Cold Sparks: Two Chilling Novellas of Horror by Catherine Cavendish
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
12 Stars anyone?
A Joy, a Delight, and Sheer Pleasure are to be found in this duet-consisting of “A Spark in the Darkness” by Peter Giglio and “Cold Revenge” by Catherine Cavendish. I am a well-read person, but both these stories break new ground, chilling me with frissons of terror, horror, and repulsion (and relief that I’m not living in either setting), and provide memories that will long linger-as well as the compulsion to read more from these excellent authors. Not just the writing, but the vividness, the stretch of imagination required to construct these special stories, have totally impressed this reviewer.
“A Spark in the Darkness” teaches us of an entirely new view of vampires-and let me assure you, they are immensely dangerous-and no, they’re not sparkly-not at all.
“Cold Revenge”-oh, the shivers! Please do not read at night while alone-and especially not if you have a guilty conscience.
Do read this set, and marvel-Mr. Giglio and Ms. Cavendish travel where no writer has gone before.
