Cracked Spine Book Reviews
Killing It Softly 2 edited by Suzie Wargo Lockhart
Killing It Softly 2 is a big book. Thirty-eight stories to be exact. All by women. All unique. All terrifying. And all wonderfully well written. Kudos to editor Suzie Wargo Lockhart for putting together this superb collection. Killing It Softly 2 puts to rest the ridiculous notion that women can’t write horror. These stories hit hard, cut deep, and leave scars. I don’t usually single out individual stories in a review, but in this case, I will because these stories will stick with me for a very long while. “The Whims of My Enemy” by Amanda J. Spedding, “Scarecrow” by Vonnie Winslow Crist, “Death Warmed Over” by Rachel Caine, and my personal favorite “Bloody Rain” by Rie Sheridan Rose. While every one of these stories is cringe worthy and will make your skin crawl, some will also bring you to tears and some will make you cheer. Bloody amazing and highly recommended!
