    Review of What Tangled Webs

    "Lament of the Devil" this short story is written in poem verse. It flows so smoothly as it comments on what type of person the devil likes.
    "Deliver Us From Evil", Rob is a delivery guy one who does not have high morels especially with the ladies. This story is all about how it is unwise to get on the wrong side of a woman. Very unwise.
    "Epi3Demic" has a Sheriff investigating some murders. Turns out there are lots of murders going on. The Sheriff and his Deputies come up with a weird situation that is causing all the deaths. The ending is predictable.
    Spelling and grammer need to be checked better.
    "Quid Pro Quo" has a healer healing but what is the cost of the healing to those healed? The ending just sort of ends but not with a moral or any real explanation that delivers a punch line. The story just ends.
    "Rite of Passage" this story takes one surprising turn. A young boy learns this adoption house is far different than any other.
    "Out, Damned Spot" one spot on a bedroom ceiling can cause all kinds of trouble. One man's frustration with his life can to.
    "Briar Trace" has a Sheriff investigating a call about a child alone at home. This story just is. It really has no meaning at all. The Sheriff does come across as a likable person but thats it.
    "What Tangled Webs" a spider attack is nothing to laugh at. Well in this case maybe it is as one man gets what he deserves. This story is told well and has a perfect ending. It even builds a little suspense.
    "The A Word" what exactly is going on here is uncertain. Was it a dream or real? Who knows. It does have some nice chilling moments though.
    "Saranormal" here we have some paranormal investigators. We follow along as they are on an investigation. Another well written and thought provoking story.
    "The Wager" this is a story about love. Jacob you will feel sorry for. Ol' Harry pays him a visit, yes Ol' Harry is the Devil himself. They make a wager.
    Poor Jacob gets to work for the Devil. It is not an easy job. The Devil is a manipulative creature. Jacob's dealings with him are not as he expected. Jacob's love though gives him hope and strength.
    This collection of stories starts out slow but builds in intensity. You will be riveted by some of these scary tales. And thankfull they are only stories or are they?
