New one review witch 2017

This collection of short stories wasn’t as horrifying as I was expecting, I’d recommend this for younger horror fans or those new to the genre. The majority of the stories were sci-fi/fantasy and very light on the gore.

There’s a huge variation in the length of stories in this collection, some are a couple of pages long and others about 15 (that’s a guess, I didn’t actually count!). As a rule, I much preferred the longer stories as the author had the chance to really unleash her imagination and give the reader something to get stuck in to, the shorter stories weren’t able to build the suspense quickly enough to get me hooked.

My favourite story in this collection was a clever twist on the Chinese Zodiac and a classic poem (I won’t give it away) – it was completely unexpected and a nod to one of my all-time favourite verses.

I could happily read an entire collection of short stories based on mythology by this author!

About the Author

Marie Krepps

I live in small town North Carolina and I enjoy writing adult novels of varying genres.

Music is a huge part of my life. It inspires me to write and there is always a song in my head and in my heart. Dreams also influence my work tremendously.

If I’m not writing an exciting story, I am certainly reading one! I like to escape in books to worlds beyond reality, and create my own worlds as well.

I’m a serious movie buff and I love a good fantasy, horror, or sci-fi film! In my spare time, I love watching anime, sewing costumes, gaming, and taking pictures.
