Halloween 2018: Nightlight Tales 2 by Anthony Renfro

*Book received in exchange for honest review*

It has been a long while since we looked at Anthony Renfro’s work. Consider me very sorry about it since its beem sitting in my inbox for at least a few months. However, such a fitting time to read an anthology of horror short stories. To keep things moving, I will link back to reviews for some of these that I have written about before. One thing is for sure is that you should head over and check out Anthony’s blog HERE.

The Headless Fountain Man

Fun fact: This story was inspired by a picture that I posted on Avenue of Daydreams.

There is something so fun about The Headless Fountain Man. I would have to say that he nailed it on the head with the “monster” in this one. Not to mention the main character is called Kim so it could be my biggest nightmare. The details and description for this short story is really well done. I had this slight feeling of one of the scenes from Gerald’s Game in there. It kind of creeped my out and also explains why I don’t normally take human figures or sculptures often. 100% awesomeness for this short story on all angles especially for creativity. I may have taken the picture to inspire it but it sure went off in an unexpected direction.

Fear of the Scarecrow

Revenge, scarecrows, incantations, pumpkins, creatures and some bloody moments pretty much sums up Fear of the Scarecrow. Its a story about revenge and how far to go for it. But its even more than that because there are layers to this story more on a physical level as the events and revenge gets more intense with how it turns outs. I’ve read this one before and rereading it is still pretty fun.

It Sleeps At Dawn – Review

The Dead of Winter – Review

Gluten-Free

Unexpected is how I’d describe this story. I think this highlights why I like reading Anthony’s short stories a lot. I’ve talked about his creativity before but I wouldn’t have imagined on using gluten as a central way to commit suicide. Extreme, gruesome and very well described. Gluten-Free is one of the shorter short stories but one that is fully engaging because of how its presented. Its unique and that is what makes it stand out for myself.

The Lot – Review

The Dragon

In our current landscape, technology is everywhere. A lot of people ignore the horrors that come with it. Of course, we’ve also been seeing a lot of movies that reflect this especially with the new wave of screenlife horror and thrillers. The Dragon mimics something of the dangers of when something like Alexa is a lot more sinister. Its clever to use technology as the background but what I like a lot about it is the vivid description of how things go down. Its great to be able to picture every moment that happens.

Webs

I was wondering when spiders would be the central horror in one of the stories. A completely fresh setting compared to previous stories also gives it a nice little change. At the same time, the story paces itself quickly and takes a quick change for a fairly bloody turn of events. Using curses and spider webs and looking for ancient idols being the center makes for a fun adventure. It only focuses on the main event but could definitely be something that I’d read a full story about from the whole research to the horror in the cave or tomb or whatnot.

Gas Station of the Dead

One of the longer (is not longest) story of this collection is a story that comes back to what I think Anthony does a great job at: Zombies. I’ve always been more of a fan of the short stories, this one is more fleshed out. It gives us a more complete story with the main character. Its definitely not a bad thing and this one packs a lot of the hero and having the positivity to move forward and be smart about how to get out of each situation. It is a tamer novel as a while but with a commendable end goal for our main character as we watch him hatch his plan while not exactly knowing what exactly his plan is until we get there. I can’t say its my favorite mostly because if we were looking at commendable characters from this collection, Mike Beem Chronicles, which is a series that I’ve read all of and features as the final four stories does an incredible job at with both building a memorable main character. I guess this one fell short a little for myself.

Mike Beem Chronicles:

A Zombie Christmas – Review
A Zombie Christmas 2 – Review
Flesh of the Zombies – Review
Zombie Beach – Review

Overall…

Nightlight Tales 2 shows a diversity in what Anthony Renfro can create. While he has an obvious love for writing about zombies, there are other aspects of horror that he dives into using different avenues to share the depths of his creativity. This collection is definitely a fun read and is packed with page turning stories, which are perfect for the Halloween season or any horror craving you may be having.

Review

The Finest Supermarket in Kabul is best described as three intertwined stories. What works really well is choosing these characters because one of them is a Parliamentarian, giving the readers an inside scoop of Kabul and the political struggles there. At the same time, having the outside eyes be the opposite side of an American journalist which also gives us the outside perspective while the final one acts somewhat more of a middle ground. They live there for longer duration and know the lay of the land but is still an expat. Their stories definitely are carefully intertwined as the bombing occurs as each person is at a different location and they all react differently but in their timelines still manage to brush past one of the characters in the process. It gives a continuity and fluidity to a thought with taking the time to add that detail.

