My Review:

I received a copy of this from the author in exchange for an honest review.

I have broken down and rated the individual short stories and placed my overall rating at the bottom.

Of Shadows:  A woman was out walking her dog and suddenly wakes up in a cage dangling above the floor.  5*

Avenged:  A cowboy seeks vengeance on the men who killed his crew.  5*

Ordering Out:  An elderly gentleman battles from within whether to call out for pizza again.  (This one made me laugh)  5*

Perfect Little Hands:  A step-father grieves over the coffin of step-daughter.  4*

Inside Out:  An incarcerated man is interviewed by a local newspaper after 15 years of silence.  4*

Shards:  A couple, who never wanted children, find out that they are pregnant.  4*

Twist of Pain:  A young woman steals a baby.  5*

Old Habits:  A man returns from grocery shopping to the cabin he and his wife are staying in for the Summer, but something has gone horribly wrong during his absence.  5*

Split Ends:  A woman is afflicted with a rare ‘hair’ disease.  4*

Spaceship Earth:  A man finds what he thinks is a manhole cover in the middle of nowhere.  5*

Rebirth:  A man builds a mechanical ‘being’.  5*

Redpath, Stu:  A young man pulls into a diner in the middle of nowheresville.  (AWESOME) 5*

I truly enjoyed this wonderful collection of dark fantasy/horror stories.  Each have their own unique storyline and the outcome is always surprising, and some will make you think.  I will be on the hunt for more from this author.

My overall rating of this awesome collection is 5*.

Highly Recommended.

Recommended Audience:

Anyone above 13 who enjoys reading.  I didn’t find anything that would be inappropriate for this suggestion.

My Ratings:  5 of 5 Stars
