Description Feast by David Vorhees

A collection of short stories that take place on different holidays over the course of the year. The collection opens with “A New Year, a New Day, a New Life.” Grant Curtis is arrested on New Year’s Day and charged with the murder of his wife Carla. In “Easter: The Resurrection,” a resurrected Kyle Gardner seeks vengeance on Pastor Brian. “The Vengeance of Cassidy Clay” is a narrative poem that takes place on Halloween. The poem tells the story of a slave-hunter who haunts the woods long after his death and many more spine chilling tales.

Praise for Feast by David Vorhees

“Vorhees does a nice job of keeping a "theme" throughout (even as the stories change from tale to tale. This felt like one cohesive set of stories instead of a bunch of random ones thrown into a book. The character building and storytelling were good and I thought that Vorhees was able to write short stories that felt realistic and new while also feeling "familiar". What I mean by this is that they still feel like original stories but they don't feel like brand new ideas. Just like some of the best horror films play on the same topics and plots - these stories benefit from good horror tropes. If you're a horror fan and a fan of horror short stories there's bound to be something in this collection that'll suit you. I enjoyed it from beginning to end and I'm glad that I had a chance to check it out.”-Brian’s Book Blog “Most of the tales are deeply disturbing and be warned: you won’t be able to unsee them. This is a nod to the effectiveness of the author’s storytelling ability and gift for description.”-Kristine, Hall Ways Blog “I thought each story was unique; I like the author’s writing style. I would recommend this to readers of dark fiction, if you like a little gore with your horror, and a realism that makes it stick with you after you are done. I could see giving this as a gift.”- Sarah, Quackzombie “Mind-bending and wildly entertaining! I was hooked after the first story, and it just got better after that. The themed horror stories for each separate holiday was a new concept for me, making each story that much more riveting. The characters and scenes are well thought out and eerily relatable, which allows you to become immersed in the story. This collection of stories is a definite must read!”-Lyn Savage, Amazon


Ding, ding, ding.

As her eyes slowly open, she can hear a ringing in her head. Ding, ding, ding. Her head hurts, she wonders what happened. Ding, ding, ding. As her head clears, she realizes what that sound is. It is the sound the car makes when a door is left open. Ding, ding, ding. She fully opens her eyes and realizes quickly what happened. They were in an accident. Ding, ding, ding.  She sits up and sees the inflated air bag before her, she struggles against it trying to look behind her to check on Mikey. He is only four after all. Ding, ding, ding. Her hands find a pen and she stabs the airbag. It makes a loud sound, like a balloon popping, and lets the air out. Ding, ding, ding. The sound continues almost as if it is mocking her. Ding, ding, ding. As the air lets out of the airbag, she turns her eyes towards the back seat. Ding, ding, ding. As the sound fills the air, fear fills her body. Ding, ding, ding. She looks in horror at the empty car seat that held her son, that was supposed to protect him in an event such as this. Ding, ding, ding. Her first thought was that he was somehow thrown from the car. ding, ding, ding.

“John.”  she says. “John!” she screams when he didn’t respond the first time. She hopes he is ok. She is sure he is; she is after all. “John, Michael is missing!”

My Review

David Vorhees has written an entertaining collection of horror filled stories in his newest release, The Feast: And other Horrifying Tales. I have to admit, I do not normally read this genre but intrigued with the cover and wanted to see what the book was all about. I am so glad I wanted to give a try. It was so very good. I enjoyed reading these tales. I was on quite the thrilling roller coaster ride with this one. It was so much fun to read. 

The Feast: And Other Horrifying Tales is getting a very well deserved five plus stars from me. I highly recommend it for readers who enjoy read scary stories. And, also, recommend it for those who want to go outside their comfort zone of genre. I think they will be glad they did. 

I received The Feast: And Other Horrifying Tales from the publisher. This review is one hundred percent my own honest opinion.