The stories itself are engaging and intriguing especially as there is a different perspective so the landscape of the lead-up to the actual bombing event also is well-paced. Perhaps, because of this, it has the tightly knit story (or stories) making it a page turner as there isn’t time to add fluff in the middle, and that is fine because the stories being told doesn’t really need it. The story itself is as direct as its characters. At the same time, what makes it a great read is the descriptive nature used it, highlighting the innocent and the unknown and the helplessness for all those involved and the uncertainty of whether they are as well. On another hand, the three stories intertwine here and emphasize a further point that everyone has a different point of view and will be caught up in a different way whether it is physically being there, witnessing its aftermath or even from the sidelines. There’s a lot of thought in the details in The Finest Supermarket in Kabul and that makes all the elements put together a worthwhile one to check out.

Book Review: Annie’s 1st Break by Willee Amsden

Getting back into some light easy reading to clear stuff off my Kindle before jumping back into some books that I had gotten over the past year. I’m pretty horrible after the whole PC debacle earlier this year so things get pushed back. Trust me when I say that I’m working hard for the rest of the year.

Annie’s 1st Break (Annie McCauley #1)
by: Willee Amsden

annie's 1st break

Genre: Romantic Comedy

Look out New York City! Ms. Rayanne “Annie” McCauley from little old Mesa View, Texas has set her sights on being a high fashion model. Despite her humble beginnings in the Mesa View Mobile Home Park, hot tempered Annie thinks she can make it all the way to the cover of Women’s Wear Daily (as long as she follows her own rules).  She may also snag the heart of sexy Tomi Di Ponti, the CEO of Di Ponti Cosmetics and Fashions, but not without a lot of trouble from her arch rival, Brittany Carstairs, another alumnus of the trailer park and a woman who never met a nasty trick she didn’t use. When it looks like things can’t get any worse, along comes Luther Grolsch, handsome, dangerous and possibly the most annoying man Annie ever met. – Goodreads

Its been a while that I’ve felt such indifference for a book or a story before. Annie’s 1st Break is pretty average. It stomps itself a little worse for being a very predictable and generic romantic comedy. Its like watching a Hollywood romantic comedy that lacks the charms and goes through the motions. That might sound harsh but I also have been in a romantic mood of sorts and this should tug at my heart strings. The deal with this one is that nothing exactly is wrong other than that in some ways. For one, the writing is adequate. Its decent enough. There’s nothing flawed with that. There are some parts that felt a little weird as I was reading it but nothing bad.

I can’t say whether its just the story layout and the execution that was the main fault. However, this also lead to the characters being a little ridiculous. For myself, it feels like I say this with every story now that while this one isn’t erotic (which is a nice change in pace), Annie McCauley’s character never makes me want to be behind her actions. She makes some pretty odd choices. While I get the appeal of this handsome rich guy that would break her own set of rules, she is also presented with the bodyguard option who seems to be more caring even if more un-serious. Perhaps its because I’ve never made the conventional choices in my love life that I can’t seem to relate to why she has this fascination over her boss Tomi that I thought wasn’t a great guy to begin with, who has his own character flaws and much of it has to do with the fact that her trust in his values stand on shaky grounds to begin with. But then, her feelings for Tomi is what constantly makes her character on the verge of breaking her rules and turns her into a victim of her situation, essentially mostly created by herself if not facilitated by someone else.

The story is meant to be odd in the screwball comedy and in the beginning, it works well enough but the story falls apart so fast and grows so thin that its hard to give it a better rating or in this case, want to keep reading more of the series.

EXCERPT

Chapter 1

The Elephant

At Westside Dental Practice in Cambridge, it was quitting time.

“Oh, nearly forgot.” Finlay Duff pulled an envelope from his jacket pocket and thrust it roughly towards Lucienne Langbrook. “This came for you. Hand delivered.”

Luci thought her Practice Partner looked a little out of sorts. “What’s wrong?”

“What is wrong is that your root canal patient left without paying. A full apicoectomy. That’s the best part of a grand, that is.”

