Family funerals Beware the supernatural Beware the weather Beware the string Strings by Darren Gallagher is a collection of 33 mostly scary short stories spanning different eras worlds themes and places The stories encompass a variety of topics ranging from vampires and werewolves to swarms of spiders to newly made up creatures to cowboys even ‘Ruby Red Soldiers’ is a ten star opening to the Strings collection It is highly creative with a new take on the supernatural I’m doing an effort not to spoil this one but suffice to say I loved every bit of it Also the fact that I don’t think I have read – or seen – any scary stories that take place during the day It’s always the dark and dead of night but not Gallagher and not this story‘A Hiker’s Life’ is an excellent and creative masterpiece about the things that go bump in the morning I love how Gallagher had me fooled throughout this entire pieceI loved the five star piece called ‘The Wishing Well’ which was not scary at first but the ending was the scariest part In a ’A Bag Full of Ashes’ who could have though Christmas would be scary? It’s new suspenseful different and interesting It also has this sort of uniting in death theme ‘Renovation’ is one of the stories that do not include the supernatural element but that is scarier than many other worldly stories I loved the image “the kitchen was an untapped pit of darkness” This story will give every reader the notion of thinking several times and looking into suspicious investments A ten star piece‘Kumari’ is a short story hit the spot for me It is certainly one of my favourites in the Strings collection There is no magic involved just a little girl with a warrior within against a male dominated society I did not feel it was a scary story but certainly a ten star masterpiece‘Fighting the Curse’ is a dark and interesting story though a bit bloody and gruesome but nonetheless different and enjoyableIn ‘A Secret in Time’ I felt that there was something wrong with the third person narrations of this story like it’s too passive or too slow Overall the storyline is good and though the Hiker’s transformation is a big vague the story is interesting and would be great to build up a full length novella or novel on it I enjoyed the fight and the constant power shift as well as the sort of beauty and the beast reversalMoving on to a ‘New Life New World New Beginnings’ which represents a new take on the sewer cliché as one character says “You mean all a criminal has to do to escape is go into the sewers?” and surprisingly the answer is “Yes” Which is rather comical This story is another Gallagher masterpiece that is highly creative with experimentation on Lycans rather than werewolvesI loved ‘Hustled’ which I felt could be metaphoric for the burdens we bear and encumber ourselves with in life The story moves at a fairly slow pace at first but for good reason then the speed picks up with the turn of events and the speed that comes with such a shift is very nicely done I liked Sebil’s cunningIn ‘Till Death Do Us Part’ I loved the bit when one character asks “Why?” and the reply was “Because I want to and because I can”‘Akuya’ is one of the top masterpieces in the collection I loved every bit of it particularly how it is not about good and evil or even their notions A must read It is followed by ‘Flight of a Dead Man’ an action packed story that seems to be inspired by the theme of The Transporter movies I loved Gallagher’s use of this speech in this piece A must read ten star storyAnother masterpiece is the story of ‘Sinsu’ which I truly enjoyed especially how it unfolded how taunting bad dreams could be and I believe many can relate to having a bad day after a nightmare The ending was perfect‘Too Little Too Late’ is a heart breaking story that is not scary and has no place in this collection in my personal opinion It is well written but I did not like the contentI wish I could mention and comment on all but that will make my review far longer than it already is However I will briefly mention a few titles that I enjoyed ‘Down by the River’ ‘Little Haven’ ‘Jars of Hearts’ ‘A Murder of Crows’ ‘Blood Ties’ ‘A Christmas Tree Is More than Just an Object’ and ‘Frozen Out’Overall Gallagher uses many children in his stories to reinforce the scary element added to using familiar ideas like Christmas trees and contemplating at the lake and twisting the events to create something brand new This adds a lot to his works most of which are highly enjoyableThere were a few stories that were er ok for me but only one felt out place in this collection hence a 45 star rating is in order I realize it is almost impossible to like every piece in a collectionNote I received a free copy of Strings from the author for an honest review and while this post was originally slated for 31st of October 2014 stuff happened and both my reading and post were delayed

    Strings is my first book by Darren Gallagher and it certainly won't be the last 33 short stories just didn't seem like enoughRuby Red Slippers was a killer of an opening A supernatural story of how we are all connected and how evil tries to tap into that connectionA Hiker's Life had me yelling at the book trying to come to the rescue Well wasn't I fooledKumari is a tale that has been told many times in different ways What I take from stories like these is don't underestimate a child and always have faith in their abilitiesA Walk To Remember most of us at some point in our lives would jump at the idea of being able to meet a fairy Throw in a dog and you have a five star storyThere's Only One Good Thing About Halloween The Pies I was super excited to read this story being the season and it was the best Halloween story I've read in a long time Yes it was predictable but so much funChristmas Trees Are More Than Just An Object a normal family outing to pick the year's Christmas tree but there are so many to choose from The tree of choice has left me with so many uestions my head is still reelingA Secret Revealed At The End perfect choice for the last story Such a beautiful and well written taleSuch an exciting bunch of stories and all uniue in there own way be it supernatural vampires werewolves faries monsters ghosts each story had me enraptured and excited to see where it would leadI read this book in a readalong with a great group of girls and was lucky enough to have won the book in a giveaway by Darren Gallagher This has not swayed my reviewI highly recommend this book to lovers of short stories and dark fiction

    This collection of 33 stories was one hell of a fun ride If you’re in a reading slump and need something to spark up the pleasure of reading look no further Fast and fun I think the longest story is ten pages They are short but pack a punch I’m looking forward to from this author

    I really enjoyed Strings it consisted of 33 short stories covering a wide range of topics I was in THE WORST slump before I started this collection and I wasn’t sure if I’d be able to shake it this book definitely helped me out The stories were short but they packed a serious punchEvery story in this collection was super fun and fast paced I had a really hard time reading just one and putting the book down If you’re in the mood for creepy insects vampires werewolves fairies or ghosts plus much you will love this collection Gallagher has such an incredible imagination and he takes you on a wild rideThere were a couple stories that I wish were maybe a tad longer and didn’t end so abruptly but that’s my only critiueThese stories have the perfect amount of creep factor Some had my hair standing up on end and my skin crawling I was captivated by each story and I didn’t want to put it down I will definitely be reading of Gallagher’s work

    Strings is a very addicting collection of 33 dark short stories I had a difficult time reading just one I was stealing moments through out the day to read Daren has a very straight forward writing style He lays out the settings and the characters in great detail and many times the ending is unexpected Each story was very different than the one before it There are so many topics ranging from monsters werewolves ghosts insects and The stories were to the point and fast paced The Wishing Well seemed like an average story about a couple but the ending chilled me to the bone The renovation was my favorite story It was the type of story that made the hair on the back of my next stands up but without any type of ghost or outlandish monster A bag full of ashes has changed the way I look at Christmas trees These were just some of my favorites They were vivid well written stories that were completely terrifying
