Review: Echo by Thomas Olde Heuvelt

There are a lot of reasons why I really wanted to read Echo by Thomas Olde Heuvelt. First, the cover reminded me of Wool, a book (well, series) I’ve been thinking a lot about lately. For another, the opening scene reminded me of a popular graphic novel/television series. Continue reading

Review: Lute by Jennifer Marie Thorne

I imagine most of us would be more worried about the catch, thanks to our obsession with the cost of bargains. Enter the tale of Lute, written by Jennifer Marie Thorne. Continue reading

Review: Sundial by Catriona Ward

If you love psychological horrors or Catriona Ward’s writing, please do not miss out on the experience that Sundial has to offer. Though I should warn readers that it is very much a dark read – one that I found to be borderline too much at times. So read with caution! Continue reading

Review: Screams from the Dark Anthology

Screams from the Dark is a horror anthology consisting of twenty-nine terrifying and thrilling short stories. This is one of the better anthologies I’ve read this year, though perhaps I only feel this way because it is precisely what I’ve been craving. Either way, I was delighted to find this book in my mailbox. Continue reading

Review: Manhunt by Gretchen Felker-Martin

Okay, there was no way that I was going to skip out on Manhunt, not after that pitch. I mean, a combination of Y: The Last Man and The Girl With All the Gifts? Yes, please! Written by Gretchen Felker-Martin, this book had big shoes to fill. Oh, did I mention that Manhunt is essentially a gender-based apocalypse story? Yeah. It’s going to get intense. Continue reading

Review: Dead Silence by S.A. Barnes

There were a lot of reasons behind my desperation to read Dead Silence. The cover, the description, the nostalgia (anyone else getting serious Dead Space vibes from both the cover and description?), and even the implied atmosphere. As such, I went into S.A.Barnes’ Dead Space with really high expectations. Expectations that were not disappointed. Continue reading
