Publisher's Summary

Laid out upon these frail leaves is a banquet of delectable misfortunes and savory tragedies. Partake of these melancholy morsels of bile and brine, of wrath and regret. Sample vintages of fermented tears and distilled blood. Lick the sharp edges of cursed blades, and nibble frail hopes set on platters of tarnished silver. Strange sorrows warp the palette of perception and bring about subtle ruin and uncanny vigor. Indulge in the filling robustness of Tainted Steel.

I've got tainted love for these tainted tales

Tainted Steel: Tales of the Weird and Woeful is a collection of short stories, just under 20 in total, that lives up to its name. The writing is great, and the stories most definitely entertain and captivate the listener. The stories are short, and this is a good thing. They come in, pack a punch, and move on so that you are ready for the next gut punch or ear twist. The writing style is sublime, and some of these stories feel like they have been around for hundreds of years, and yet they do not seem stale or as if they don't belong in the present day. Each one clocks in under 20 minutes for the most part.

Montooth is amazing. Audiobooks live and die by their narrators, and he gives this book a real flavor that plain text cannot convey. He is a fantastic reader, and his talent for weaving words that act like earworms burrowing into your mind is just plain scary. He does a phenomenal job keeping you listening.

5 Stars all around.
