My Review
Last Light is a collection of short horror stories involving a mysterious bed of water, a man afraid of storms, a woman with a crappy boss, and even a little old lady who really loves cats.
I'm a sucker for short horror stories. I love them so much, even when collections tend to be hit or miss. And while not every story appealed to me, most of them did. And that last story... it reminded me of my grandma, who has been gone for 16 years, and I may have shed some tears.  
Each story is its own unique tale, but I think my favorites were Living Water (I love a good revenge story), Last Touch (obvious how it will end, but still fun), Labour Shortage (again, I love a good revenge tale), Light Dusting (weird, and kinda obvious, but I enjoyed it), and Lasting Memories (the last story mentioned above).
If you're a fan of short horror stories and/or have read anything else by Chris Coppel, give this collection a whirl. You'll be sure to find at least one story to enjoy.
3.5 stars.

Chris is able to write gentle fable-like adventures (Far From Burden Dell) as well as opening the pages into dark and terrifying stories where dimensions co-exist with indescribable evil.
