Book Review
This is my first read by the author and I have to say I was pleasantly surprised as I wasn't quite sure what to expect. This particular book is a collection of short stories that drive you from one emotion to the next seamlessly. Different lengths, different tones and elements, but all engaging and meaningful. I think the author did a great job of delivering strong, vivid and entertaining tales. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to be shaken up a bit. Get your copy here and don't forget to leave a review.
