In this compelling, suspenseful short story, Lanz gives us well-drawn characters and a satisfying, twisty plot. I didn't see the ending coming. This story was definitely a page-turner, and I look forward to reading more by Ryan Lanz.
Despite the story being short — 25 pages, and a bit of clunky language, Unknown Sender was an enjoyable read packed with tension and excitement. The end was good, and a bit unexpected, though not totally as Lanz dropped hints early onto what drove the demons that stalked Jessica. The interplay between these demons, Jessica’s reaction to the text messages and the resolution of the story I wished had been explored more in-depth. Unknown Sender has the ability to be a gripping psychological mystery.
This reviewer was provided with a copy for an honest critique.
Apart from that I thought this was a great sample of Lanz’s talent, and I’m certainly looking forward to reading his future stories.
In it, a young college student starts receiving text messages from some mysterious person who seems to know everything about her. But who is this strangely omniscient stalker? Her beautiful, popular roommate? Her roommate's boyfriend (who has tried to put the moves on her)?
In an effort to escape the texts, the protagonist flees to a remote cabin in the woods. But even that is not enough to help her escape the one worst enemy she can neither avoid nor ignore....
Okay, that’s all I’m going to give away. ;)
I look forward to future publications from this author.
I don't think phones send text messages, at all, when there's no signal.
Clear writing, but could have used a longer ending, and perhaps some emotions toward Aubrey. The writing was clunky, in places. Overall, great characters, suspense, and setting.

So, not perfect, but a promising piece of writing by an obviously talented writer. An ideal 'commute' read.
