Publisher's Summary

Short story author Andrew T. Jayroe brings you Amid Six Worlds, including three titles previously published on Amazon Kindle and three original titles never before seen! These include:

1. "Left": A story of a girl who struggles to identify with her twin brother who was born with a demonizing birth defect in a dystopian world that values genetic perfection.

2. "Strange": A bumbling scientist accidentally releases a strange material with potentially apocalyptic repercussions.

3. "Walk": After the recently departed suddenly reanimate, one undead follows his single, driving desire: to walk.

4. "Hunter's Hell": When Richard Hunter has a terrible car wreck on his way home after a devastating divorce, he finds himself in a hellish recreation of his home town filled with terrible, demonic creatures.

5. "Touch": A fantasy story that served to inspire Andrew T. Jayroe's upcoming novel series The Lords of Anthair in which a reluctant assassin is sent to use his terrible power to murder an innocent child who is destined to throw down the gods.

6. "Lorekeeper": When a young girl in trouble comes to Nyle Reed begging to be taken to a planet in the middle of nowhere, he finds himself in a battle against forces of biblical proportions.

    "Be ready for some really great views"

    A collection of stories that will take you to many different areas of the genres, some familiar some new. They are told with great skill by both author and narrator. The stories take some views that are new and they were all very entertaining. Highly recommend. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "Decent mix of shorts"

    The narrator was incredible. Like other reviewers, I agree half of the stories were engaging and intriguing, leaving the listener hungry for more. Two seemed to stop abruptly. One was blah.
    Persephone Rose did well; not allowing one to pre-judge if the tale was gonna be good and fulfilling or drowning in disappointment.
    I would definitely listen to more by this narrator and I would be hesitant to pick up another book by this author.

    Story
    "Very interesting short stories!"

    Andrew Jayroe has a very vivid imagination. These short stories delve into a little bit of religion, science fiction and possible future scenarios. These stories are graphic and intense.

    I think my favorite was the one about the future society where abnormalities in children were shunned and not allowed to live. This resulted in some major upheaval in one family with tragic consequences. The reason I liked this story so much is because it not only points to a possible future, but also hearkens back to our past (think Nazi doctrine). I feel Andrew did a great job with such few words.

    The narration was superb. Right on target with pace, emotional inflection, tone, etc. Really enjoyed listening to these stories.

    I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    "Really enjoyed some of the stories."

    I listened to the whole book, but I noticed that during some of the stories I was really bored. But the others made me wish they were longer, or even the whole book by themselves.
    The narration is superb, the narrator certainly knows what he's doing.

    "mixed short story collection"
    Any additional comments?

    Like other reviewers here, I found the ideas for some of the stories to be very interesting. So interesting, that I wished the author had expanded them with backstories and more comprehensive plot/character development. My two favourite stories were "Left" and "Hunter's Hell", while the others didn't leave much of a lingering impression on me. I would have enjoyed "Strange" more, if the main character had been more likeable.<br/><br/>I thought that the narrator did a good job with descriptive passages but I was less enchanted with the various voices of characters (especially female voices). It's a bit disappointing because when I get carried away with the story, the grating character voices knock me out of my listening groove and I become less focused in the story itself.<br/><br/>I provided my opinion in exchange for a complimentary copy of the audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher.

    Story
    "Good and bad - 50:50. Borrowed elements."
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The book is a collection of six main stories. So, I could listen to one story and stop for the day, starting the next story on the next day. That way, I wasn't left wanting to read more everyday, which is the typical case with long single story novels. In other words, this book is good for day-by-day consumption.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Not the individual endings of the different stories per se; but some of the stories sounded like they had elements "borrowed" from popular movies / shows. While listening to the story, I kept thinking "hey.. this is how it happens on that movie" (won't spoil the book). That somewhat tarnished the book's originality.<br/><br/>All in all, I like 2 of the stories. The others were kinda meh for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Any additional comments?

    What a box of delights: six stories ranging in length from 14 to 40 minutes with final adventure lasting for approximately an hour and a quarter - just perfect to tuck into those odd moments when time is short but the.desire for a story, well narrated, takes hold.<br/><br/>The content of each varies considerably, from a storm which brings more than just weather, to a zombie's perspective, a man blighted by his touch, through a sad tale of twins and a race against demons, a real weapon of mass destruction and a space adventure. As in all compendiums some are better than others, but each is well written, engaging and worth the listen.<br/><br/>The stories are made extra pleasurable by the readings. Persephone Rose has a most pleasant voice and he uses it well to give emphasis, add fear, solicit empathy and emotion. Each narration is clear, perfectly paced, complementing the text, making every story one told personally to the listener. <br/><br/>I was fortunate in that I was, at my request, freely gifted a copy of Andrew Jayroe's stories by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. I was previously unaware of this author but will certainly look out for more by him in the future. The combination of writer and narrator is excellent and there is a little something for everyone who enjoys science fiction and fantasy, or even just a touch of horror.
