When the Dark Wins Reviews
The first story that I read of this book is Catacombs of Addison Cain.
This short story is tragic since the beginning.
The life of Pearl is not easy, she has suffer mental and physical abuse her entire live. She doesn’t know what is wrong with her. But she is fighting to survive and find her way to pass her life. She is content with her mini apartment and her tiny window.
One night in her way home a man try to rape her and she defends her self the only way she knows and that simple act condemned he ...more
Send wine and fluffy kitties, stat! Those are pretty much the only things that got me through this one.
I love the dark. I play in the dark a lot. I will read every dark thing I get and revel in it, and really, I think the darker the better. I'm perfectly happy to not have a happily ever after, a happy for now will work too. But in this book? Happy is a forbidden word. There are no happy endings. Period. There is no light, no happy, no nothing but dark, dark, dark, more dark, even darker, and bl ...more
The short story in this anthology by Yolanda Olson, What Lies Beneath, is yet another story she can add her to "wtf" shelf. This one pulls you in, drags you along, then drops you over the edge with a twist you won't see coming. I seriously cannot wait for the rest of this anthology. If her story is just a taste of what is in store, then I'm already hooked
This review is on the story Used by Cari Silverwood.
Is set in the world of Mesmers from Cari Silverwood's Dark Hearts series. However, this story features different main characters than what was in the Dark Hearts series.
Mesmers are the men with the ability to mind control women. These men are often corrupted by this power, have an increase sex drive, and their sexual pleasure often leans towards the sadistic side. This & other nuances are explained during the story.
Cari Silverwood's - Used
If you've read anything of Cari's before then you won't be surprised she hits the mark dead on with "Used" she's created a world excitingly dark. One must wonder about the power of control are we really doing what we want? or is there some dark figure pulling our puppet strings.
The monster that is Isak who thinks his calm is Red one that he let go and is back. That monster hovers at the edges by a thread once lose the real terror begins. Psychologically warped, terrifyin ...more
There are no happy endings here, there are no 'happy for nows'--there is no happy.
When the Dark Wins is a dark and depraved collection of stories that are meant to haunt your dreams. Each story is demented in its own way and I enjoyed all immensely. Say what you want, but I would love to have continuations of several of these stories, how messed up does that make me? Not to mention I also fell a little for more than one of these villains. Over all this anthology gets 4.5 stars from me, but I a ...more
Warning! If you can't handle the darkness, and stories that feel like they are ripping you out from the inside then steer clear. There is no fluff When The Dark Wins.
In no particular order here are my reviews for each instalment in this anthology. I will be adding the rest as I read them.
Breaking Beth by Jennifer Bene
I dont think its quite sunk in yet. I did take a deep breath at the end though. Anthony is a pure psychopath, I hated him in the Thalia series but in this for what he did to Beth I ...more
Be still my little black heart! This anthology is a wonderfully delicious collection of very dark novellas that kept me hanging on every word.
Before reading this, I was already fans of Cari Silverwood and Jennifer Bene, but I have found several new authors I need to check out. I'm thrilled. My debit card not so much.
If you really love dark erotica and plot twists that seeps into your skin and leaves you begging for more, do not miss out in this anthology. It is perfect!
