Featured Book Review: Killing Your Boss

Killing Your Boss
 
 
 
 
 
Author : James DeSantis


Killing Your Boss was a great horror serial killer read. The author, James DeSantis did a marvelous job with this short story that had many twists in it. I like how the author describes each character on their own page. James was very descriptive with his writing to the point…

Where Darkness Lives

I LOVED PREVIOUS BOOKS BY ROSS, BUT THIS ONE HAD PREDICTABLE CHARACTERS AND A WEAK TO SAY THE LEAST PLOT. IN FACT, THE BOOK WASN’T IN THE LEAST HORRIFYING, UNLESS A TRULY WORTHLESS BOOK HORRIFIES YOU. IF I COULD SAY ANYTHING ABOUT THE MAIN CHARACTERS IN THIS BOOK I WOULD HAVE TO COMMENT THAT THEY WERE, IGNORANT, IMMATURE, AND FRANKLY I WANTED TO SLAP SOME COMMON SENSE INTO THE GIRL. WHAT NITWIT TAKES OFF WITH A GUY SHE BARELY KNOWS TO AN ISOLATED HOUSE INHABITED BY GHOSTS WITH HILLBILLY MENTALITY THEN STICKS AROUND “CAUSE SHE WON’T LEAVE HER MAN”? THE PREMISE WOULD MAKE A GOOD OLD-FASHIONED TWANGY COUNTRY WESTERN TEARJERKER SONG, SAY CIRCA TAMMY WYNETTE. THERE IS USUALLY A NITWIT TO BE FOUND IN THOSE TOO. SOME WOMAN WHO’LL STICK AROUND EVEN THOUGH HER MAN HIT’S, BELITTLES, AND TRIES TO KILL HER… NEED I SAY MORE? JUST TO ADD THIS LAST BIT: THE WRITING IN THIS ONE ALSO MEANDERED AND DRUG ON AND ON TO THE DREARY END… I HAD THE FEELING THAT ROSS COULDN’T DECIDE WHERE HE WANTED TO TAKE THIS ONE. HIS HEART WAS DEFINATELY NOT IN IT. WHAT WAS HIS EDITOR THINKING? SO SAD FOR ROSS… HOPE THE NEXT ONE IS BETTER.
