Publisher's Summary

This is a set of several audiobooks in the fantasy, contemporary, horror, mystery, and romance genre, just for some variety. 

You’ll get the following volumes:

Fantasy book one: Dreamy fantasy stories have actually been a trend. They’ve inspired millions. As opposed to the lengthy novels, these stories are short but cut to the chase in an instant.

Fantasy book two: Take yourself to a random realm where impossible things become possible. Dare to dream and imagine things that couldn’t exist in our present existence. In this fantasy anthology, some young heroes as well as heroines come around in these epic stories; they locate clues and handle challenges, enchanting or mundane, in this action-packed urban dream anthology. 

Contemporary: All of them evolve around themes you may be familiar with in your own life. In a fictional setting, these issues come to light to help you think and enjoy the entertainment value of it at the same time. Such issues include:

  • Rebellion, pop-culture, being different, and dealing with special gifts.
  • Loneliness, being an orphan, and being rejected.
  • Becoming extremely wealthy, famous, or talented.
  • Sexual themes related to the law of attraction and the importance of it in someone's life. 

Horror: This anthology of short stories contains many different elements fans of the horror and mystery genre will enjoy, such as:

  • Time travel and playing around with the change of events.
  • Zombies and outbreaks of the undead in apocalyptic scenarios.
  • Survival in times when things get tough.
  • Ghosts and the appearance of those from the other side to warn and scare their victims.
     

Mystery: Entertain yourself by listening to these short stories that all contain one or more secrets: A murder, a theft, a hidden identity, or some mystical disappearance. Dive beneath the world of lies and spark your curiosity as you listen and satisfy your cravings for closure. These stories contain elements such as:

  • The search for magical items that could instantly change a person’s life.
  • Vanishing items that need to be retrieved.
  • Detective searches for perpetrators and suspects.
  • Misleading tricks from double-agents to get to the bottom of a con.
  • Murder mysteries with motives, who-done-it settings, lies, and cover-ups.
  • Conspiracies and hidden agendas.
  • A werewolf and the puzzle of figuring out who it is.
  • Unexpected plot twists about presumptions of labelling certain parties as the good guys or the bad guys.
  • Police investigations and car chases.
  • Magical and supernatural powers and intricate disasters.
  • And so much more....
     

Romance: While listening through several short stories, you will come across a series of emotions, highlights, and communication differences that will set these tales apart from others, still allowing you to bask of the generous light of the genre you are attached to. Such highlights and happenings include things like:

  • Arguing, resisting, kissing, and making up.
  • Marriage proposals, and the entire game leading towards that special moment.
  • Princesses in castles who don’t feel like they get what they deserve.
  • Vampires and their peculiar dealings with actual human beings.
  • Perspectives from males and females who experience the same occurrence but feel differently about it.
  • Cross-cultural relationships and particular feelings attached to them.

Fun and engaging

This book has a lot of short stories. I don't even remember how many. But for the credit, it's a good value. I recommend it for others, because I enjoyed most of the stories myself, and that was worth it to me.

Wow

Simply.... wow. Is this a good book bundle or what? I don't think I can sum it all up, since it contains 26 hours of stories (almost 27) that are all told in a slightly different way, with their own spin on it. Very relaxing to listen to all these tales. Good for a few days of lying down and getting into a fictional world.

Loved it

I loved it. I don't know about anybody else, but I enjoyed every minute of it. I think the stories were fun and sometimes a little tense, but most times, pretty lighthearted. The narrator was the best part. He really got into it and brought the stories to life with voices and voice acting.

Really good

I loved these stories. They were short, not too deep, but that's exactly what I liked. To the point, and simple. Good to hear that.

Nice, fun...

There is 27 hours of narration. I'm sure that at least SOME of these stories will be entertaining enough to you. I liked most of them. Not a single complaint.

Plots are weak at best.

I love all these genres but these stories just didn't do anything for me!

I bought and listened to this on the road with my partner and both of us had a tough time following where each story was going.

Stories have weak plots and somewhat boring, random dialogue that lead up to nothing exciting.

We listened to four stories, and I eventually fell asleep. Maybe that's not such a bad thing but I was looking for something exciting/interesting but it all seemed a bit cliche.

Narrator was not my cup of tea either, that is always very subjective though. I'm just glad I can exchange it.

Take this with a grain of salt, other people seem to like it!

just bad

this reads like a 5 yo wrote it. the stories are nonsensical, the moral are plain old brain dead. No Depth, no character, no story thread, nothing of substance.
