Not 100% original but not unoriginal either. There are some clever takes on a few of the stories. I did know what was up with the marines story from the minute it started. Reminded me of a story from the old TV show Fact or Fiction.
I was voluntarily provided this review copy at no charge by the author, publisher and or narrator.
Once again, I enjoyed Janine Pestel’s horror shorts immensely. Infected was great with Jason waking up to pain and realizing the person he had picked up at the bar the night before had bitten him! He then proceeds to have the worst day of his life. Harry was like an episode of the Twilight Zone with Harry being the only one who doesn’t realize what is going on. That is, until it is too late. The Servants, which I have listened to before was just as fun a listen as the first time. Madeline is spoiled, rich, and cheap. She also does not possess any loyalty to anyone. A combination that will not serve her in the end. Perhaps my favorite was The Visit. When her son suddenly appears by her bed in the middle of the night, she gets up to make him coffee. Little does she know the true reason for his visit.
All of these tales are enjoyable and together they make a diverting couple of hours. The only criticism I can offer is for Janine to flesh out her characters and plots a little more and make these stories more intricate and longer!
The narration by Lucie Starling was a good one and she added to the spine tingling nature of the stories themselves.
I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
The tales gave off a thriller/horror vibe, with a hint of the Paranormal. I loved the way each plot was so cleverly constructed, leading the reader into a state of uncertainty regarding the world we live in.
My favourite short in this collection was 'The Servants.' A marvellous creation of horror and human cunning.I recommend that you give this collection a try. Once you start, you may find it hard to stop.
