Product Description

Beauty and Other Dangerous Things contains five speculative fiction shorts by author Jennifer Melzer, including Beauty, Hate, The Clockwork Heart, Skin and Between Moons.

Beauty--He's been chasing beauty down for years, wrenching her cold soul from every body it taints, but when the tide turns Brad Shaner discovers a centuries' old evil won't be so easily defeated.

Hate--Abby dangles on the edge of defeat, torn between saving or slaying the monster that has taken over her life.

The Clockwork Heart--Death offers Summer the chance to save her younger brother, but when the price becomes too high, she quickly learns some things are better left alone.

Skin--Haunted by longing for her dead husband, Katherine follows his faded dreams to his homeland in Scotland to learn a strange family secret he carried with him to the grave.

Between Moons--Seeking revenge on the werewolves that slaughtered her family when she was a little girl, Emalyn will take them down one by one until they’ll are dead. When she begins tracking Connor, she has every intention of cunning and seducing him to an early grave. She never expected to fall for the enemy, and when faced with the horrid reality of who and what he is, she’ll have to kill or be killed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark and Exciting! 25 April 2011

This collection of short stories was truly about dangerous things. All but one of the stories were pretty dark. My favorite short story was The Clockwork Heart. The author may be a self publisher but she knows what she's doing. Buy this, and you won't regret it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dark 7 June 2015

Pretty freakin dark. ... pretty freakin dark. Skin could easily be a standalone novel, I would read it. The rest reads like a journal for someone with mommy issues. It's, dare I say, dark.
