House of Horrors, by Carole Gill is an author who seeks to bring back a style, similar to those of authors of the seventies. Back when movies staring Vincent Price, Christopher Lee and even as far back as Bela Lugosi! The horror is this tale was mild and implied more than described. As a matter of fact, not much was described at all!
The stories of House of Horrors fail to capture the true terror the word 'Horror' offers. In Better to Die, a grandfather and and granddaughter work a lighthouse that assists sailors and steers them to safety. Now that one- wow! AMAZING! The lure, then the surprise was perfect but it happened way too fast. The story felt rushed and that's crazy for a short story, but Zombie Winter...
Zombie Winter was a huge flop for me. The story just drops you in the middle of, not just a zombie attack, but evidently a mega Global Warming storm! Nothing set this story up and the way things happened, I laughed at the progression and almost felt let down- had it not been for the fact, the ebook was free. I didn't lose anything but time. The other stories were okay. They were easier to get through but the lack of detail in some was annoying. This author will tell an excellent story in one, then follow up with one that tosses out information instead of allowing the reader to flow through. It was off-putting.
I don't know if I'll be looking for anything by this author again, but I can say, the cover is TOT'S FABU! LOL My friends say that all the time! As an ebook, the HD work is so engrossing, I stare at it from time to time- catching a new detail in the eyes, the trees and the teeth! I love it! Sadly, a cover isn't enough to make the book. 📚
