Story 2 – Tortured Souls – A group of Urban Explorers entering an abandoned asylum encounter more than they had bargained for as horrors of the past resurface looking for answers and revenge.

Story 8 – The Calling – The summer solstice, a school trip into the wilderness, and a full moon. What could possibly go wrong? For three sixth form student’s life will never be the same.

Praises and critiques:

First and foremost I wanted to say that the book’s cover is really nice and the font that was chosen for the book was pleasant for the eyes. I think that it is important to choose a good font and formatting that makes the book stand out. 

Now let’s dig into the real stuff. The book was an excellent read that captivated me until the end. All eight stories were scary, original, and extremely gory. Additionally, the writing style of Craig is well developed and soon becomes a narrative in your head where you barely see the words on the page. Fragmented Evil was a true page-turner that I could just not put down.

Recommendations:

I recommend this awesome book to all horror fans but be warned it is gory and not for sensitive hearts.

Rating:

Rating: 4.5 out of 5.

I give 4.5 stars to Fragmented Evil for its original content and its ability to spook you out.

  1. It was a pleasure to work with Steven. He genuinely takes the time to get to know the author (me) and asks many questions regarding the story, the thoughts behind the plotting, characters etc. Look forward to working with Steven again.

  2. That sounds as if it is an interesting read. I tend to read more history and personal development but I do know some people who would enjoy such a book.

  3. This sounds like a great read! I enjoy all types of genres, and I really love collected short stories and novellas, so I’m very eager to read this one.

  4. Aww yeah. Now this is the booi for me. Collected stories are great becaues they don’t require a huge commitment, and the synopsis of each of these all sound fantastic.

  5. I actually really love short stories as I’m so incredibly busy that I find it hard to finish a whole book nowadays. Horror is not a genre I delve into much but I’m open to a good tale that’s for sure!

  6. To be honest, when I started reading your review I did not really feel like this for me but – I do think I would enjoy reading this, so thanks for the tip 🙂

  9. Oh snap! Sounds pretty good but the horror and gore is really affecting me nowadays. I’m sure it’s written very vividly, though!
