ULR Feature: Deadly Vows by Robert Marsh


In life or death, sometimes the actions toward another person are not forgotten. The invasions of another persons mind set can cause the viewer to take a step back, sit up and imagine that the enemy does not see what is coming. They are in the inner part of the enemy head to feel the pain and not mix it up.
In a new line up of horror stories, Mr. Marsh takes us to the existence that there is more to life and death that we already know. Marsh focuses hard on showing us the different views of how pain and a doormat person can live inside us all and not realizing it until it is to late.


Marsh mind set is so strong on the death of him, that he sheds a dark light just to allow us to read a little concerning the demons inside us all. The style he shows is very conversational and straight forward in his own dark ways.

A book inside a book, “The Deadly Vows” is the mindset of Mr. Marsh. “The Deadly Vows” is powerful and offers us to see the evil we care not to see. The question after reading this book is, “Is it safe to go out again, knowing that there are people that are out there with his mindset. The “The Deadly Vows” is a dark and painful raw emotions book to read and it bares a spectrum of themes to comprehend.


Book Review

“This is a very good book, it is a collection of short stories written by the author. Each story contains an emotional overview of his feelings. The character development is good, the plot development is good, and the characters are believable and enjoyable. They jump right off of the page at you and pull you into their story.

I like reading books where I feel like I actually know the characters and this one did not disappoint. The storys flow really well, and they keep you turning page after page and totally engrossed in their stories.

This book is unique and it is original,the the result is a book that had me hooked from page one. I will definitely look for and buy more books from this author. This is definitely one to put on your must read list.” – Amazon Reviewer

ULR Feature: Macabre Tales by Tony Thorne MBE

MACABRE TALES – If you stop to think about everyday things happening in your life, and then turn a speculative, scientific, but definitely weird glare on that activity, you would begin to
understand the type of stories written by Tony Thorne MBE. For instance, his parting tale, WASHOUT, describes how a man finds his wife frozen in place by fright, holding a knife, standing near their washing machine. I loved the ending of this one! I found Tony Thorne more droll than truly gruesome. His concepts are clever, his writing sharp and quickly to the point and he closes with a quiet flourish. He delves into personal areas, our daily lives and asks you to consider the alternatives that are conceivably possible, if only… But then, again, there really might be a bit of truth just waiting to be scientifically researched and created! Highly recommended for a true exploration of the macabre. – GABixlerReviews

Macabre Tales is a collection of short stories that will amuse and entertain you to no end. These are stories that I would be comfortable sharing with family and friends. Each story is moderately short, so if you don’t have a lot of time for reading, this would be a great choice. I found myself on the edge of my seat during one story, then smiling and chortling during the next. This collection is very imaginative, and original.    macnew
