I skipped "Voices of the Soul" this time round, as I have it as an ebook (and am planning on rereading Rene Folsom's Soul Seers series soon) but I remember it was an A* read - one of my top five books last year. "Number 18" was a decent enough story, although I'd guessed what was going to happen. I wish they'd decided to call this anthology "Twisted" or something slightly less obvious than what it's called. KNOWING each story has a twist makes them less shocking when they come. Not sure how I felt about "Sweet Lenora". I enjoyed the story but I'm undecided on the ending - it seemed abrupt. I hadn't figured out the twist, although I was prepared for various other things, from Josef being Joe Stalin to Charlie being a creature of the night of higher rank than Jakob. :)
"Truth or Dare" was good - very atmospheric - although once again I guessed the twist. My mind is twisted, I guess. :) "Suburban Zombie" was short and sweet, and literally made me LOL.
"All I Want for Christmas" was brilliant. The epistolary style works really well for stories like this - it makes the big reveal feel more shocking to me. The narrator's voice was so very much like that of a 13-year-old girl - kudos to the author, because that's not an easy thing to write, particularly for a man. And the sting was quite deliciously twisted. "In the Eyes of the Beholder" had an interesting storyline that kept me guessing, but it felt a bit overreaching.Read more ›
I've never been overly keen on anthologies, in the past I've always felt like I was missing out on the bigger story. This is a great anthology of shorts, and works as a great introduction to 11 new to me authors. There are a few books that I have seen written by a few of these authors, but I wasn't ready to take the jump into buying their work but having seen samples of it here I am more than convinced by their capabilities.
This collection has something for everyone, there is a vast range of paranormal creatures within these stories. So you wont be left disappointed. And the twists.. they keep on coming. I promise you, some of these you wont see coming.
Voice of the Soul - Rene Folsom
I absolutely loved this story! Very well written and I found myself drawn into the story. Will definitely be looking into reading the other novellas which continue this story.
Number 18 - Michael Loring
Short but sweet, this had my mind wondering from the beginning what would happen. I immediately thought the predator wasn't what he was portrayed to be so this had a great twist to the ending.
Sweet Lenora - Bart Hopkins
I personally didn't enjoy this story as much as the previous 2, for a short story it seemed to take longer to get to any real content and i found it hard to connect to the main character.
Truth or Dare - Jon Messenger
A well written short story, but I found it very predictable as the the outcome. I would have liked to have seen an extra chapter maybe to see the main characters reaction to the outcome.
Suburban Zombie - Anthony Lance
This really made me giggle! A very well written, alternative view on zombie life! A very interesting short read.
All I want for Christmas - Jason Brant
Amazingly written and the twist at the end was brilliant. I would have never guessed that outcome! Amazed at how well Jason wrote from the view of a 13 year old girl!
In the eyes of the beholder - Penelope Barlotto
An interesting piece with an interesting twist, well written and to me came across as a TV/movie concept.
Little Tchotchkes - Nicki Scalise
Wow the twist on this was amazing!Read more ›
