Hardened Hearts is a collection of short stories about heartbreak which was sent to me by an author that, after reading, I am sure is a genius. 17 different stories by 17 authors ranging from the paranormal to the extraordinarily ordinary fill these pages. Once I began this I was unable to put it down and was interested in how such wildly different pieces could be connected. Click on the book cover to read my review of this collection.~ Harlyn B.
Hardened Hearts | Official Synopsis:
17 stories of difficult love, broken hearts, lost hope, and discarded truths. Love brings pain, vulnerability, and demands of revenge. Hardened Hearts spills the sum of darkness and light concerning the measures of love; including works from Meg Elison, author of The Book of the Unnamed Midwife (Winner of the Philip K. Dick Award), Tom Deady, author of Haven (Winner of the Bram Stoker award for Superior Achievement in a First Novel), Gwendolyn Kiste, author of And Her Smile Will Untether the Universe and Pretty Marys All in a Row, and many more.
Hardened Hearts dips from speculative, horror, science fiction, fantasy, into literary and then out of the classifiable and into the waters of unpinned genres, but pure entertainment nonetheless.
