Don’t Ask About The Guy In The Basement

Genre: Horror

 My Review

This is a very short story. Comes in at around 25 pages.

In those 25 pages, the author sucked me in and spit me out. A bit creeped out. And with a new appreciation for doing research, lots of it, before buying a new home.

A couple looking for their dream home can’t believe they actually found it. The only hitch, someone lives in the basement. He has a years lease. You can’t ask about him. Can’t go down there. Would you pass up your dream home for a measly 365 day mysterious guest?

They should have. Nough said about that.

Reminiscent of episodes you’d see on The Twilight Zone or Tales From The Darkside, this was creepy fun. It had a twisted ending that caught me by surprise. Probably should have seen it coming but the author did a good job of not giving me a clue.

If you’re a fan of twisted plots and short reads, give this one a go.

Synopsis

They found the perfect house. It was everything they wanted and more until their realtor told them about a man who lives in the basement. If they wanted to buy it, he’s part of the deal and he doesn’t want to be disturbed. They have to make the decision. Do they buy the house and live in it with a stranger living underneath or give up on their dream home? Their choice will thrust them into a situation way more than they bargained for.

Tainted Cure
The Rememdium Series Book 1
by Ashley Fontainne
Genre: Post-apocalyptic, SciFi
 
Scientists attempted to find a cure for addiction. They failed.
Dr. Everett Berning, a leading researcher into the causes of addiction in
the brain, spent ten years of his life dedicated to one thing:
finding the cure. Recruited after a strange encounter with the
enigmatic Dr. Roberta Flint, Director of Research on Code Name:
Rememdium, Dr. Berning is sent to work in a secret lab as part of the
research team.
When the moment the scientists waited on for years arrives, Dr. Flint
and her team are ecstatic.
Unfortunately,
not everyone in the world feels the same way.
Benito San Nicholas isn’t ready to give up his lucrative business. When the
news of a cure arrives on his doorstep from a crooked informant,
Benito enlists the help of other drug lords from around the world to
stop the cure from hitting the streets and destroying their
livelihoods.
What happens next ends up uniting the globe–just not the way society
ever intended or hoped.
.
.
Tainted Cure is a huge success on different levels. First, the story is
original, well thought-out, and brilliantly accomplished. It’s not
unusual to read books with dangerous products falling into the wrong
hands, but what happens when a good product falls into the wrong
hands? The characters are lovely and engaging, and readers will feel
inclined to connect with Dr. Everett Berning and the enigmatic
Roberta Flint. Benito is the epitome of evil, a greedy character that
readers will hate. Third, the pace is fast and there are so many
surprises and twists to keep readers turning the pages. Ashley
Fontainne has crafted an intriguing story that starts with a bang and
ends on a very high note. You can’t help but fall for this author’s
beautiful prose, her complex characters, and the oh-so-entertaining
read.” – Romuald Dzemo for Readers’ Favorite
