When Night Falls by Kayla Krantz

When Night Falls is a collection of psychological thrillers and poems that deal with emotional battles, facing the darkness within, and life or death situations. Most are under ten minutes and full of action. Some are slower and focus on the philosophical aspect—contemplating the tendencies of human nature, life and death, and the what-ifs we all consider from time to time. However, none of these stories lack suspense. Some of the endings were rather abrupt and I wished the author had gone a bit farther, but many leave you with something to contemplate, speaking to you on an emotional and even moral level. I feel like the author’s biggest strength is conveying emotion so well that you can feel the character’s anguish as her internal struggles become your own. I highly recommend this collection for a quick and thought-provoking read before bedtime.
