A Review of Larvae by Robert Forrester

The larvae have a secret weapon …Us.

-Goodreads Synopsis

My Review of Larvae

 Larvae was an interesting, fast-paced horror/thriller that caught my attention right away. Its the perfect dash of creepy that you want in a short story, and even though it was satisfying, you could definitely see the story being easily expanded a bit.

Now, I’m normally a bit grouchy about finding lots of spelling and punctuation mistakes in the stories that I read, but especially so when I’m reading short stories. If what is written is less than 50 pages long, especially, there is no excuse whatsoever for multiple mistakes.  Larvae needs another round of editing.

Overall, its worth the read, especially considering its completely free on Amazon right now (or at least it was at the time of this posting.
