  • The Doll on Dec. 23, 2018

    What a wonderful short story! This book was recommended to me by someone who loves horror stories, and it was not a disappointment. The combination of religion / magic, small children and dolls - why are dolls so scary? - makes this a pretty creepy story. So, if you are looking for a small, scary story, this is the one for you.
  • O Beijo on Dec. 24, 2018

    Este conto é muito interessante e intrigante, pena que seja tão pequeno. Quero saber mais, porque é que tudo parou? Porque é que algumas pessoas não foram afetadas? Afinal, o que raio se passa em Lisboa? Ahhhhhh... preciso de saber mais :D Com isto dito, vou em busca de outras histórias desta autora.
  • The Outcast (Dork vs Geek ) on Jan. 27, 2019

    Funny short story with very relatable characters. The author as a very light and fun way of writing everyday stuff. I liked it and went on a search for more books by this author!
  • A Thousand Tears on Dec. 25, 2019

    This is a very nice - but sad- story, well written and straight to the point. It show us that, sometimes, our own eyes can fool us and rage and impulsivity take us nowhere.
  • The Missing Penises on Dec. 26, 2019

    This is quite a good story! I like that idea of a man being chopping off penises of cheating men (ah ah ;) )! I can totally see this book becoming an episode of 'Criminal Minds'. Even with that twist in the end, we know that 'The Penis Chopper' will never be forgotten!
  • The Attic on Dec. 27, 2019

    The reader in me couldn't be more happy with this book: zombies and the occasional 'Doctor Who' reference... Oh boy! This short story reminded me a lot of 'The Walking Dead' right at the beginning (you know... when TWD was still a great show!) when they show us the story of Morgan and his little boy. But this story is very different... apparently people can become zombies when attacked by animals and zombies appear to be a little smart... like they have some kind of muscle memory that makes them hunt for the people they loved. I really hoped for a different end... that somehow, 'The Doctor' (David Tennant - my favorite, of course) would show up and rescue the boy. But the end that the author wrote makes a lot more sense.
  • Survival Instincts on Dec. 27, 2019

    Ok, this book was upsetting... Overall, the story was nice, though was very repetitive at some points, but, in order for me to actually feel a connection to the girl, I kinda needed more information. Not only about their story as a couple, but as Kyle as a person. Which are his reasons? Does he have reasons or is he just a serial killer? Even so, it took a year of relationship and a proposal to trigger the killer in him... Why? I have questions!!!
  • The Dangerous Deed on Dec. 29, 2019

    This was my least favorite short story, by this author, so far. It kinda seems that we are reading the beginning of a very promising book, but then just stops... and you want to know what's going on next, but there is no more story. With that said, I really enjoy Andre' Mwansa's writing and I will keep reading his books.
  • The Perfect Gift on Dec. 29, 2019

    This was an amazing short story! I really, really, enjoyed it. We follow Jake, as he carefully chooses presents to his friends, that turn out to be a little... how can i say this... well, let's call them 'eccentric'. Afterall, we think that we know people around us... but do we know them really?
  • Cursed on Dec. 31, 2019

    What a nice book! I found this story quite different from the fantasy that I usually read. A Queen that is also a Dragon... that's new! This book is very well written, although when Agniss joins the gang the reading is way more difficult (english is my second language), very 'straight to the point' and overall very refreshing. Now, I'm on the look for other books by this author.
