Taken by masked men in the night, a host of British people find themselves at the mercy of unknown abductors. They cannot guess where they are going, or why they are going there. When they find an arsenal of medieval weapons in their new prison, horrific possibilities are imagined. When the cruel reality of their fate is revealed to them, they must learn a new way of life. Fight or die. There is nowhere to run…

The author asked me to review this story… At first I was shocked at how long it was! It said it would take me 20 hours to read! But I soon got into it, then I was hooked. I know I say this a lot but this really is a one of a kind story which I’ve never read anything similar to before. It’s brilliant… I don’t know what else to say than it is a must read!! Cruel Reality does have a lot of fighting in it and killing so be warned. The ending had me happy and mad as there is one question that I NEED answering (I will try to find out). You know I don’t like giving anything away in books as it takes the fun away! This story is perfect for readers who enjoy a book packed with action, killing, fighting, horror (ish), thriller and mystery. One I would highly recommend to you all! Even if it takes you a while to finish it, it is well worth reading I promise you.
Had me hooked, thrilled, a real page turner, addicted, fast paced and I enjoyed every minute of it. Enjoy, I did.

Thanks to the author for letting me read and review his short story (55 Pages). This isn’t my usual kind of book I would normally read! At first I found it a bit wierd and fast paced but then it got better and I started to enjoy it. I must warn you there is A LOT of swearing and violence in this story especially at the beginning. I personally found a few parts throughout very dark. I managed to read this story in just over an hour… It is a very one of kind story that would be perfect for readers who enjoy fantasy, action, weird, killing, violence and drugs sort of stories, ideally men. I found the ending just stopped and it could have been made much more interesting to have found out what would have happened after. However, I did enjoy it even though at first I was a bit unsure… Very wierd!! It is written well with short chapters. I will be reading more by this author as I’m intrigued! I awarded four stars because I was shocked at first with all the bad language and especially some of the darker bits. But as a relatively new author it is not a bad short story at all! What to read something really wierd? Give this a try!!
