Inversion by Charles Scott is a short story by up and coming writer Charles Scott. The book description offered only a slight insight into what the book might be about, so naturally I was curious.

Book Description:

A dark ritual begins a journey with no end in sight…

The debut short story of author Charles Scott.

Overall Review: 4.5/5

My only dislike about this story was the fact that it was so short. Granted, I realize that when something is presented as a “short story” that one shouldn’t go in expecting a tome, but I’m unaccustomed to seeing short stories offered in their own right on Amazon that are less than 10 pages in length. With that being said, I thoroughly enjoyed “Inversion”. Scott’s tone was delightfully dark and sinister, there was plenty of violent language/disgusting imagery to satisfy my diabolical, gorehound side, and the words were generally well chosen. The tone is far from the conversational sort that I’m accustomed to reviewing on this blog, so be prepared for more elevated language. (In this particular instance, it really works.)

I look forward to seeing more from this author. If you have Kindle Unlimited and are a horror fan with a few spare minutes, you can’t afford not to download “Inversion.”
