Optical Delusion - Hunter Shea
Optical Delusion - Hunter Shea

Hunter Shea has tapped into our childhood for his latest offering of fear. Remember those ads in the backs of comic books? Muscles like Charles Atlas. Sea monkeys. Joy buzzers. Fake ice cubes with a fly in the middle. Gum that turns your mouth black. Oh, and the ever popular, X-ray glasses. I certainly remember them. More specifically, I remember wanting them and my mom saying "absolutely not". Well, what would happen if she did allow me to get those x-ray glasses and after 10 minutes of making my eyes hurt, I tossed them aside only to have my dad pick them up and put them on. And, what if, in between the fuzzy-eyed headache it produced, he saw a glimpse of a girl's panties she had on underneath her clothing? And what if, in desperate attempts to get more than a glimpse or two of what the females looked like under their winter clothing, it caused something else? Something more hideous, more macabre, and it wouldn't let you turn away?

 

Optical Delusion was a fun ride into every boy that grew up in the 1970s and 80s past and warped it with a Twilight Zone twist and an EC Comic turn. My last couple of reads from Shea have been my favorites. He's honed his chops the last few years and is churning out nothing but quality lately. So much so, that he's quickly become one of my go to writers that can't miss.

We're Dead In This Ghost Town
We're Dead in this Ghost Town (ReMade Book 11) - E. C. Myers,Andrea Phillips,Carrie Harris,Gwenda Bond,Matthew Cody,Kiersten White

The group has finally arrived in the city spotted some episodes earlier and are making their way down the completely deserted place. Despite several mentions on how dangerous it is, Holden and Loki decide to go and take a look at the Mall.

Finally something is happening that looks like it is going to add to the solution of what is going on. I do think that the characters were not adequately freaked out by their somewhat spooky new surroundings, but this was only a minor concern after what has passed already in this series.

Only four episodes to go, can't wait to get to the conclusion!

End Of The Line
End of the Line (ReMade Book 8) - E. C. Myers,Andrea Phillips,Carrie Harris,Gwenda Bond,Matthew Cody,Kiersten White

This was not really my episode. They're still on the train and for a large part of the episode, nothing really happens. There's more backstory, of course, but I would have liked to see some more direction.

We're halfway through this season and I'm still completely in the dark as to what the kids are doing, why and why did they have to die first?

I really hope to see some answers in the next episodes!

The Most Dangerous Game
The Most Dangerous Game (ReMade Book 4) - E. C. Myers,Andrea Phillips,Carrie Harris,Gwenda Bond,Matthew Cody,Kiersten White

Another episode, another backstory... (This really seems to be the formula of the series).

Episode four focuses on Loki (not his real name) and how he ended up in the complete mess everyone's in at the moment. At the same time, some dangerous predators are lurking in the shadows.

It was an enjoyable read, but somewhere I was glad it was so short. The backstories sometimes really pulled me out of the story instead of providing more bonding with the characters.
