Call of Shadows by Terry Maggert
Call of Shadows - Terry Maggert

Call of Shadows: A Fearless Series Short Story (The Fearless Book 0) by Terry Maggert is a puzzling short story about a monster and her Helper. I gave it four stars.

 

The simple cross was used as bait. "Less than two feet high, of a simple design, the roadside monument was like the thousands of others that dot the rural South and elicit a sympathetic what a shame or intemperate thoughts of just desserts for rowdy youth."

It Sleeps at Dawn by Anthony Renfro
It Sleeps at Dawn - Anthony Renfro

It Sleeps at Dawn by Anthony Renfro is a short horror story. It has homonyms and typos so I gave it four stars.

 

An unnamed woman awoke not knowing where she was. Then discovered stained glass windows with frightening scenes of vampires. She ran to a door and struggled to open it.

 

Outside she met a man she'd seen the night before but did not go home with him. She was sure of that. "He smiled at her, an evil dark eat you alive from head to toe smile, which revealed large white fangs..."

 

There was two Bonus Short Stories: The Living Sand which I had read and reviewed before. Also Fear of the Scarecrow.

The Rosegiver by Sandy Benitez
The Rosegiver - Sandy Benitez

The Rosegiver by Sandy Benitez is a horror, young adult book set in the late 1800s in rural England. Rachel Harper travels to her aunt's home, the Rosethorne Inn in Thistlegrove. She learns from a writer, John, who is also traveling to the inn that several young girls are missing. Rachel is frightened but feels safe when she arrives.

 

While Rachel waited in the train depot, she observed: "professionally dressed gentlemen in black wool suits huddled together like a murder of crows, discussing the business of the day."

 

"Sighing, she grabbed another lemon drop from her purse and plopped it into her dry mouth. She loved the tart taste but it always seemed to cause her mouth to twist in a funny manner when it first hit her tongue. She wondered how many strangers had witnessed the odd distortion on her face when she ate one and if they thought she was well or suffering from some unknown ailment."

 

Ronan is a graveminder and employed as a 'Jack of all trades' by her Aunt Judith. The language is flowery but suitable for the timeframe.

 

Mysterious happenings took place. Can they find the kidnapper before Rachel is harmed? Can this situation be solved?

 

It kept my attention, so I gave it five stars. Unfortunately, the Kindle edition I received had awkward breaks with the book's title, page numbers or the author's name inserted in strange places. I found that very distracting.

 

I received a complimentary Kindle copy from Createspace and NetGalley. That did not change my opinion for this review.

Moonborn: The Proving by Marina Finlayson
Moonborn: The Proving: A Prequel - Marina Finlayson

Moonborn: The Proving by Marina Finlayson is an intriguing paranormal novella-length prequel about Garth, the human stepson of the werewolf pack leader. He always wanted to be a wolf but remained an outsider. I gave this five stars.

 

"He was such a boiling mess of impotent rage, shame, and longing, he hardly knew which was up. Couldn't think straight, couldn't see straight."

 

I received a complimentary kindle copy from Amazon. That did not change my opinion for this review.

Curse of the Alpha: Episodes 5 & 6: A Tarker's Hollow Serial (Curse of the Alpha Box-Set Book 3) by Tasha Black
Curse of the Alpha: Episodes 5 & 6 - Tas... Curse of the Alpha: Episodes 5 & 6 - Tasha Black

Curse of the Alpha: Episodes 5 & 6: A Tarker's Hollow Serial (Curse of the Alpha Box-Set Book 3) by Tasha Black is the conclusion to the series. It is a compelling book. I gave it five stars.

 

Ainsley is still coming to terms with her differences. It's becoming nice to think of them as a talent instead of a curse.

 

"She hurriedly climbed the rest of the way onto him and could swear that he was laughing, not just panting.

 

'Laugh it up, fuzzball. If we make it out of here alive, I am so going to whack you on the nose with a rolled up newspaper.'"

 

This book contains mature sexual content.

 

Ainsley has made a powerful enemy. She still needs to choose an alpha for Tarker's Hollow. One mystery was solved. Can she make the right choice for herself? For the town?
