Title: Between The Devil and The Darkness

***THIS BOOK WAS GIVEN TO ME IN EXCHANGE FOR AN HONEST REVIEW***
Welcome, come in. Make yourself comfortable. I invite you to take a journey through these pages as they temporarily draw back the gauze veil that separates us from what crawls around in the dark of night, as well as that which brushes your sleeve as it passes by, unnoticed, on a crowded sidewalk in broad daylight.
Glimpse quickly, lest any one of the myriad of evils takes notice. Such happenstance could lead to, let’s say, unpleasantness? The tales within represent the tiniest fraction of the evils present all around us. Before you go further, a warning: what once is known cannot be unknown.
It’s time. Come quickly, if you dare. Turn the page. Allow me to call your attention to what lies between the devil and the darkness.
***Contains Adult Situations. Not for young readers***
If I did not know better I could have thought that some ten episodes of ‘The Twilight Zone’ had been written as short stories and presented as an anthology. They are that good and the standard of the first is maintained throughout.
Of course, you will have a favorite – mine is ‘The End….or is it?’ because this, even more than the others made me think.
It is rare to read an anthology and be left with the opinion that any one of the stories could be expanded into a full length novel, but this is a fact. The writer has the talent to do this is she so chose. Four stars rather than the five suggested by what I’ve said so far? Make no mistake – I rarely give five and four means it is very good. I felt that this writer is only going to get even better and one or two of the stories could have had better written (from my point of view) endings.
I recommend that you buy it, read it and then decide for yourselves. I intend to read her first book, ‘The Boomerang Effect’ and hope it turns out to be as good.
