... Shortly after Dzon had taken up his chant, the Igor character returned to Fr. Adamson from the darkness, baring a long curved knife, with which he open up the throat of the priest from ear to ear. Blood spurted from the wound and the priest thrashed wildly against his bonds, but within seconds ... Read review

The Felix Horror

AdvantagesNot half bad

DisadvantagesNot my best work either

"...to face the newcomer, a short middle-aged man, wearing a dark suit complete with the dog-collar of a Catholic priest. "Who the hell are you and what are you doing here?" said Booker, so shocked by the sudden appearance that any kind of protocol left his head. "I'm Father Adamson," said the priest, stepping from the doorway and pacing further into the room, "I've come help you." "Help me? How?" replied Booker. "I have two pieces of information ..."

Bend & Break 3

Advantagesclears up the cliffhanger

Disadvantagesdefinetley not my best.

"This is a small one compared to my other two… it's pretty much just a story to give you a little insight into one of the profilers past and to clear up the cliff-hanger from the last one. Hopefully my next one will be better, as I should be better then. Hopefully. ===Chapter 1=== As Allie walked into the Bureau she could feel all eyes on her. News of who the unsub from the previous case has obviously been the topic of conversation while ..." Read review
