Book Review - A Sliver of Darkness by C.J. Tudor

A Sliver of Darkness

A Sliver of Darkness by C.J. Tudor
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

 Synopsis: The debut short story collection from the acclaimed author of The Chalk Man, featuring ten bone-chilling and mind-bending tales

Timeslips. Doomsday scenarios. Killer butterflies. C. J. Tudor's novels are widely acclaimed for their dark, twisty suspense plots, but with A Sliver of Darkness, she pulls us even further into her dizzying imagination.

In Final Course, the world has descended into darkness, but a group of old friends make time for one last dinner party. In Runaway Blues, thwarted love, revenge, and something very nasty stowed in a hat box converge. In Gloria, a strange girl at a service station endears herself to a cold-hearted killer, but can a leopard really change its spots? And in I'm Not Ted, a case of mistaken identity has unforeseen, fatal consequences.

Riveting and explosively original, A Sliver of Darkness is C. J. Tudor at her most wicked and uninhibited.

My Thoughts: I don't normally enjoy or even read short story collections but I love this authors writing and couldn't pass this up. I was surprisingly pleased and happy I did give the book a chance! Each short tale is started with a brief introduction as to where the author came up with the idea for it and it gave me more of a personal feel because of that.

There were a nice variety with a bit of something for everybody it seems and I only really came across maybe two that I only felt meh about. Some of my favorites were Gloria, End of the Liner, and Dust.

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this copy in exchange for my honest thoughts.
