Sonorous reviewed, the second

Greg Schwartz from Whispers of Wickedness reviews Apex Digest #9, saying this of my story:

The last story of the magazine is Sonorous by Paul Abbamondi. It’s written in second person point of view, present tense, which is a very hard way to make a story work, but the writer pulls it off in this one. Sonorous is a short (one-page) tale, very reminiscent of Stephen King’s The Langoliers. In spite of the brevity, the story manages to build up a sense of suspense and impending dread which draws the reader in. Flash fiction is often hard to do, but Abbamondi seems to have a good grasp of it.

The rest of the review can be found here.
