Souls Of Darkness, A Book Review

Back in November, I was given the opportunity to review "Souls Of Darkness" by Damon Rathe. I am a big fan of thrillers and slightly spooky reads so I was more than happy to get a free book to review along that genre. I have to be honest and say that I wasn't all that excited though about the format I'd be reading it in. I am sooooooooo not an e-book fan which is what i got in this case. Having said that, let me say it's not the publisher's fault I got it that way. They had no way of knowing that I am probably the last person on the planet without a Kindle or other e-reader. I just HATE reading books on a regular computer. Simply because you can lose your place quite easily if the computer crashes, you hit the wrong button, etc.

I agreed to do the review though so I downloaded the book like a good girl. For the next 2 and a half hours, you couldn't have pried me away from the computer whether I liked reading books on it or not! The book is REALLY good! I totally forgot I even had a preference on how I read a book!

"Souls Of Darkness" is a collection of 15 short stories by 3 different authors. The central theme of all the stories is the darkness that dwells within us all in one form or another. Be it a ghostly story or a true to life one, each story is written in descriptive and downright spooky fashion! I had chill bumps through most of it!

Unfortunately, the time of year I was asked to review it made it hard for me to incorporate among the holidays. The Christmas holidays are full of love, light and cheerfulness and I just couldn't make it fit. So this review is a bit late in coming as far as being a potential Christmas gift but if you're looking for something to read or know someone else who is, I highly recommend this book. Especially if you like to put a little scare in your day.

Don't like thriller's? That's okay, Fishcake Publications also has other books you may be interested in. They offer them at very reasonable prices too! So whether you read on an e-reader, a smart phone or a computer screen, check out what's available through Fishcake. I think you'll like them a great deal! If you're a writer, you might also consider submitting your work with them. As they say "if you've taken the time to write it, then people should get a chance to read it"


I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
