Overview

M Teresa Clayton does it again with Storyteller, a compilation of short fictional stories. Storytellers have been reaching beyond the ordinary for ages - channeling stories from somewhere beyond our own reasoning. After the story is told the questions begin. What if we could see what it is that whispers our name What if there is intelligent life inside a drop of rain What if we could navigate time and space These and other questions are asked within the stories told herein. A word of warning, the price of hearing the story is greater than the telling of it. RL Hodge provides dark imaginative images to compliment the stories therein.

I lost interest pretty quickly, all cliche and predictable, crappy junk writing.

My sleep was restless. I tossed and turned until i woke, sweating. Trying to go back to sleep was pointless. I slipped into my training shoes and put on my black clothing. The door gave a small creak as i opened it. The loose floor boards were scattered around the hall, i was happy i wore my light and silent training shoes. I reached the door and slipped inside. "Amber? Amber!" My wisper seemed like thunder in the quiet room. I heard a groan. "What are doing in here Moon?" She called me by my class name. "Couldnt sleep, Fern." I replied, using her class name. "We have classes tomorrow, you should atleast try" Amber sits up and turns on her lamp. I sigh. "I know. The Galaxys are definitly beating the birds." I say with a grin. Amber laughs. "The plants are gonna beat the Galaxys!" I look at her,."In your dreams!" Amber smiles. "Hey! Im just showing some team spirit!" I roll my eyes. "So. Lets go through the plan." Amber nods. "During the game, our teams will be allies. Opponents will be unaware of this. The first part will be blackout. We will be unable to see one another. The signal is a small stomp to show that you are a galxy or plant" I nod. "Then we can easily overcome other teams. We will hear the rehular stepw instead of stomps." Amber grins. "Exactly. The next one is a team work callenge. We dont know what it will be so we dont have a set plan. But then is the final challenge. The one on one combat." She looks scared. "Until serious injury. Brojen bones, bloody scratches, possibly lethal. The Bears, or mammals, are the running champs. Im glad ik not the chosen fighter." She shudders. I do to, having seen the games for the first time last year. "Who was chisen from your team?" I ask Amber. "Oak." She replies. "You mean Jason! You cant send him to fight!" Amber laughs. "He volunteered! Probably to impress you." She adds. "Don't be crazy!" I say indignantly. Amber grins. "So who is it on your team." She asks me. I go silent. Her smile fades. "Its you, isnt it." I nod silently. "They felt that if they were to lose any way, they may as well send out the most expendable." Amber looks at me sadly then fiercely. "Then your just going to show them how strong you really are! Just because you seem weak doesnt mean you are. They have never seen you fight." Amber says fiercely. I nod, surprised and happy. I see the clock and gasps. "Room wake up!" I wisper and slip out. I race back to my room silently and slip in. I try to slow my breathing and heart rate as i wait silently, smiling.

Didn't care for it too much. Three stories were sufficient to decide.

After reading STORYTELLER all I can say that it was different from all other stories I have encountered. From the beginning of each of the 9 stories, I found myself intrigued and dying to know what would happen next. Each story holds a mesmerizing tale, and in many cases they end with your mind still trying to create a “what's next” scenario. M. Teresa Clayton not only bends the normal world to her will, but fills it with things that many of us never could have imagined. She creates breath-taking plots that whisk you into far off worlds, pushing your mind to the limit as you become the characters that she has brought to life. Every second was a pleasure, whether I was admiring her characters or reveling in the scenario. It is imaginative and original, and I would not deem any of the stories as similar to ones I have previously read. They are new and fresh, filled with so many levels of entertainment that I can't possibly describe the feelings they evoke. In all honesty, though I had my four favorites, every single story was a joy to read. Plot and characters aside, it is even enjoyable just by the way that the story is structured. From diction to syntax, all the components worked together flawlessly to keep me hooked into what I was reading. So many times you read a story that has great concepts, but horrible organization, and you find yourself zoning out. On the other end of the spectrum, you have superb writing but two-dimensional ideas. To all who haven't read it, STORYTELLER has the perfect balance of both and you will not be disappointed!
