Toward the Brink, The Apocalyptic Survival Series by Craig McDonough, snatched my attention from the moment I opened the newsletter! If you've been with me a while, you know I'm a sucker for a good looking book cover. This one caught me instantly...
If there is any message to take away from this movie, it is to never follow a complete stranger, met in a bar, to a party into what appears to be the backwoods! How could these guys have been so stupid? This is the movie that is called Siren.
Siren is about a bunch of guys looking for a good time, to celebrate Jonah's final night as single. After following a stranger to a mansion in the woods, looking for a good time, they enter and celebrate a night of imminent debauchery... but it doesn't happen. Instead, they rescue a seemingly imprisoned woman and run. Sadly, the danger they intended to flee was with them all along.
Two friends, Jonah and his brother, the Best Man, end up in the midst of a cruel entertainer, and a fabled creature that says in its cutest voice: "I like you."

A long time ago, I used to hate short stories. I felt they were a rip-off, because I felt cut off. Just as it seemed the story should have truly taken off, it was over. It used to make me mad; I kid you not. For years, I didn't purchase short stories, but that didn't happen with this awesome tale!
The Product, by Bruce Memblatt, was creepy! It told of Robin, a woman torn at the loss of her boyfriend. Though they weren't a long-term couple, Robin shared how deeply in love she was with Shane. She loved everything about him and let the man of a company (DMG) that she wanted him back. She explained how her life was meaningless without the love of her life. So, with DNA belonging to Shane, a new Shane was made. A machine, a replica and an illusion.
The Product was a sharing of what could result from our selfishness, in a time where letting go is viewed as a life-sentence. The Product was written well and kept me engaged. I felt bad for both Robin and Shane but also fearful, because nothing was going right!
I loved this read, and will most definitely look for more by Memblatt!

As with most books that catch my eye, I wanted this because of the cover. I read and was enticed by the blurb, but oh what a lovely book sleeve! What made me want to read Unchained, by Noel Jesse Heikkinen, was the opening line, that went along with what my pastor at church is speaking on:
"Often when people follow Jesus, they feel more guilty instead of more free."
And so I read...
Chris Purnell, a man who’s no novice to movie production, had a vision. Having once been a cinematographer, he knew exactly what he wanted to see in the making of Night Kaleidoscope. With a very small budget, he and Grant McPhee filmed the entire movie in one week, taking a gory vampire tale beyond creative measures.
The story tells of Fion, a down on his luck paranormal investigator, on the prowl for a vamp couple. Killing savagely for as much sport as dinner, they prey on the drugged, the promiscuous, and the beautiful. When they lose one of their victims, they are compelled to hunt her down, but they realize, much too late, she's approached an enemy of theirs.