“Ah. I see. Blimey, he was a gruff sort. Even before the pain and general torture.” Luci tore the letter out of the envelope with her fingers which annoyed her Partner further. Finlay always used a letter opener, the handle of which was monogrammed with his initials. She’d given him that as a birthday present, from the website What Do You Give The Smug Git Who Has Everything?

“Come to think of it, Finlay, my patient didn’t even thank me.”

“It’s not funny. May I remind you that we have spent a fortune doing this surgery up. And every penny of interest that we—”

“Oh my God.” Lucienne’s fingers flew to her mouth.

“What? What?”

The letter shook in her hand as she read it quickly again, then held it out at the end of a stiff arm. Finlay took the letter and began to murmur his way through.

Dear Lucienne

It is with enormous regret that I have to inform you of Eddie’s death. As you may know, he was in Botswana on a contract with Lucara Diamonds, and one evening on his way back to the hotel, his car ran into an elephant.

The letter shook a little in Finlay’s hand.

“Oh my sainted aunt, you cannot be laughing. Fin, tell me you’re not laughing at this.”

“I’m not! Of course, I’m not.” Finlay’s Glaswegian accent always amplified in moments of vehemence. “It’s just a nerve thing. I’m like this at funerals. I am.”

Luci grabbed the letter from him. “Well, there’s not going to be a funeral. And if there was, you certainly wouldn’t be invited. Look! She’s going out there. Her. To cremate Edward.”

“Where? Who?”

“Susan. Mrs Langbrook Mark Two. She’s going to Botswana.” Lucienne flicked her hand away from her own body and towards a far-off continent, like Susan was an imaginary fly to be propelled. “It is the incumbent, you see, the present wife, who buries the husband.”

“Whit? They’re not bringing the body back? How’s Ed going to feel about that?” Finlay tried to arrange his amusement into a frown.

“Oh you’re concerned, are you, about Ed’s wishes? Come off it. You always loathed him. Anyway, it’s what he wanted. Not to be repatriated, in such a… circumstance. Apparently. You know Edward, every administrative eventuality will have been planned for.”

“Give me back the letter, I didn’t finish.”

Lucienne looked at her watch. “It’s just gone six thirty. I’m going to lock up. My God.” She pushed her hand through her blonde streaks and held it there for a moment, at the temple, where the grey crept to the fray once more. Then she left the letter on the luxurious orange leather of the Aston treatment chair – Finlay’s personal favourite – and he reclined on it now to finish Susan Langbrook’s letter.

…accidents are actually the most common cause of death in that country. Not all animal related, obviously, but elephants are a constant hazard. The temperature drops rapidly in the evening and the tarmac is the warmest place for the beasts. Eddie wasn’t driving particularly quickly, the Botswana Police Service said (from the tyre marks) but all the same, an object of that size…

Lucienne Langbrook checked that the drug cabinets were closed properly and set the new alarm with her son Scott’s birth date. The letter said that Scott had been told about his father’s accident, but Luci had not heard from her son since he first arrived in Libya. She’d had a text, saying “Landed” and that was it. Was he in touch with Susan though? Oh dear God, was he? A little hook of pain hitched onto Lucienne’s heart. Both her loves in Africa, one dead love – Edward – who was now actually dead, and the other, her son, who was both missing and being missed terribly. Had Susan Langbrook heard from Scott though?

Lucienne could hear Finlay’s regulation brogues on the newly fitted engineered oak. She wanted to fall down, simply, on the floor and wait for something better. Finlay gestured at her torso. “C’mon Luci. Rip that Velcro.”

She took off her crisp, pale blue dental tunic. It had arrived just that morning and her Partner had wanted to tell her how much better that choice than the bottle green she’d considered. Finlay wanted to tell her how much she suited this tunic, the short sleeves showing off her perfect arms, the unnecessary but charming penny collar for the lady dentist. He cramped his toes up inside his shoes to banish his inappropriate responses. Anyway, Lucienne Langbrook wouldn’t stand for a compliment. Finlay knew that he ought to be ashamed of his skin-deep assessments, when she’d just that moment got news of her ex-husband’s brutal passing. Ought to be ashamed, but wasn’t. “Hey, not a mark on it. Your shirt, Luci. Must have been a good day. At some point.”

