The snack the smiles back! Vampires!

Gray's grave gifts gives her readers chills, and always come with a Chubby Checker style twist. You never know what you are going to get from her, and it is never what you expect. That is why I respect her writings so much. She tells a lot of tale in under fifteen minutes here, and it is quality story, too. I love how she can viscerally trim away the fat (Tuesday) and get right into the meat of the story. A lot of other writers would have dawdled about with the mardi gras angle for a while, but not her, she hones right in on her prey, and executes a devatating blow without mercy. You dear reader, are the prey, by the way.

Feast's focus is on a prowling vampire who runs off in search of a nice beaded flasher, or a drunken frat boy, and runs into complications of his own. Is this a case of the hunter becoming the hunted, or the hunter's hunger leading him into new areas of fine dining? Either way, this short snack will leave you satisfied as a snickers bar before the big game, but oddly leaving you hungrier for even more of Gray's great concoctions. She does mix up a batch of literary magic, sort of like a bartender who becomes an alchemist.

Do not miss out on a great short, and then go and get some of her bigger stuff, she will not let you down. Heck's fire, you can get her whole collection for just a fang full of dollars! Hurry up, Blue Belle awaits! Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Great Story

This was a fun spin on vampires. What I love about Roma's work is that you always know you are in for something wonderful but you can never guess where she will take you. The idea presented here was so much fun in a creepy sort of way. I hope she will explore what becomes of ... I dare not say because I want you to be a surprised by where this goes. Great atmosphere, vivid details, perfect plot and pace.

A different monster twist

Monster against monster? What could possibly be the outcome of that, no more monsters? Roma Gray puts a different spin on the traditional vampire story. I found it interesting and am thinking this would make a good full-length novel. Who knows. The narrator did a great job with a nice, clear voice and professional recording. Thank you, Roma Gray for gifting me a review copy.

Unusual twist on a vampire story

Roma Gray gives us an interesting short vampire story with an unusual twist. JD Kelly does an excellent narration putting us into the mind of the main character.

Clever horror short story

This is a very clever short story about vampires in New Orleans on Mardi Gras. I really enjoyed it. This is the first work by Roma Gray that I have listened to and plan on checking out more of her books now. The narrator did a good job. I received this for free for an honest review.

Nice

Big fan of Roma Gray! It seems to be a hit or miss with her stories though. I liked this one. I could easily see it being made into a longer story.

This is the second time I’ve listened to this narrator, and I’m on the fence with him. He did good with the voice variety, albeit there were only two characters in the story, but there were times when he was talking in an American accent (or attempting to) and his British accent was still coming through, if that makes sense. Either way, the narrator Terry B Self has done the majority of narrating for Ms. Grays books, and I love him!

A Clever Twist on the vampire genre

A haunting tale which lets us know the end comes to us all. Or maybe just a transition. Very atmospheric and a clever little kicker to boot.
