5.0 su 5 stelle He successfully kept me on the edge of my seat as I paged through from one story to the next in FLIGHT OF DESTINY—a fantastic co 16 settembre 2015
Di Frank Scozzari - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
Francis H. Powell is a masterful storyteller. He successfully kept me on the edge of my seat as I paged through from one story to the next in FLIGHT OF DESTINY—a fantastic collection of 22 short stories. Here he weaves humor, surrealism, and contradictions into tales that reveal errors in commonly accepted definitions. Each story is uniquely different with twisting endings and story plots that challenge commonly accepted concepts. The characters are true and undeniably out-of-the-ordinary. Such stories as DUKE and FLAWLESS will bring into question all you thought you knew about people and the universe —I know they did me. These stories kept me guessing until the last page.

As with all great literature, these tales provide excellent food for thought. There is a bitter sweetness to humanity, in terms of what man is capable of doing to one another. In FLIGHT OF DESTINY this paradox is magnified, examined, and spit out in artful, literary way that is brilliantly captivating.

5.0 su 5 stelle An awesome reading experience 25 ottobre 2015
Di RB - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
First of all a special thanks to the author for gifting me his new release for a review. I must admit, "Flight of Destiny" took to me a new level of short stories where every story ends with an amazing end, mostly unexpected in normal thoughts. Be it characterisation, story telling, scene setting or vocabs - in all respect I found the book to be a must read for all short story lovers. I cannot help but rate it 5 out of 5.

A suggestion to the author - he can think of reducing the length of some of the plots to make a more crisp content and together can increase the no of stories in his next title. That might help his readers to enjoy more of Francis in one book. :)

I wish Francis all the best with his book. I believe it would rock the market for sure. It has all that can make a bestseller. :)

5.0 su 5 stelle Flight of Destiny takes off on a thrilling an ironic ride 24 ottobre 2015
Di Derek Ailes - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
A collection of 22 short stories dealing with down on their luck individuals who get their revenge in ironic ways. I got a kick out of how each of the stories ended. "Bug Eyes" had a Shakespearean-style ending. "Seed", one of my favorites in the anthology shows how neglected women married to military officers turn to other soldiers to satisfy their needs. "Mutant" gives a new meaning to human art. "Little Mite" proves that you can take a prank too far. Each story is an interesting read. A couple of the stories almost takes us into the bizarro realm. Give this anthology a try.

4.0 su 5 stelle Very surrealistic read! 28 novembre 2015
Di Varun - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile
A great quick read- Francis has done his research which makes the stories very engaging and has a 'real feel' to it. The stories are very original and unique, somewhat unusual but in a good way. "Seed", about military wives was one of my favorites- it felt the most real and I felt people would connect to it easily. "Cast from hell" was the most original in my opinion. The author has shown the potential for a lot of promising ideas and I hope to read more from him. A very surrealistic read.
3.0 su 5 stelle A good read. 5 dicembre 2015
Di Mark Taylor - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

This review has to be a game of two halves.

Firstly, to Powell's writing.

This is the first time that I have read Francis H. Powell. I hope though, not the last. The stories within these pages are well written, and strangely articulate. Powell has a style of writing that is unusual to find within the pages of a collection of horror shorts. His choice of words careful, each sentence seems to be crafted, rather than written. Which is, of course, excellent.

As with any collection, the stories themselves contain a variety of shocks, some signposted and holding no great shock, others standout and again, crafted, with skills.

Standout stories for me must include:

Cast From Hell: a wicked little tale, the last in the collection, and going out with a bang. A man cast from Hell within a woman's body... and I can say no more without spoiling. But it's excellent.

Bug-Eyes: A mother dis-owning her son because of his looks and the redemption years on...

Slashed: Shall we say, artistry gone wrong? You'll have to read to find out.

That said, there were no stories that I found left a bad after taste in my mouth. All positive points.

My only real criticism of Powell's stories is that on occasion they finished a little quickly. Abruptly. Story, story, story, twist, end. Sometimes I wanted to know the reaction of the characters, but this style of twist-ending is common, and I felt was a wonderful representation of the old Tales of the Unexpected television program.

There is however a bad side to the review.

The second half: the editing and editorial within the piece.

Immediately upon opening the book I was presented with the Foreword of the book, written, I noted by one of the editors of the book. Surprised as I was to find it was now a Forward. So immediately I was put off, assuming this represented the quality of Powell's writing, which of course it doesn't.

However, the quality of editing is not of a standard that I expect from a book published through a house, one "Savant Books and Publications", with two credited editors. Progressively more noticeable throughout the book are editorial errors and mistakes, proving on occasion to be a little off-putting.

But it takes nothing away from Powell's writing. Of that I assure.
