Thank you, Michael Loring, and keep up the good work!
The author may not know this, or believe me, but I am a HUGE fan of his. (Imagine Godzilla on steroids. Then imagine him on crack. That was me when I got my hands on this bad boy.)
I absolutely love this authors style. I love all of his short stories and his book, Dehumanized. He is talented at weaving stories that suck you in from start to finish. Are you looking for something new? How about a fresh breath of air in the paranormal world? Perhaps you are looking for something to read during some down time, or to simply find a new author. I must say that I found all of those when I found this author.
Each tale is unique and brings a smile to my face. I would, and have, recommend this to many.
I will review my favorites of the collection individually.
The Fox in the Field~ This one is a sweet story with an adorable fox, a not so adorable fiancée and a little paranormal twist. I fell in love with the fox and thought the Kitsune twist was perfect.
Number 18~ Robert is a real creep, who finds that the life of a serial killer isn’t the best path, when he comes across the world of the supernatural. He meets his match with his 18th victim as something he never knew existed fights back. Being that it’s a short story there isn’t a lot I can say that won’t give it all away, but I guarantee you won’t see the twist coming in this one.
The Wallflower Collapse~ this one was fantastic as I said above although it is a bit sad. A shy girl takes a chance on a night out on the town… it doesn’t go as she had planned and ends in a way I didn’t expect. Still it was very good.
No Forgiveness~ Now this one caught my attention for a few reasons, and as weird as this will sound the name of the character Morrigan had my brow rising. Knowing what I do of Celtic mythology, I had expectations that didn’t fit with the character at all, I very much thought I was going to be reading something different then what Loring wrote. The characters themselves are very interesting and Loring has given a lot of depth within a few short pages. I loved the religious part of this book and it very well may have been my favorite of the collection.
I think this anthology has a mix of really interesting themes and stories, some of which authors don't really like to explore or meddle with. Each story had this eerie and mysterious feeling that kept you on your toes and left you wondering what might happen next. Some stories were too short, which left you wanting more and some where just the right amount of words to let you ponder over it and the immense possibilities. I really liked the take on all the stories, how the paranormal or supernaturnal aspects were written in a humanly way and made you feel like some of this events could happen to you or anyone.
One of the most interesting themes were the interpretations of Death, the concept of Heaven and Hell and the mingling of good and bad in the Priest and Demon story. Also, the werewolf theme is expressed in a less fantastical way and a more raw and humane one which made you feel the struggle they had to live with by having to transform into these beings.
Overall I'll give it a score of 4.5 just because it could have been longer and there are some stories in which I just wanted more content. These are the kind of stories that will make you think about the infinite amount of possibilities and make you reflect about some concepts that are so rooted in our minds that sometimes we don't think about what they could really be or if they are just something society has build them up to be.
I recommend it to anyone who wants a short read of supernatural stories, with straighforward themes, and no sugar coating.
