First reviews for The Shelter...

The first reviews are in for The Shelter, my new horror novella:

"James Everington has the rare ability to spark all of my senses as I read, without ever using wordy descriptions. One or two short sentences and I can feel the character's fear and confusion. I see the scene, taste the dust and dirt... This could be a tale of madness or redemption. Either way, you won't want to put it down." (US 5-star review)

"...a well crafted story by a master storyteller... underlying it is a deep understanding of human nature and why people think or behave in certain ways. He takes us inside his characters' heads, and we live through their hopes and fears with them." (UK 5-star review)

thanks
James

RE: First reviews for The Shelter...

Latest five star review: "Everington's The Other Room was one of the most impressive debut collections that I've read in some time, and The Shelter follows this up and takes it further, and would absolutely not be out of place in any print anthology. Start reading James Everington now, so when he's a star of the genre you can be smug about the fact that you've been reading him from the start."

New Review of The Shelter

Big thanks to Kayleigh Murphey from the Hail Horrors, Hail website for this rather splendid review of The Shelter here.

"...the book manages to balance that precarious line between real and supernatural horror. The story is, for the most part, grounded in the real, but there is that ever present "what if" that you simply can't ignore."
