Hello Avid Readers. Today, I’m sharing my thoughts about Life Sentence: Two Tales of the Living Dead by Kelley Armstrong.

Sometimes, when I read a book I don’t write a full review, I just write a paragraph or two to publish on Amazon and Goodreads; especially if it’s a book with thousands of reviews already. But I want to build up my blog to be THE place to go to for paranormal romance fans, so I should really post those smaller reviews on here too, right?

So with that in mind, on to my thoughts about…

Life Sentence: Two Tales of the Living Dead by Kelley Armstrong

A duo of zombie tales by best selling author Kelley Armstrong.

LIFE SENTENCE
As other Cabals look to vampires for the cure to mortality, Daniel Boyd sets his sights on the “other” undead: zombies. Of course, finding volunteers for his experiments proves a bit of a challenge, but when a man only has six months to live, he’s willing to break a few rules.

LAST STAND
In the aftermath of a zombie virus outbreak, a troop of soldiers fights to save their people from extinction. But there’s something a little different about this particular group of survivors…

Two Short Stories Of Urban Fantasy Horror That Felt Like Full Novels

Kelley Armstrong is a new-to-me author but I was blown away by her ability to draw me in and keep me hooked in so few pages.

Both of these short stories – Life Sentence and Last Stand – had characters that felt real and believable, the world was fleshed out enough to come alive in my mind, both of the plots developed at a good pace and even had surprising twists that caught me off guard. I think that it is the tell of a talented author to make you so engrossed that you forget that you’re reading a short story rather than a novel.

I will definitely be reading more of Ms Armstrong’s work, I’m looking forward to seeing what she can accomplish in a full length novel. 😉

I’ve been telling stories since before I could write. My earliest written efforts were disastrous. If asked for a story about girls and dolls, mine would invariably feature undead girls and evil dolls. All efforts to make me produce “normal” stories failed. Today, I continue to spin tales of monsters—both real and fantastical–while safely locked away in my writing cabin.
