Check it out! :) Remember, the forums in the reviews section (including this forum) are for posting about a single book or series in topic, and the topic title should include the book's title. If you are creating a new topic, please try to post it in one of the other genres rather than posting it here in the "other fiction" section. This is only for books that do not fit in any of the other genre categories we have listed.

Thanks, Mary! There are many outstanding books here by unknown authors.
Yes, there are! I get really anxious every time I think about all the great authors the world never heard about.

Hmmmm. Spent my budgeted money on books for this month already. I may have to dip a little further into the pockets for this one! Short, sweet and to the point review. Good job!

This review is awesome. The book consists of these ten writers. There stories are connected because of their personalities and attitudes of the charactres. The stories are based on hatred and vegenance. It is not good to act out on either one because you will have to deal with the consequences. Even though these are short stories. They are written by ten different writers. Sometimes the ones that you are trying to destruct are the ones that brings you down.

I really enjoyed the book from the fact it had many writers .I love also that the stories have a interesting start that anyone would crave to finish, since it has no boring sides. You authors did a great job .

I'd like to have this book because I'm not so used to reading composite stories or compilation of short tales. I enjoy lingering quite a bit longer in a novel and await compelling developments in the story as it comes, rather than be off with an abrupt end of a short tale.

Though I do prefer novels, short stories have a special allure too. Holding fire is a collective view from different perspectives. It shows how much writers can think to give an original piece of one topic.

Read it a while back. Kinda like a fictional omnibus.
