Review by: Christine Rains on Sep. 25, 2013 :
Passing Time is a wonderfully written collection of dark and eerie tales. Each story has its own way of gripping your soul. Some are short and intense, and others lure you down a long twisted path. You're left wondering about your own mortality, what you would do for love, and what terrifies you the most. As a writer, I was particularly paralyzed by "The Devil's Song."

My two favorite stories were "Expiration Date" and "The Vegas Screamer." The first takes place in a future where cloning is possible. You never have to lose someone you love. The second frightening tale is about a serial killer that has a chilling collection. Though each story has a strong and unique voice, this one stood out with its Stephen King feel.

I can't wait to read more from Ellie Garratt.

Review by: Cherie Reich on Sep. 25, 2013 :
Ellie Garratt's Passing Time contains tense and enjoyable horror stories.

Each short story sends a little chill down the reader's spine and has a nice twist that is sometimes foreseen and other times not.

I enjoyed the moral of "Passing Time" in how we shouldn't let time just pass us by. "Expiration Date" had a delightful blend of horror with science fiction. "The Devil's Song" is a writer's worst nightmare. "Luna Black" was perhaps my favorite story, and I loved how vampires and insurance featured in it. "Dining in Hell" seemed like a story that could come right out of a Stephen King novel. "The Vegas Screamer" has a unique twist on a serial killer. The office can be killer in "Eating Mr. Bone." I loved how the supernatural comes to life in "Land of the Free." And the last story, "The Letter" reminds the reader to be very careful what they wish for.

Overall, Passing Time by Ellie Garratt is a nice collection of horror stories, and I look forward to reading more of Garratt's work.
