4.0 out of 5 stars I like mine with a twist! 31 Dec. 2014
By laurathomas61 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is written as a story in a story.

The author opens with an old man sitting in his rocking chair sharing a story with his two grandsons. A story about two young boys and an evil beach.

Seth and Junior stumble upon a cave, and being boys, they dare each other to enter. Inside, it is dark and creepy, but as they continue further into the cave they see light and step through to an isolated strip of pristine beach.

At first, they are thrilled to have their own secret beach but when they turn around, something written on the rocks invites and warns them. It's almost like a dare, so of course the boys attempt to do what it says, building something in the sand.

What seemed like a lark became their worst nightmare and and soon they had to return to the cave and the beach, pursued by something out of their nightmares.

I'm very much into character driven stories and am amazed at how well the author developed his in so few words. The old man and grandsons didn't even have names, yet I could see them sitting on that porch, the boys rapt as their grandfather spun his tale.

And Seth and Junior, the two boys in the tale, reacted just like you'd expect them too. They believe they are invincible and grow up fast when they discover they aren't.

A well written short story that captured me from beginning, to middle, to end.

The author `pulled my leg' with his twist at the end, tying the two tales together.

By Carolyn Hertz - Published on Amazon.com

The Living Sand by Anthony Renfro is a frightening short story. I gave it four stars.

A grandfather sat in a rocker on his wooden porch telling his grandsons a story about two twelve year old boys, Seth & Junior who discovered a hidden beach with a cave that had a wall with a skull & crossbones symbol on it that looked like it was bleeding or freshly painted. It gave a serious warning & a sinister laugh.

They ran. Later Junior taunted Seth about being a 'frady cat' to get him to go back to the cave again. They then learned about the evil deadly secrets that lie within its soft white grains of sand.

It has two bonus short stories: Joyride about a Chevy Chevelle & A Haunted House Tale. Both were entertaining.

I received a complimentary copy from the author. That did not change my opinion for this review.

4.0 out of 5 stars Like a surprise ending, check this short horror story 13 Oct. 2015
By Sherry Fundin - Published on Amazon.com

Grandfather is sitting on the porch, entertaining the boys with stories.

As he told the true story of The Living Sand, the boys were spellbound.

Imagine, if you will, entering a portal and onto the most beautiful beach you have ever seen. Everything is so bright and vibrant, but where are the people?

I thought this would be the end, but it was only the beginning.

If you are tempted to go to the beach on the night of the full moon, you might want to think twice.

I was sucked in, misdirected and totally fooled by this wicked tale of daring or foolishness.

So, enter, if you dare and you decide.

Fun short story that would be the perfect "around the campfire" tale. A good spooky tale for the young ones while camping or at Halloween.
4.0 out of 5 stars Captivating and a bit nostalgic 6 July 2016

Fast-paced, exciting, and originally imaginative. The author did a great job of tapping into my own personal childhood fantasies and horrors.
