There are seven short stories all with the theme of time. Past, present and future are all represented. I have heard of a few of these authors but I haven't gotten to chance to read any of their work so I was thrilled to get my hands on a copy. One of my favorite parts to all the stories was the about section at the end where the authors describe how the story came about. I thought it put a great extra in for the readers. I also liked how all the authors are from Colorado because so am I. It is nice to be able to support hometown authors. I now know that I will be picking up some of their work because I was addicted. This is the first anthology I've been able to read and can't wait to read more.
Suicide High by Corinne O'Flynn
It is a story about a young woman who can feel and see spirits. I found this story to be captivating. I couldn't stop turning the pages because I wanted to get down to the ending. I was shocked with the ending. My jaw was hurting because my mouth dropped for so long. I look forward to reading more from this author.
Countdown Cafe by Kristi Helvig
I found this story to be very touching. It focus on the lost time of a young woman who lost her twin. My favorite part was when she first found the cafe. You could picture her smile when she first drank that mocha. It was heart warming and eerie. I really enjoyed it and look forward to reading more from Kristi Helvig.
Jesse's Girl by Rebecca Taylor
This story is about a young man who woke up and can't figure out what happened at a party the night before. I was blown away from this story. This was my absolute favorite. I love horror and this filled my horror void. My favorite part was the bed scene. I can't say much more because I don't want to give it away. I read this story at night and found myself having nightmares which is awesome. I recommend this story to any horror fans.
Duo'ver by Sue Duff
This story takes place in the future. It is about a marriage union and second chances. I found this to be a real heartwarming tale. It showed how far love can take us and what a ultimate sacrifice is. I loved all the characters and found that this story moved fast. I look forward to reading more from this author.
The Door by Shawn McGuire
This story is about choices. I liked the main character and found I could easily picture all of her make up artist skills. I found the concept of the door to be intriguing. We have a door at work that no one knows where it goes and can't open. I found this story touched a spooky feeling close to home. I can't wait to dig into her ya series after reading this story.
The Fate Stone by Wendy Terrien
I really enjoyed this story. I liked the main character Genna. I love the insane asylum aspect. I found it to be fast paced and I really enjoyed it. My favorite part was when she woke up in the asylum. This definitely focuses on time past.
Untimely by A.G. Henley
I loved this story. I loved how it combined past and present time. I'm a fan of time travel so this was a great read for me. It was fast paced and kept my heart racing. I liked the characters and I thought it flowed nicely. It was a great ending to a amazing anthology.
My collection of anthologies has tripled in the last year and Tick Tock: Seven Tales of Time is a perfect example of why.
There are seven short stories all based on a theme; in this case, time. I was originally going to post just a mini review, but each of the stories are so good and so unique, I need to touch on each separately:
Suicide High (Corinne O'Flynn) - Rather good take on the traditional ghost story. A student who can see spirits--and the specters know it. It's a good old fashioned 'who dun nit' as well, all pulled of nicely.
Countdown Cafe (Kristi Helvig) - The tactile sense of this story was, well, palatable. I felt everything that happened. Saw where this one was heading, but didn't care, it was that good. Finished it while in a bakery, funny enough.
Jesse's Girl (Rebecca Taylor) - This evil little story scared the living crap out of me. Every wake up and not know where you are or what you've done? Awesome stuff...
Duo'ver (Sue Duff) - The first Science Fiction entry. Hated the female character at first, but that's what makes the transformation so much more impactful. A little slow at first, but grabbed me for the entire ride.
The Door (Shawn McGuire) - A spooky tale that follows the choices of the main character. You'll never look at a door quite the same way again.
The Fate Stone (Wendy Terrien) - Asylum stories always freak me out--I grew up near a massive (and abandoned) insane asylum, so I approached this one with a bit of trepidation. Then suddenly, it was over. This story is a rollercoaster...!
Untimely (A.G. Henley) - Ah. The Time Travel Story. Was expecting this one, and it did not disappoint! Like The Fate Stone, this is a fast-paced, wonderful tale that seamlessly spans timeframes. Great anchor story and a marvelous way to end the anthology.
This is a marvelous set of stories by wonderful authors. I have since picked up additional works from the scribes...and I haven't been disappointed yet. Neither will you.
I had not read anything from most of the authors that combined their talents in this book. That will have to change. All of the stories were great! Great job to all of you!!
I received an arc of this free of persuasion in exchange for an honest review.
