    1. Thanks to the author for providing a free download in exchange for an honest opinion. So, here we go. . .I could not help but recall Dennis Green’s (head coach of the Arizona Cardinals) post game rant after the Chicago Bears comeback win against his team in 2006. In that rant, he exclaimed that, “They were who we thought they were!” It’s the same for these short stories.

This first volume in my brand new "Bright Shadows" series is a trilogy of three short novels (novelettes) in the "Twilight Zone" style, a style I personally love and have a great passion and feeling for.

The narrator, John Bell, injects much life into the text with his astoundingly v [...]

    5. AudioBook Review: Stars: Overall 3 Narration 4 Story 3I am admitted fan of short stories, so this trilogy was an enticing review option. R. Manolakas presents these as being in the style of Twilight Zone, and while they were different and solidly written, there was just a little something missing to give me that moment of “ooh” that I remember from those shows.
