    Not a huge fan of short stories, but I am a fan of Adams and these are pretty good. “The Blackest Eyes” – Dinner time for Rosie. 3.5 Stars “Me, Debased” - Jewkakke! 4 Stars There is also a sneak peek at Adams upcoming novel “The Con Season”. I dig that Adam mentioned this a head of time because I hate it when you don’t see it coming. I would be lying if I said I read the whole preview, but I did read the first several pages and I can already tell that I am all in for this one.

    I have been a fan of Adam ever since I stumbled across one of his books a few years back. 'Video Night' was just what I was looking for at the time-a nostalgic read that featured lots of 80's VHS references, great characters and gore! Ever since finishing that book I was hooked! I went and picked up his other books that cemented my belief he was a writer on the up. 'The Blackest Eyes' is his most recent release and contains two short stories along with an excerpt from his forthcoming novel 'The I have been a fan of Adam ever since I stumbled across one of his books a few years back.

I went and picked up his other books that cemented my belief he was a writer on the up. 'The Blackest Eyes' is his most recent release and contains two short stories along with an excerpt from his forthcoming novel 'The Con Season' This book is the perfect introduction to his work for new readers, whilst being another solid entry to his catalogue for us fans. It features two very different stories that highlight Adam's versatility as a writer. I have to be honest; when I was reading the first story I was wondering where it was going....then, all of a sudden ,BANG! things get a little crazy and I really enjoyed it. The ending was terrific. If you have read any of Adam's other books then you will know that he does this regularly. The second story is much different and will appeal to those who have read his Broken River Books novella 'First One you Expect', which is a superb read. It is very different from the first story, but, like I said before, it serves to show this writers versatility. He is not afraid to take chances, taking his own brand of horror into a slightly different direction. As a big fan of 'First One you Expect' I was delighted to read this accompanying short. The excerpt from'The Con Season' is great! an Indie film maker gets pulled over by a couple of underdressed police officers who wish to search his vehicle. I won't tell you what happens but it sets up the story nicely and leaves you with a 'cannot wait to read this' feeling in your stomach. Those that are new to the works of Cesare should definitely check this out. It is a steal at 99c and I think you will be well pleased that you did. Adam Cesare is a writer you should be reading if you're a fan of quality horror fiction. Dig on it.

    The Blackest Eyes, a double-shot of horror from Adam Cesare, is a fun romp and a great "coffee-break". You're going to blast through these quick, walking away wanting more. Mr. Cesare is a fun writer, who's characters seem to be just as interesting as the events unfolding around them. A special effects guy and a fan-fic writer, regular people getting into irregular predicaments. Story one, The Blackest Eyes a gnarly shark-week tune, that brings the chum.

And the second piece, Me, Debased is a tangent splintered off of The First One You Expect (a great read) and it's very cool getting back into that universe, even if it is not directly. So check this out, and if you haven't already check out something else from Adam, he has the goods. Zakk is a big dumb animal! The Eyes of Madness https://zdubbzattmom.wordpress.com

    There are two short stories in this collection. The first story I didn't really get. It seemed pointless. The writing was fine, but there seemed to be no plot and then it was over. I really liked the second story, so much so that I wish there was more. It felt like a first chapter of a longer novel and it ended so abruptly that the story as a whole didn't feel satisfying, it felt unfinished. Overall, I do like the writing style and I have two novels by the same author that I look forward to readin There are two short stories in this collection. The first story I didn't really get.

    2.5 stars I've never read anything by Adam Cesare and decided to start with this (free when subscribing on author's web site). These stories were very short and I didn't care for them all that much. However, I can tell that the author likes to inject some humour into the horror which is appealing. I'd be willing to check ou his novels to get a better feel for his writing. There are many favorable reviews for his books so it's worth a try. 2.5 stars I've never read anything by Adam Cesare and decided to start with this (free when subscribing on author's web site).

    Adam Cesare is great. Love his longer works, like Con Season, which is previewed at the end of this book. The stories were decent, but seemed to lack something that he delivers in his longer work. Still worth a read.

    I received this e-book for free, and read it to get a sense of whether I'd want to purchase any of Adam's full texts in the future. I can safely say that, yes, I will be purchasing some of his longer works soon. While these two short stories were not the most exciting things I've ever read, the writing style was lovely and the excerpt from The Con Season is was a great hook. "The Blackest Eyes": 3 stars. Not what I was expecting.

Having not read (or even looked up yet) The First One You Expect, I didn't really know what to expect- and it was (maybe?) better that way. The story itself was good, a bit predictable, but interesting enough to not be entirely satisfied by the ending.

    Great first story I really enjoyed Rosie and her hypnotic black eyes. A great story with a creepy twist. I didn't care too much for the second story though.

    This two-story collection came as a freebie, so it was the perfect occasion to get a taste of the author's acclaimed work. The summary, especially the keywords shark and slasher (which drew me in like gigantic neon signs) suggest horror with a big H and an even higher blood count. But this is only half the truth, because what you also get is some great character-driven plot, which makes it even better. It is not usual to have the best of both worlds combined in such a perfect mix, but Mr. Cesare This two-story collection came as a freebie, so it was the perfect occasion to get a taste of the author's acclaimed work.

It is not usual to have the best of both worlds combined in such a perfect mix, but Mr. Cesare definitely knows how to do the job. While I did enjoy the more graphic scenes, what I really loved were the characters. They felt believably real, even likable, despite their unbelievable and not so likable actions. It's a clever plan to bait potential readers with some free stories, and if the bait is as yummy as these two were, I will eagerly grab the line myself to help reel me in. Highly recommended!
