Good morning and welcome to this week’s edition of In the Books, featuring A Sudden Terror by Christina Isabel.
About the Book: A Horror Novelette featuring 3 disturbing tales that will freak you out, make you feel itchy and leave you feeling horrified!
No Eyes: A government project goes wrong when the surgeon hired to do a specific job takes it to the next level taking the eyes of anyone who doesn’t see things his way!
Highly Alarming: A rave party turns out to have the worst party favors ever —Slugs!
Panicked Heartbeats: Doctors try to play God with an old man after injecting him with a serum that makes him believe he is a cold-hearted killer of children.
My Review: This is a fast read and is perfect for a lunch break or to get away from things for a bit. Each story had their moments, but the thing that stuck out to me the most was how they reminded me of the old 50s and 60s B-rated movies I loved to watch as a kid.
My main complaint is with the first story’s pacing. It has a lot happen in a few short hours, but given it was written for the effect it’s forgivable as the ending is unexpected.
I thought the second and third stories are better paced and more chilling than the first, but all three are fun reads that are perfect for a Halloween read.
