    My mother always told me to never trust a man with two first names so I knew when I started 'Dark Albion' by David Brian that I would be dealing with a tricky author ; What my mother didn't tell me is that those men with two first names make the best storytellers around'Dark Albion' starts off with the story 'The boy on the beach' one of the longer entries It is a uniue captivating tale comprised of a mix of fantasy and horror Very intriguing David is such an excellent storyteller that he pulls you right into the narrative This is one tale whose visuals you will not forget long after you finish reading Nightwalker Let me start by explaining that I am sick to death of vampires Had I realized that I was about to read a vampire story I might have skipped over this one Luckily I didn't It is not what you would expect from your average vampire tale but as I read of David's work I am starting to see the rhythm and how much he likes to turn the tables on the reader Very short story that sucks you right in in ways than one winkSins of the Father great little tale about an assassin David is adept in taking a theme that has been used a billion times and then creating something totally unexpected I could even see this story fleshed out a bit and turned into a novel This story is ironic to say the leastHalfway House; this was one of my favorite stories Again the story starts off like something you have read a thousand times but with David there is always a catch a spin a flip of your preconceptions This story has some great themes about forgiveness penance redemption and punishments befitting the crimes The title of the story is pure perfectionDark Albion a sexy story Unfortunately it was one that I did not care for To me the tell was too obvious Nightlife very uniue take on the age old story of boy meets girl I loved the twists and the irony of the story The only issue was that I thought the wrap up could have been done differently without having to give it away Instead the clues to the girl's true identity could have been planted throughout the story This would have given the story a whole new layer for the reader to contemplateBlack terrific little poem about a family's pet dog Made me think of the nursery rhymes of old Excellent imageryA New Beginning great little tale and befitting its place as the last chapter in the book Again we see themes of redemption and forgiveness This story took a turn I did not expect which is the highest compliment I can pay this author as I pride myself on not being easy to fool even by men with two first namesI am enamoured with David's stories They take you on a nice carpet ride and then pull the rug out from under your feet You are constantly left with the satisfaction of having read a well structured tale by an accomplished storyteller His characters are so intriguing that you are saddened by the fact that the story is now over I can't wait to read 'Kaleen Rae' If you are looking for a new author and want to test drive his work I would recommend this collection of short stories You can thank me later ;

    I’ve literally read this back to back with another smaller collection by the author The first one passed the muster so I figured a proper length one should be ok too and it was I liked this title too Albion no one uses that any and it’s lovely But anyway another fun collection of frights and nightmares Again the first and longest story is the best The rest vary but almost inevitably entertain the cheesier ones and disturb the darker psychological ones Again there’s something of a formula when it comes to the twist endings but I really do enjoy twist endings so try to be forgiving toward the plot convolutions is takes to get there Overall this one read very very uickly and proved to be a pleasant as much as such a thing can be diversion for maybe 100 minutes or so I’m really glad I decided to give the author another go it seems that the uality of work certainly merits it Genre fans should find a lot in this collection to enjoy
