    Conduit of souls is a collection of six horror stories with adult themes throughout Guy Bailey s stories expertly tackle subjects like astral projection, cannibalism, time travel and the supernatural There is never an element of boredom as the stories are short and fast paced In addition, Bailey cleverly reintroduces two characters of Witch in Never Linger but around a new scenario The characters might appear normal but don t be taken in for a minute for they have hidden agendas which Conduit of souls is a collection of six horror stories with adult themes throughout Guy Bailey s stories expertly tackle subjects like astral projection, cannibalism, time travel and the supernatural There is never an element of boredom as the stories are short and fast paced In addition, Bailey cleverly reintroduces two characters of Witch in Never Linger but around a new scenario The characters might appear normal but don t be taken in for a minute for they have hidden agendas which leave the reader feeling quite uneasy, you never know what lies around the corner The sexually explicit scenes are probably meant to take the edge of the horror but I must admit the eerie stories gave me goose bumps Conduit of souls would definitely make an ideal Valentine s Day gift for adults who enjoy reading horror

    I had the pleasure of reading Conduit of Souls while taking a break from work To be honest, I wasn t really sure what to expect so I went into each story blind and I think this is the best way to experience these stories Conduit of Souls is a collection of 6 stories and each one is masterfully told Ranging from erotica to horror, each story starts out strong and ends with you feeling satisfied in the conclusion I was impressed by how Bailey was able to move each story along at a brisk pace I had the pleasure of reading Conduit of Souls while taking a break from work To be honest, I wasn t really sure what to expect so I went into each story blind and I think this is the best way to experience these stories Conduit of Souls is a collection of 6 stories and each one is masterfully told Ranging from erotica to horror, each story starts out strong and ends with you feeling satisfied in the conclusion I was impressed by how Bailey was able to move each story along at a brisk pace while avoiding unnecessary filler.The first story, Loves Me Not really sets the tone for the rest of the book Sometimes I feel like stories in collections such as these are all over the place and can jump too far from one genre to another Bailey does a good job of keeping the overall theme as the first story combines the horror, etroica, and supernatural elements into one complete package that serves to prepare you for what the rest of the stories have to offer I don t want to give too much away, but this story follows the life of Randal Wade who is an ex college football player who is married with two children Certain events that happened in the past have shaped who he is and what his life has become in ways he couldn t even imagine As the overall plot unfolds, it leads to a conclusion that makes an impression on you Perhaps there s a lesson there somewhere, but I think Bailey leaves this up to interpretation.The other stories are just as good, too They cover everything from deja vu, reincarnation, and things that go bump in the night Fans of the various genres will be pleasantly surprised So take a few moments to check out Conduit of Souls, you really can t go wrong if like engaging fiction

    I m a self proclaimed fan of Mr Bailey s Mystery Loves Romance series This collection of stories mostly consisting of genres I generally wouldn t pick up as a 1st choice proves I m simply a fan of the author, not just the series I was hooked from the first tale as disturbing as Loves Me Not was I found myself reading through tired, bloodshot eyes to reach the end of one story, just to rally and jump into the next I can imagine I looked as scary at the end of the book as I imagined so I m a self proclaimed fan of Mr Bailey s Mystery Loves Romance series This collection of stories mostly consisting of genres I generally wouldn t pick up as a 1st choice proves I m simply a fan of the author, not just the series I was hooked from the first tale as disturbing as Loves Me Not was I found myself reading through tired, bloodshot eyes to reach the end of one story, just to rally and jump into the next I can imagine I looked as scary at the end of the book as I imagined some of the characters to look It was well worth the sacrifice, though what a great read I enjoyed each of the tales individually, but my favorites were Wallflower Girl for the touching love story and Plain Jane which featured an out loud chuckle I got at the end, with the reaction of family to the grandfather Never Linger would be a close 3rd I guess, but they re all pretty memorable and certainly very enjoyable Thanks, AGAIN, Mr Bailey, for another great read

    Not brain candy Don t get me wrong I loves me some brain candy, but this collection of shorts is nothing like a light read It s very adult, very thoughtful reading The most fascinating part of the book is that, while it has some horror elements, it s not meant solely to horrify The author skillfully, and almost without our permission, makes us think about what it is to be human or a monster He does this by examining the monstrous things human beings can do one to another, some of them very Not brain candy Don t get me wrong I loves me some brain candy, but this collection of shorts is nothing like a light read It s very adult, very thoughtful reading The most fascinating part of the book is that, while it has some horror elements, it s not meant solely to horrify The author skillfully, and almost without our permission, makes us think about what it is to be human or a monster He does this by examining the monstrous things human beings can do one to another, some of them very everyday types of infractions, but the consequences are as horrific as any horror movie plot line At least, that s my take away Trying to avoid spoilers here You truly just have to read this one to see what I mean Highly recommend this author
