The title of this short story made me think it would be my type of thing.I felt for Cody,on his own struggglin to get the old cimema back up and running.A teenager with secrets,a cimema with a ghost out for revenge and a pretty girl who is somthing else altogether.This is a quick read,entertaining and quite thrilling.I thouroughly enjoyed it and could have quite happily carried on reading about Cody and his small town cinema.

As a born again reader I stumbled across this short story by accident. I found the writing style unusual as its less descriptive than the norm however it lended itself very well to the storyline that has an imaginitive twist at the end. All in all a very enjoyable read and I intend to follow it up with other titles from this author.

This story was good. I was actually gutted when it finished which makes a change. It was easy to read and was thrilling and kept you reading. Brilliant !!! Vampires and ghosts in the same story that actually works

This short story is light, predictable and a little rushed. Pity, because the concept could have been given more depth and longevity. The characters and story will appeal to YA readers.
The whole ghost vs vampire relationship was interesting and not fully explored.
At times it felt as if the reader was being fobbed off with a tidbit instead of treated to the whole kit and caboodle.
Quick read, fun for a ten minute break.

It's quite good, the main character is likeable and the supernatural element is done quite well, especially the way the author blended it in with modern society and technology.

The ending was a little erratic, and maybe the story as a whole was a tad too short. But I will definitely look out for her works.

Good for a quick read.

What a strange short story! I think this was aimed at the younger end of the market and although it passed the time during my train journey home, I can't say I really engaged with it or wanted it to go on for any longer than it did. It was OK for a bit of light reading and for free but I wouldn't have wanted to pay for the experience! Still, download it and see what you think, you might really enjoy it!

There was nothing original about the storyline whatsoever. The author has seemed to borrow the worst parts of popular young adult novels and knitted them together very badly. The plot line was predictable and the so-called "twist at the end" that some reviewers have referred to, was about as subtle as a brick to the head. This is an appalling advert for the free books amazon has to offer for the kindle.

I downloaded this book essentially because it was free and I was eager to explore some new authors.

Unfortunately from the opening page I knew where the story was going, which is perhaps not atypical for short stories, but I immediately considered putting the book down. But if I had done that I would have missed the author's attempts to make the story unexpected. Suddenly I felt as if I'd entered a novella which dragged aspects from 'Twilight' and 'Paranormal Activity' and threw them together adding a dash of misplaced gore and this was the end result. And to be honest, I just did not get it. I think sticking to the expectations of an old tried and tested horror method would have been far more appealing than this.

However, I did find the length a comfortably short read and if it dropped the vampire aspect it might have had the premise of being a half decent plot.
