Do you believe that only what you can see exists? What if this isn't the case? Enter the mysterious world of the weird, wonderful and bizarre where nothing is as it seems in Bits & Bites by Michael S. Vassel. These eleven short stories will transport you to a place where anything is possible - from a dog and his friends taking their revenge on cruel humans, a love triangle that turns deadly, to an assassin couple on the run from their former crime family bosses and the bizarre relationship between Satan and his son. Some of the stories will take you on a journey through time and space, while others will show you there are consequences to every action and decision you make. From horror to fantasy, suspense, dark humor, and military fiction, there is a genre for everyone. But each story is connected with one common theme; nothing is ever how it seems. Prepare for the unexpected.
As you begin reading Bits & Bites by Michael S. Vassel, you will believe each of the eleven stories is a separate entity. It is only as you enter the world of the obscure with memorable storylines, will you realize that each story is cleverly linked with one another. The writing was magical, engaging, and ingenious. Each scenario was magnetic and thought-provoking, and could definitely be expanded to make great novels in their own right. The subject matter will catch you off guard. One moment the characters are dark, chilling, and unnerving; the next you are laughing out loud. This is an excellent example of human psychology, relationship dynamics, and the consequences of life choices. What I loved the most about these stories are the twists and turns in the plots and how each one delivered a powerful sting at the end. The author is so skilled at drawing the reader into the dark, mysterious world of the characters as they overcome situations that are not easily forgotten. I was left wondering about the characters and their predicaments long after the final page was turned. A superb collection of stories.
