Some kill for fun; others kill to survive. Whether its little Fern, the good girl whom everyone adores who leaves a trail of bodies, or little Vicky who’s just trying to survive in a world gone wrong. Each story in Little Killers A to Z will take readers on a dark ride into the makings of a killer. From modern day times to more fantastical set realities, each story will leave you haunted. Who would ever suspect a child of murder? Well, these little killers certainly take that one question for advantage in each of these dark and spine-tingling tales.
The way Odentz has crafted these tiny killers is astounding. Each and every story is so original and unique. My favorite was “I is for Ivy Who Lives by the Cape”. First of all, it took place on the Cape, which is a place near and dear to my heart. And second of all, it was such a satisfying revenge story. The most disturbing one had to be “V is for Vicky Who Sees the World Crumble” as it dealt with what happens when the world ends. It explores what becomes twisted inside when all hope is lost.
Being someone from New England, I recognized many of the towns that were mentioned in the stories, and Odentz did a great job paying homage to them. And every story you read in this collection will leave you feeling differently. It is extremely hard for me to find a short story book where I enjoy every single tale, and I simply could not put this one down. It’s creepy, it’s disturbing, it’s everything I look for in a horror book. Fans of horror pick this book up and read it! You have no idea what you are missing!
