REVIEW – Peace and Disquiet

p&dPeace and Disquiet is a collection of short stories which are certainly of the more creepy and disquieting side rather than peaceful. All the stories feature death and/or demise of a curious nature often with a little twist or a feeling of all is not what it first seems.

the relief of her mother, Jenny can't remember anything of that sickening and vicious attack. But not remembering doesn't mean that all is well within Jenny. She needs to know what happened that night, who did this to her, who branded their mark on her skin. (more…)
