Publisher's Summary

Evil rules the mean streets in many guises, waiting in the shadows along the crumbled edges of the mega-cities, where murder is the only crime that leaves a trace for lesser violent acts are simply not reported.

Children, the elderly, the slightly and severely damaged make up the homeless. The weak and the helpless are deemed beyond salvation and beneath contempt by all but the strongest and the cruelest who see them as a source of sustenance.

Kiss of Quicksilver

This was a great story of someone just trying to help her and her loved ones survive. A great story and sad for those who just couldn't pull through.

Another Great Dona Short

I've listened to a few audio shorts from Ms. Fox. Always a good listen!! I love that her stories are just right for my commute. In this one we are learning about the homeless who are struggling to stay alive. But their struggles are hard and can be deadly. The narration was very good. Worked very well for this story. Thank you for the opportunity to listen.

Realistic Horror

Kiss of Quicksilver is a realistic, not supernatural, horror story. It is very well written, very gritty. This one is worthy of literary awards. Also, Dona Fox has a knack for picking the perfect narrator to deliver each story.

Brutal, heart wrenching and unforgetable

The story starts of with the main characters having a very bad day and the days that follow just gets worse from that point on. It's said that true horror will bring out almost a physical response in the reader and this story certainly fits that description. I went from being horrified, to feeling sick to my stomach to then becoming overwhelmed with a sense of dread. I would actually go so far to say this steps into the realm of extreme horror. Which, again, is great if you are into true horror. The author doesn't flinch or pull back for a second, staring the darkness straight in the eye and forging ahead without even the slightest attempt to soften the edges. The author was fearless, leaving the reader to experience the fear instead. An excellent example of true, raw horror. If you like it harsh, this is it. No room for whimpy readers here.

I will say one thing. I no longer think bad people die and go to Hell. I think they die and return as children in a Dona Fox story. Oh my gosh! All I can say is I hope this is not a reflection of her childhood, because holy freakin' cow!

Great short!

Really gripping short story. Loved it. I wish this one were longer. Peculiar narrator; took awhile to get used to, but it works. Grab this one!

Rough Narration

The writing was really good and descriptive. I didnt think it was too scary for a short horror, although there were some really grisly descriptions that I could definitely picture in my mind. This author really knows how to deliver a captivating snippet of darkness.

My overall biggest complaint is the narration. I think the narrator was trying to do stuff to make it seem more scary but in all actuality it just made some parts highly distorted and for a few few moments indecipherable. It was relatively frustrating and took away from this short story.

I received a review copy at my request and have voluntarily left this unbiased review.

Good story!

I didn’t find this story as haunting as some of Dona’s other releases, so felt a little disappointed, but it’s still a good story and worth a read!
I think my biggest issue was not gelling with the narrator; he reads it perfectly well, but not ‘getting’ a narrator is hard with a short story as you don’t get enough time to find their rhythm.
I wouldn’t hesitate to listen to other Dona books though and will continue to look out for her! :)
This is an honest opinion of a free review copy.
