My review 

Red Ink by Russ Colchamiro – 3 stars 

I really enjoyed this novella, we follow Isaac who imagines himself as a spy and ends up in a spot of bother. Isaac is a really interesting character to follow as we see that even though he is only 14 years old he has dealt with so much and hasn’t properly dealt with that. Unfortunately due to this he lashes out at the people he cares about. 

Dani, Isaac’s best friend was a really great character. You can really tell she cares so much about Iaasc and only wants what is best for him. I really enjoyed the atmosphere created in this book, it was quite tense and kept me really intrigued throughout this story. This was a really solid novella. 

The Devil Deliquents by Sawney Hatton – 4 stars 

I wasn’t really sure what I was getting into when I started this novella but boy I got a hell of a lot. We follow two main characters Cal and Derry who are you typical bad teenagers smoking weed, drinking etc. They meet a new girl and end up doing some pretty horrible stuff in the name of Satan. 

This was a really dark story full of blood, gore and pretty horrible stuff. Our main characters are not likable at all but I could see exactly how they got wrapped up in all of the satanic craziness that was Natalie. 

Natalie has had some traumatic things happen to her and turns towards the Devil to worship which leads to her being a little bit on the psychopath spectrum. She seems to have more emotions which was really interesting to follow with. 

This story ended up being very gruesome which I actually really enjoyed and kept me on the edge of my feet. I’ll definitely be looking out for more by this author. 

A many splendid thing by Patrick Thomas – 5 stars 

This story was more of a psychological thriller which I really loved. This is all about our main character who falls in love and has an affair with his science teacher. This was really twisty and turny that had me on the edge of my seat flipping the page wanting to know what’s happening. 

Although I did guess the final twist due to see this in previous stories i still really enjoyed this thriller novella and would definitely recommend it. 

Overall thoughts 

So there you have it my three reviews of the novellas in Murder in Montague Falls. This was definitely a fun and quick read which I would definitely recommend to horror and thriller fans!
