A devilish game of chess goes wrong in Checkmate... Five stars. Icy is versatile and can write well in many genres. In fact, her Western novel, "The Guns of Retribution," was recently released in paperback and eBook by Pulp Press. As a lover of short stories I was intrigued by this book that a friend had recommended to me. Each story is well written and draws you into its fictional word - even if it is just a short piece of flash fiction. There were two stand out pieces for me. The Mirror Phase actually brought the hairs on my arms up in a chill with a single sentence. Icy certainly hit one of my personal fears with that piece. The other that has left a real impression was My Bleeding Heart - one that everyone can empathise with in some way. Dirt cheap and a series of excellent reads. Give it a go!
