This anthology is a collection of seven stories, all centering around the concept of voyeurism in one way or another.  They are all very short, but with some interesting concepts in a couple that I wish would be explored more in a longer story.   The watching is done both with and without the knowledge of those … Continue reading

The Prologue of this book set the tone for me to NOT like Valentine, or Val.  Completely insensitive and utter ass.  He breaks the heart of Adrian, his friend and boyfriend (or so Adrian thought) by not only cheating on Adrian but then coming back and telling him all about the new guy, how “And man, he’s got skills.  I’ve never felt like that before.”  ASS.  Right then I … Continue reading

The difficulty I had with this book is that I wasn’t sure what it was supposed to be.  Was it a friend story? A paranormal? A warning?  I read it twice and I’m still not sure.  It’s a very short story (27 pages on iPad) that deals with whether or not fairies have returned.  It is told in first person by Chris, who is very skeptical on … Continue reading
