LBy the end of the night not everyone will make it and those that do may wish they adn’tBONUS Also includes the disgusting short story The Peeling of Samuel Lloyd Collins. The Final WinterThis one was frustrating It was a really cool premise a group of people taking shelter in a British pub from a blizzard that was sweeping the world And something group of people taking shelter in a British pub from a blizzard that was sweeping the world And something lurked outside in the snow Then 23 s of the way in the reveal came and for me it just fell off a cliff The mystery of what was outside was a lot intriguing than the reveal itself Had great potential at the start but couldn t deliverThis started out great and I d settled myself itself Had great potential at the start but couldn t deliverThis started out great and I d Settled Myself For A Fast myself for a fast in one sitting read Sufficient gore and tense situations that kept me second guessing who the real good guysbad guys were Reminded me a lot of Stephen King s The Mist to be onest But then we it about the three uarters mark and I literally went WTH Models Dont Eat Chocolate Cookies happened The story slipped into silly mode and I found myself totally turned off I don t know maybe I expected too much from an apocalypticorror story but I felt this could ave been so much than what it turned out to be Comedy is not what I search for when choosing a orror story but comedy is what it morphed into It s like the author did this bang up job of setting up this dark tale and then totally dropped the ball I might try a second novel by Iain Rob Wright just because I liked the set up of the first Shalias Diary (Shalias Diary, half in The Final Winter but right now it s a mighty big IF The talent is there to produce a goodorror He certainly caught my attention at the start But I think this one got pushed through while still in need of a lot work in the developmental editing part of the writing process Had potential but didn t deliver I should probably Scruples Two have given it one star but decided to go with two only because of the good beginning For the author because I feel youave a lot of talent as a writer I d pull this one and rework it before any damage is done For potential readers probably not going to be the story you What Janie Found (Janie Johnson, hoped for when glancing through the blurb and those beginning pages This book was a nearly perfect apocalyptic tale where the end comes in the form of a worldwide snowstormIf the fact that it is snowing on every country in the world isn t freaky enough for you wait until you catch a glimpse of what else the stormas conjuredI really liked this book Once Wright introduced all of the players I didn t want to stop reading until I knew all of their fates So I read it in two sittingsDefinitely going to check out some of the author s work First published in May of 2011 British author Iain Rob Wright s debut novel The
