4 out of 5 stars!

Let’s start right off and talk about this cover! It is absolutely incredible!

Now I know the skin of a book isn’t the star of the show, the true treasure lies in the guts of the read but you can’t deny that a masterpiece on the outside isn’t the perfect eye candy every book worm adores.

When I opened the pages of Hunger Pangs I had no idea that this was Scott’s debut collection. I really should have done my research better, but honestly for this to be his first collection out into the world I am very impressed.

Scott’s stories are unique and raw. His writing is smooth and consumable. Usually when I read a collection there are a couple that really, really stand out or that you may enjoy more than others. This collection I had a hard time pin pointing my favorite. I enjoyed them all for different reasons! I use the saying “like children, you love them all just as much, only in different ways.” You can’t possibly pick a favourite.

Hunger Pangs is a collection worth getting lost in, transporting out of reality into these dark, bizarre, frightening worlds…. that is if you think you can handle it of course.

I can’t thank Scott enough for sending me an e-copy to read and review, obviously I will need to pick up a physical copy as soon as I can to add to my collection…..I mean….that COVER! But when I saw that Hunger Pangs was on audible I downloaded it right away knowing it would help me get to this review so much sooner, so I can also say the audiobook was done very well, worth checking out.

Hunger Pangs will leave a lasting, haunting effect!

4 out of 5 stars!

Photo taken from my Bookstagram:

It’s hard to review a collection of short stories without giving to many details away but man this collection by Syon was great!

Each and every one of these 5 stories were so different from the next and well written! Syon’s writing was detailed, smooth and had the perfect balance between storyline and character details.

Buried with the Night are those fast paced, mind bending, tricky stories that end off with a huge cliff hanger. Leaving you wanting more not only from those stories themselves but from Syon in general.

Although I can’t go into to much detail for each individual story. I can say I do believe my favorite was Curtis, which also happened to be the very first story in this collection. It was my perfect kind of messed up minds! (to read anyhow). I was instantly consumed after reading Curtis and looked forward to the rest!

I would highly recommend this collection and I can’t thank Syon enough for sending me a copy to read and review. I look forward to reading more of his work in the future!

4 out of 5 stars!

Interesting stories!

I enjoy Urban Legends! I find it fascinating to hear stories from all around the world, unique to that culture. Dimas did a great job sharing these stories with the world.

Who’s There is something I would call comfy, cozy horror.

I didn’t find these stories to be overwhelmingly terrifying, you know those reads that leave you crawling in your skin, keep you up at night and looking over your shoulder every where you go? I found these horror tales to be gentle yet very enjoyable and easily consumed . Perfect for a horror newbie, someone looking to dip their toes into the dark fiction world or someone looking to learn more about dark tales from around the world, such as myself.

Although these stories are not overly terrifying they will twist and play with your mind, keeping you on your toes.

Dimas Rio did provide me with an e-copy to read and review, however when I saw it was on audio-book I wanted to give it a go. I was pleasantly surprised with the audio version. The narrator did a great job of bringing the eerie feels of the stories together.

My question to you is …. Who’s There? Are you gutsy enough to find out?

Thank you so much Dimas for sending me an e-copy to read and review. I am intrigued and look forward to more of your work.

4 out of 5 stars! (for the whole collection)

First off I have to start by saying how proud I am of Nick! Nick is a fellow BookTuber and it’s always exciting to see people whom I consider friends making their dreams become a reality. Now to all my readers out there, although Nick is a friend this will not stop me from providing an honest review.

Graymatter is a fun collection! and by that I mean dark, gruesome, spooky but loads of fun. Some great concepts here! These short stories are those type of stories narrated by the main character that end with a big cliffhanger….leaving you wanting more. Oh and I can’t forget each has a great moral to the story as well.

While reading this collection I felt as if I was chilling with Nick while he told me some truly eerie stories. Nick has a way of writing different characters and really bringing their personality traits forward. For example one story is about a dognapper, he makes a living taking other people dogs and than just hangs at home until the owner puts out a reward. Once they do he jumps on it claiming his prize. The guy is an honest dirt-bag and I was appalled the whole time I read this story! Honestly, if you can feel those emotions while reading that’s when you know the author did something right. These are things you just don’t forget even after finishing the read.

There is one tiny negative that pulled my star rating back on this horror collection. Although an editor was hired there seems to be a lot that was missed. Spelling mistakes, grammar, repetitiveness and some sentences weren’t even proper English. Although I can understand these mistakes as everyone is human and while the author is pouring their thoughts and passions out onto paper it takes a lot of time to make the story crisp and clean. Multiple read through’s alone, even before editing (if it’s an option, which isn’t the case for most indie authors). That being said even after taking these steps and even hiring an editor a lot was missed. Although I am not one to talk negative about others or tell them how to do their job, I really feel whoever did edit this collection for Nick did not provide the service he paid for and I hope this won’t deter people from picking it up. Editing can really hurt an author! Some people won’t even finish a read or give it an awful review solely on the editing.

All in all honestly this collection was great! Again, Nick had great concepts, awesome characters and not to forget your mind and emotions will be stirred. I say it’s totally worth giving it a go. Also if you would like to check out my video review on my BookTube channel that would be awesome!

Thank you so much Nick for sending me a copy to read and review. I am so proud to own a physical copy and to have it sitting on my shelves. I can’t wait to see what else you have for us in the future.
