The Abyss is there, right in front of us.
We all see it but no one dares approach. We are afraid of what is in there, afraid of what will happen when we cross that barrier and enter the world unknown.
Within these pages are stories of people that have crossed into the Abyss. Some of them regretting it as soon as they did… Others, not living long enough to realise their error.
A city swallowed by darkness, a private county club that holds a terrible secret, a lonely musician and an unwanted guest are just some of the horrors that await you.
Come, dive in and enjoy all the wonders of the Abyss… If you dare.
Disclaimer: I was provided with an eARC of the book by The Author in exchange for an honest review. However, all the thoughts, feelings and opinions expressed in this review are my own.
I adore Darren Gallagher’s work – his collection of short horror stories was one of the first books I had reviewed on the blog – Strings (Read My Review).
Abyss is the second book and one that I certainly enjoyed – Abyss is also a collection of horror stories & before I talk about exactly what I have learnt from these stories; can I just say that I love that he has expanded into the territory of fantasy and a little bit of dystopia as well? Well I am, and it just makes me anxious to see what else he comes up with!
So here’s what I have learnt, again from this collection:
- You know how the 90s teenagers loved boomboxes at night for the declaration of their love? Yeah no. My husband does that, I am running away right in the opposite direction.
- Let’s come to fishing – I have heard that its quite the relaxing; but yeah I am keeping away from those carnivores fishes forever and ever!
- Let’s talk ex’s – break up in a public place, trust me – do not ever, in any circumstances go back to their place. NO MATTER WHAT!
- Lastly, but definitely not the least, I need to get enrolled in Krav Maga classes, like STAT! Or I wouldn’t survive an apocalypse.
This is a collection from Darren Gallagher are some that would be wonderful scare the pants of that one friend who scares at the slightest sound – and I plan on doing exactly that to my husband 😉
