Editorial Reviews

From the Author

My mind was possessed by a semi-truck as I started this story, and then we had a twist in the highway and I discovered that there was more to this story. Apparently all that time reading about serial killers as a teenager came in handy. 
While this is not my first try at fiction, I am honored to have been chosen to be a part of this collection. I am working on more projects and cannot wait to add more to my resume. 

About the Author

The twisted mind behind "In the Eyes of the Beholder" lives in the northwoods of Wisconsin with her grizzly bear husband and Care Bear daughter. She is known for having her greatest inspiration in the middle of the night. This is her first foray into the fiction genre, previously having been published for nonfiction articles related to parenting and home education.

Since this is an Anthology This review will be slightly different. As Anthologies are a comprised of more than story, it would do the book as a whole a great injustice to review and rate the book as such. This review I image will be quite lengthy as I'm going to break down and review each individual story within this book's covers...

1) Voices of the Soul (Soul Seers #1) by Rene Folsom

The start of this didn't come as a total surprise. It seems to be the current fad to have the main character come into or learn that have some special ability. Though Orella's is a bit different than I've encountered recently.
The fact that her mother was able to convey the message and a small amount of what Orella can do, is a touching moment that will make a lump form in even the strongest of people.
While Jonah isn't suprised that he and Ella share the same gift.. Ella's reacting is priceless! I cried from laughing so much.
About the only thing I didn't care for in this story was Jonah. I mean as a characer he's great.. his vocabulary could use an upgrade. The lines he uses on Ella come off as being staged, like he's reading the script for a cheesy 19th century romance.
The ending of this however isa good one. It's quite unexpected and a great start to the Soul Seers Series.
I give this one 5 of 5

2) Number 18 by Michael Loring

I'd like to start with..Hell Yeah!!! I absolutely loved the start of this story. The cold fear and adreline coursing through Robert's veins pulses through the readers as he stalks and attacks his prey. I'm sure if he'd known what he was up against he'd have changed his mind, but that wouldn't make the story interesting.
I wish this story had been a bit longer. There's not enough to really grasp the reader.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining Stories with Unexpected Twists March 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
I've always enjoyed stories with twists and this anthology provided plenty of good ones. Twist has a great variety of stories, from the haunting style of Sweet Lenora to the interesting vampire lore found in Little Tchotchkes and the hilarious teenage angst of All I Want For Christmas. Each story is engaging and entertaining. The anthology covers almost the full gamut of paranormal creatures: mind readers, werewolves, vampires, ghosts, zombies, Mormons (yes, Mormons are paranormal here), witches, haunted trucks, angels and spirit entrapment.

I don't want to say too much about each story for fear of giving things away, so I'll just give some brief impressions of each one.

Voices Of The Soul by Rene Folsom- A unique concept with romance and a bit of spice.

Number 18 by Michael Loring- A serial killer stalks his 18th victim. Creepy and dark.

Sweet Lenora by Bart Hopkins- A young girl gets advice from her bed-ridden mother. I loved the writing style of this one.

Truth Or Dare by Jon Messenger- College drinking game gone bad. Touching and sad.

Suburban Zombie by Anthony Lance- A new twist on zombie lore with some very unique villains.

All I Want For Christmas by Jason Brant- It's almost scary how well Jason did the voice of a 13-year-old girl.

In The Eyes Of The Beholder by Penelope Bartotto- Interesting combination of paranormal concepts. Compelling and different.

Little Tchotchkes by Nicki Scalise- Very unexpected but well done twist on vampire lore.
I Am Serna by Magen Mcminimy- Great urban fantasy style.

Bloodlines by S. L. Dearing- A chilling villain hunts down two extraordinary children.

Metronome by Eaton Thomas Palmer- A good psychological mystery. Is he crazy or isn't he?

I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Twisted, this is... June 25, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This Anthology is a great compilation of authors, most of whom I have not heard of before now. I enjoyed all the stories in here, and they kept me guessing throughout each one. There were a few stories I thought I had figured out half way through, just to be proven wrong. I wrote down the names of a few authors that I plan on looking up to see what else they have available to read, because I love their writing style.

I definitely recommend this book if you are looking for something spooky, and that will keep you turning those pages to find out what happens next. You will not be disappointed in the least. Good job to all the authors involved.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Anthology! Many great short stories October 24, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This anthology contains 11 stories. I will go through each story in the order they come in the book, and then in the end I will tell you which ones was my favorites and what I thought overall about this anthology. But before I get there, you should know that this anthology IS with a twist. Each story had to have a twist in it - and let me tell you, some of these I did NOT see coming!
So, let's begin with the first story:

Voices of the Soul by Rene Folsom
Orella (Ella) has been hearing voices all her life, but never truly understood what they were. She just thought she was losing her mind. When her mother and herself get critically injured in a car accident, Ella learns she is a soul-seer. Ella loses her mother and tries to move on, which isn't easy.
One day, she meets a boy - someone kinda like her. Not entirely, but almost. Both are drawn to each other like moths to a flame, and quickly they become a part of each other. But is it real? Will it last? And who is Jonah Chantrey really?
I did like this story, although I have to say it did remind me a little bit of Twilight. And no, I do not mean that in a bad way. I enjoyed Twilight, but have found MANY other authors since. I'm just saying, I could relate some of the things to that book. Voices of the Soul starts out with a tragedy, turns into a love story.... Right before the twist is delivered. And I know many romance Lovers will sit and scream of vengeance, but for me, this ending was a really good one, one that made me want to read the next book in her series; Eyes of the Soul.

Number 18 by Michael Loring
In Number 18, we follow a man, who has chosen his target for the night, every thought he has about her and her boyfriend.