He threw her tunic into the laundry and got their coats. “I’m sorry about Ed. I am really. Sincerely. I do struggle with certain aspects of being a grown up but I—”

“You hated him from the very first.”

“Lucienne, please.”

“It’s alright, I did too, in the end. I hated Edward. Hated him and loved him. An elephant for fuck’s sake.” She looked up at her best friend and Practice Partner, eyes ashine with coping. “Now it really is, the end.”

REVIEW

Just is somewhat of a hard novel to review, probably the one where I’m having the most conflicted feelings about in a while. I’m always a little cautious when going into romantic thrillers. Romance itself has some blurred lines in the modern novel sense and thrillers are just tough to nail down. I’m not sure that Just nails down both of these areas or creates a good balance per se. However, despite a slow start to the novel which frankly did begin a little confusing as it jumps a little timeline (unless I missed something and just lost track), as the ideas of the thriller solidifies and the pieces slide together by around the middle, the second half takes a nice turn that almost does make up for the slow beginning.

On one hand, I think that the thriller elements does truly come together in the second half effectively. The pacing definitely could be better. But the setting it uses and the whole idea when we see the whole picture does work out. However, the romance element here is also not completely convincing. On many levels, this book reminded me a little of reading The Casual Vacancy. The characters are quite flawed so they don’t quite have you connecting or backing with any of them in particular. However, their flaws for some of the characters particularly the mother Lucienne and her associate/best friend, Finlay is the ones I thought worked the best here. Their flaws made them feel genuine.

There are some good ideas here and the setting here works overall. It starts off slow and the pacing is a tad slow but give it time and the second half does deliver on the thrills.

Murder on the Mind (Jeff Resnick Mystery #1) by L.L. Bartlett

Murder on the Mind
(Jess Resnick Mystery #1)
by: L.L. Bartlett

murder on the mind

Jeff Resnick hardly knew his well-heeled half-brother. But after suffering a fractured skull in a vicious mugging, he reluctantly accepts the fact that he has a long and brutal recovery to face—and his closest of kin can provide him with the time and place to do it.

Now, Jeff is haunted by unexplained visions of a heinous crime—a banker, stalked, killed, and eviscerated like a ten-point buck. When Matt Sumner’s murder is discovered, a still-recovering Jeff realizes this was what he had seen. Jeff must not only convince himself of his new-found psychic ability, but also his skeptical brother Richard Alpert. Since Sumner was Richard’s banker, both brothers have a stake in finding out what happened. With Richard’s reluctant help, Jeff’s investigation leads him to Sumner’s belligerent family and hard-nosed business associates, none of whom want him snooping around. – Goodreads

I’m pretty sure that I picked up Murder on the Mind, the first book in what is a seven book mystery series, for free on Amazon. It might be in the free books or something or another a few years back. As I clear out the backlog, I finally got around to it. Mystery and suspense novels are my thing. I truly do enjoy ones that get me at the edge of my seat and keep me guessing and wondering the whole time through. Its quite the mixed bag when it comes to Murder on the Mind. On one hand, there is a nice twist to learning about this Jeff Resnick and how he believes he’s gotten these special powers that help him have this sense of when there’s something suspicious about a location or a person or whatnot. Its nice to let the readers learn as he learns so it really starts from zero.

At the same time, Jeff Resnick is somewhat of an odd and extreme character. Perhaps a tad reckless but then he also earns a bit of sympathy for all the unlucky things that has lead him to this point in time. At least in the beginning. We soon realize as we head to the end that the slower paced mystery here works not so much as a page turner for the mystery but rather it was a look at his life and it doubles as a way that this has tied up some loose ends in his life that has been dangling for too long, like mending the relationship with his brother or being okay with asking for help. Its gives someone the chance to reevaluate the change that he could take with the mugging that got him this point in time to have some other opportunity open up using the skills he had in his previous job as an insurance investigator. The past insurance investigator angle is good and the learning about these new paranormal/instinctive abilities are also an intriguing twist.

My main issue with Murder on the Mind is that this like most first book in series feels a lot like a book to set up. There’s a lot of filler things and its fairly slow. There is some investigation and if it did follow the path of keeping a lot more mystery apparent in its pacing, it would have been more effective. Except the set up here gives you (like what I mentioned before), development of Jeff Resnick. his weaknesses and his unpredictable and abstract feelings when something is wrong. We see that he can be calm and collected and has great deductive skills. The one thing Jeff Resnick has for himself is that he feels real because he gets pain (quite frequently) but he also is clever and daring so it makes it technically an entertaining read. But for one reason or another, it took a while to get really absorbed into the book. Maybe its just some parts felt unnecessary and the pacing was what made it not so engaging.

