5.0 out of 5 stars Revenge of the coldest type, 15 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark That Day, After All (Black Light of Day) (Kindle Edition)
A lot of authors would have turned this into a redemption tale. This is definitely not one of those; the revenge theme and ending tips it over the edge from a tense little narrative into horror - mainly because you never actually see the full outcome. You just know it's coming, and the more you think about the more awful it becomes.

I sympathised with both parties here, which is quite an achievement. One man did something awful out of desperation (and never knew the full consequences of his actions for years, which is part of the horror)but has regrets.

His victim has no interest in forgiveness - and in his situation, who could blame him? Although waiting this long for revenge means that it's not just cold, it's been in the deep freeze, and the way the need for vengeance twisted what might have once been a good man into something fearful is yet another psychological twist to the tale.

Recommended for short story lovers and psychological thriller fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Deliciously Chilling, 29 Jan 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dark That Day, After All (Black Light of Day) (Kindle Edition)
A quick read, yet a powerful one. A cleverly laid out story, where...I don't give spoilers. But I will say that if you wish to be chilled and delighted at the same time, read this short tale.

Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review: Dark That Day, After All by Jason McIntyre, 17 Dec 2012
This review is from: Dark That Day, After All (Black Light of Day) (Kindle Edition)
This is a story taken from McIntrye's anthology Black Light of Day. I haven't read the anthology, but I'm pretty sure I'll be buying it after reading "Dark That Day, After All."

I enjoyed the set up of this story. Jarvis the main character tells of a defining moment in his life, a hard life. I gained sympathy for him early on. What I wasn't expecting was a nice and dark twist in the story. By the time I caught the cue for the twist, it was too late; the story turned on its heels, amazing me.

This is a tale of redemption, confession, revenge, and the strange events that a solar eclipse can bring with it.
