Good morning, everyone! It’s finally the end of the week and I’m excited to share this new short story with you 🙂
Thanks to the author for the free copy in exchange for my honest review.
THE ROAD THAT TAKES YOU THERE – Jason Sechrest (out now!)
Can we all agree that this cover is stunning?
Something unfamiliar has appeared alongside the old country road George Tinker has been driving all his life. Something dark and relentless in its refusal to be defined. Something that in time will become the sum of all his fears.
My Thoughts: 5/5 stars!
I’m a sucker for short stories and I’ve been dying to get into some more horror lately to break up all the thrillers. When Jason reached out about his newly published short story I was so ready to dive in. I devoured this one while I was at the salon and loved every second of it (may or may not have made the hairstylist wait for me to finish it).
I know that some readers out there aren’t fans of short stories because they are always left wanting more, whether it be details, character development, or more to the story. Sechrest does an incredible job dropping us into that ’57 Thunderbird alongside George Tinker as he drives down that familiar road. You feel his distress and that desperate desire to know why something has suddenly changed.
If you’re looking for a short horror story that isn’t about monsters like vampires and werewolves, then this is one you shouldn’t overlook. The horror occurs in the mind of the main character and I’ll always be in awe of authors that can pack a punch in such a small amount of pages. Definitely an author I’ll be looking for more from in the future!