Don’t get me wrong. Murder on the Mind is not a bad book, in fact its pretty average and has some cool ideas and some entertaining suspenseful moments. Even the mystery itself seems rather twisty and the end game is nice to see it unveiled. Its the process of getting there that causes most of the lackluster moments but at least the stage is set now and it looks like this could be a fun one to keep checking out. I’m not sure if I will personally, maybe eventually but not right away.

Book Review: Something Great (Something Great #1) by M. Clarke

Something Great (Something Great #1)
By: M. Clarke

Something Great

Fresh out of college, life was predictable and comfortable for Jeanella. She had the strength of her friends, the security of her job, and she was dating a reliable man; it was all smooth sailing. That was until one night, when she met someone who made her feel things she’d never felt before—dangerous, heart pounding, breathless heat.

Never imagining she would see him again, Jeanella has no idea what to do when fate steps in and thrusts Maxwell Knight into her life, just as things were beginning to change around her. When she lands her dream job and travels to New York for Fashion Week, can she focus on her career instead of on Maxwell?

Will she ignore all the danger signs and jump straight into his arms; or would she miss out on the chance of finding something great? – Goodreads

As I work through the books (mostly free deals) on my Kindle to work on some saving habits and spending less habits, the next on the list was this one. To be honest, I haven’t been in much of a contemporary romance mood but then they usually are such easy reads that I couldn’t pass it up with the low energy levels I’ve been doing. Ironically, Something Great was not something great. I mean, look at the tagline up there, “She didn’t know what she was missing..until he found her.” Oh and believe me, the main guy here, Max is a pretentious rich guy. There is a difference in being self-confident and being pretentious and while the girl here, Jeanella seems to view him as self-confident, I couldn’t quite buy into it. With that said, half of Something Great already dropped to Something Good as we got to know this Max fellow more.

However, luckily, while I wasn’t a big fan of Jeanella’s choice in Max and how she changed her views so quickly and such, her character did start off rather on the right track. Her character’s heart is in the right place as she holds onto some of her values. But then, she also has some parts of her that are my absolute pet peeves when it comes to these novels. The main thing being that the moment any girl sees a hot guy, she just burns up and forgets everything and just wants to have sex with them. I’m not sure there is any enjoyment in it. I get the nervousness of seeing someone you are attracted in and Jeanella does have those moments but it is quickly masked by her desire to go to bed with him regardless of in the beginning when he is just a sexy stranger or when they get into a relationship and she get mad at him. Wanting to sleep with someone doesn’t measure love, at least not to me. So you can already see where Something Great falls apart for me.

All in all, I think I’m just not the audience for these books anymore. I sometimes find some that work well within my standards and I don’t know, create a man that I find is desirable within what I would think has those characteristics and makes me feel like its romance. Many times, it just feels like there’s a whole lot of lust in the way any scenario is described and that doesn’t link to what love is. If only authors didn’t confuse these two emotions so much, it would make for great contemporary romance. I guess, I’ll just keep hoping for the next one to hit the target better. Something Great was just something okay.

Synopsis

Angel Svabodina is a rookie forensic anthropologist, enjoying the beginning of her new career. That joy comes crashing down when she figures out the skeleton she’s working on is not human and then it vanishes.

She throws herself fully into the case without thinking about the parties involved, a psychopomp associate, and paranormal mafia families made up of vampires and werewolves—or the consequences.

When she sees there’s no avoiding the inevitable, Angel has to suck it up and work with the werewolves to solve the case but can she trust them?

Werewolves and witches are in a centuries-old feud, but that doesn’t stop the shivers running down her spine from one wolf in particular. What’s more, nothing comes for free, including information. To get what she needs from the werewolf don, Angel has to meet with the fae queen. Can she meet her without repercussions and solve the case?

A magical mystery in more than one sense of the word, this beautifully woven tale will charm you more than an ethereal fae.” – Liliyana Shadowlyn, The Faerie Review
