Two thrilling horror stories comprise book #30 of the Short Sharp Shocks! Series.
In The Encampment by the Gorge, a group of workers building a road through an uninhabited area of Australia seek those responsible for killing the site’s guard dogs.
I may be biased to Ashford’s writing, as I am a fan of everything Aussie. However, the author’s gripping tales are easy to love.
The characters come alive on the page, and I could see and hear each one. Snaps to the author for creating a horror that I did not see coming, and which was truly disturbing. As the story progressed, I found myself holding my breath, which is something very rare for me indeed.
If one wonderful story wasn’t enough, Blood Memory serves up a second helping of excitement.
A journalist writing an article on indigenous people helps look for a missing boy, and gets more than he bargained for with magic and monsters.
Once again the characters came alive for me on the page. A more thoughtful story, perhaps, with the myths of the indigenous people taking front and centre. I liked how the author wove the history of the first people with a truly magical story.
