: How would you cope if you lost your whole family in instant?

Cold Comfort: What is wrong with these people?

Damp Wind and Leaves: An absolutely sweet one mixed in the rest, but still asks the question of "What would you do?"

Initiation Day: Wouldn't it be great if all bullies got what they deserved?

Russian Roulette: How was that fair? Yeah, yeah, life isn't fair.

Crosshairs: Is it possible that no matter what teachings a warped mind is given, that they will twist it into evil learnings?

Apple of My Eye: What does it take for a victim to become an abuser?

EV 2000: How automated will we get? What's the danger of relying on technology so much?

Hmmm, that may have ended up being 20 questions.

Absolutely dark and deliciously disturbing stories that are an enjoyment to read, though alone at night might not be the best time. Just saying. However, no matter what the time is get Blanket of White and keep reading!

With a unique and enchanting style, Amy Grech delivers an incredibly provacative collection that definitely brings the goods. Each story takes the reader into a new and exciting world that is sometimes sad, sometimes scary, and always dark. Grech's style is unmatched and her voice is all her own. This is one book no fan of the macabre should be without. Highly recommended.

The titular story of Amy Grech's collection, Blanket of White, is the perfect lead in to what reads like a conglomeration of the darker side of human nature. As I read through the first story, I became more and more unnerved as I realized it seemed the story would in fact end the way I thought it might. It was a truly deliciously dark start.

I admire the way the stories in this collection seem to fit together, flowing from one to the next as they each explore more darkness and depravity. Once you finish one story, you can't help but read the first page of the next, just to see where it starts. Then you realize you've read five pages instead of one, then you've finished another story and your starting the first page of the next, "Just to see how it starts."

A personal favorite of mine is "Raven's Revenge," which like many of the stories weaves a wonderful setting through great imagery and atmosphere. True chills, of course, follow.

The only gripe I have is that there were one or two (very minor) formatting issues. Nothing that detracts from the collection per se, but just little things that jump out at you. Overall this is a superb collection that deserves your undivided attention.
4.0 out of 5 stars Slick & Sick 20 Oct 2009
By Nick Cato - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Amy Grech's second collection of short stories is as good as her first (Apple of My Eye)---then again, this is basically the same collection with two new stories added.

So how do the new tales stack up? The title story is a spooky heartbreaker in the vein of Gary Braunbeck or Christopher Conlon (and if you have a daughter like I do, it'll hit you even harder). Russian Roulette, the second new offering, features some dry humor and is perhaps the most different tale in the lot.

If you haven't had the pleasure of reading Grech's first collection, you'll surely enjoy Perishables, Cold Comfort, and my favorite Grech tale, EV 2000, a sci/fi vampire story that's to die for.

Apple of My Eye went out of print after two printings. If you missed it, Blanket of White is a must read. If you own Apple and are a big Grech fan, you'll want this---or at least get the e-book edition to check out her new stories. Also includes a movie trailer-like introduction by Michael McCarty.

Amy---we're waiting for a novel!
