What's NOT to like? A protagonist that immediately elicits my empathy, a despairing situation for him, a male protagonist at that who has Emotions! Matt is not afraid to own up to his feelings, either; and I liked that because it makes him stand out from the usual crowd. Then in his quest for distraction (and how nice it is that he didn't run immediately for alcohol, drugs, or promiscuity) he finds himself in the midst of utter terror-I gasped out loud and nearly dropped the laptop!-and again! This is non-stop horror-bizarre, far-fectched, but ultimately realistic (no difficulty suspending disbelief here!)-and the reader is going to sit with jaw dropped, heart pumping out of throat, eyes as wide as saucers-and ears perked for any unusual sounds outside-just in case it's even more real than we thought.
This story was riveting-I didn't want to take my eyes off it and railed at every distraction. My reader's sense is screaming "more! More! More!" I'd say Charlie Morgan is a talent to watch!
Reader Caution: I loved this story but it is gory, graphic, and intense-not for the faint of heart or the weak of stomach. That said-go get it!
First and foremost, I'll add some background to this review. I have read a few stories from Charlie Morgan. Two in particular are damn good, and they are 'Birthday Wish' (a short story published in the anthology 'Soul Survivors Volume 1') and 'Carcass', which remains as the most frightening short story I've ever read, and I'm not just saying that, Carcass is eerie and taunts with your nerves.
Sticks and stones delivers a story jam-packed with action, filled with terrifying plot-twists and gore, oh, don't get me started on the gore. Morgan's writing style is crisp and fluid. As a fellow aspiring novelist, I admire Morgan's prose. Morgan has a way of drawing a surreal environment without the need of paragraph upon paragraph of detail; he gives the reader brief descriptions, but these descriptions are effective, well-written and are brimming with potent imagery.
The gore scenes will make you cringe...that's really all I have to say about that, they are quite brutal.
This is a great horror story with a lot of great elements to it. I was hard pressed to find any flaws in the overall story and I highly recommend it to any other fans of good old school horror.
I'm hungry for more of Charlie Morgan's work.

Charlie Morgan crafts a story with multiple perspectives, and alternate timelines which all merge together in one final, bloody altercation. This is a writer who knows how to keep you in suspense, no matter what he chooses to set to print.
For fans of cryptids, extreme bloody horror, and simple, good old-fashioned horror tales in the woods. Sticks and Stones will smack you upside the head, and keep you trapped, turning page after page until you find there are no more. At this point you will be sad, but never fear, there are extra goodies after Sticks ends.
Keep your eyes open for Charlie Morgan. He's sure to continue to crank out quality horror fiction.
And he's only just begun to kick your ass with his words.
