Review: Levana's Wish

Levana's Wish Levana's Wish by Susi Moore
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a decent short read. It's only a five minute read, but sometimes that's all you want.
People underestimate the difficulty in getting a short story right. You have to make your characters and story grow all within a very short amount of time, but also not make it feel crammed. It was done very well in this short.
It's quite different to what I would normally read. A romantic horror of sorts if I had to categorise it, but the author asked if I would take a look in exchange for an honest review so I thought it worth a go.
I don't want to go into any detail on the story because it is so short and I don't want to ruin it.
I would say if you've got five mins spare or want a quick read, then go and check it out.
I think you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Review: The Rain Dancers

The Rain Dancers The Rain Dancers by Greg F. Gifune
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

I always enjoy Gifunes writing. He is a very good story teller and even in parts of a story that aren't particularly scary, he has this eerie feel about him. You can almost sense the darkness in the tale.
This was a decent story, but not as good as some of the others I've read from him. Mainly because I guessed the outcome very early on. I won't go into that as I don't want to ruin it.
This is worth a go if you fancy a quick read, but if you want to sample some of Gifunes stronger work then I would highly recommend The Bleeding Season.
