Review: Unknown Sender by Ryan Lanz


3 stars

Read on June 18, 2015 — I own a copy

Synopsis: Jessica’s world revolves around studying at college and affording prepackaged meals, which leaves little time for socializing. In fact, she is quite content without being noticed, which only makes the attention of a mystery texter all the more unwanted.

She isn’t unfamiliar with strange advances, but this is something entirely different. This person knows things about her. Things beyond just an average stalker.

Even after all that, Jessica would be much more content to forget than discover who is chasing her, electronically or otherwise. Eventually, she finds out that she can’t outrun her past.

Bookish Things: 25 pages. The cover is different. I like it.

Where to buy: Amazon on kindle for $1.00

My Review:

Bookshelves: blog-review-req, indie-author, indie-review-copies, 3-star-review, thriller

Ryan’s short thriller story starts out like most thriller story lines these days. A young, attractive girl at school campus, a friend (usually geeky or less attractive) is with her and the thrilling aspect of the story unfolds.

This isn’t to say the short story is bad, in fact it’s interesting, the use of mobile phone messages was a more modern twist, though since the Scream days, it’s a tad cliche.

I liked the twist ending, but to be honest, I kind of expected something of the sort.

The writing was easy to read and quite appropriate for the genre and style. I’d just have liked something a little more original than what was covered.

Try this short story if you like thrillers like Scream and I know what you did last summer. The length makes it an easy 30min-1hr read.

**Note: I was provided an electronic copy of this book in return for an honest review**
