Firstly I should warn you that only 25% of this download is the story, the rest is excerpts and such of the author's other works.

Joe and Cath travel around, Cath drawing portraits that she can use to feed on the souls of the victims. When Joe thinks that Cath is drawing him, he takes drastic action, but the consequences of this aren't what he had planned.

This is a good little read that you can easily get through whilst having a drink, and is spookily entertaining.

Cath is an itinerant street artist. She draws people not for the money, but so the thing inside her can feed on them through her drawings, and it is hungry, very hungry.

This is a short story that will only take you about 15 minutes to read at most, but it is a very enjoyable and creepy 15 minutes and a nice variation on the vampire/soul eater type story.

Kindle presentation is very good with no issues that I could spot, but I should point out that the story finished at 25% on the Kindle status bar. The remainder consisted of a rather nice afterword from the author (I always enjoy hearing about the author's thought processes), and a lot of samples of his other works.

Overall: 4 stars - An entertaining and nicely constructed short horror story that is well worth downloading.

Format: Kindle Edition
This story pulled me in from the very beginning. Just the mention of a child as prey and of this woman saying that she is hungry made my skin crawl. Cath is always hungry, not for food or flesh or blood, but for the very life force of others. As she sketches and captures people on paper, she also seems to capture that very part of them that makes them alive, and this is the part that she craves, the very soul that she devours, right from the image on the page.

For a short story, the author accomplishes so much here, creating a real sense of something dreadful about to unfold, that good but creepy feeling that something dark will soon touch the reader. The author expertly takes you to that place of apprehension, where the reader wants that dark touch yet also fears it. This is a well-done and satisfying read that delivers a true feeling of unease and horror, and even a certain sadness at the ending.

Enjoyed this story a great deal; well constructed, characters I could feel for, and a truly creepy atmosphere. And the bonus for me: it was not predictable.

HASH(0x8fd3d18c) out of 5 stars A twist on a classic horror theme 25 Sept. 2011
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This short story is elegantly crafted, conveying countless nuances in just a turn of phrase or a setup to a scene. It manages to convey all the themes of hunger, redemption, loss, regret, and destruction in very few pages and the climaxes are full of poignancy and drama.

HASH(0x8fd3d150) out of 5 stars What You Pay For 21 Jun. 2013
By Book A. Holic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The part of this book you pay for is one VERY SHORT STORY. And it's a whooper of a good horror story. What you don't pay for takes up the majority of the upload... it's bits of OTHER STORIES.
Kinda backfired for me. As much as I enjoyed what I paid for... I fear what I might be getting if I buy more. Too many pages of too many excerpts from too many other short stories.
