I really enjoyed this book. It unravels at a steady pace and as the tension intensifies so does the intricacies of the plot. As I went from one chapter to the next, I kept wondering how is this going to end? Frey has created a tense, enthralling thriller with elements of a harsh criminal underworld and yet there are moments of tenderness. With simple, clean descriptions, it's a story of 'everyday' people's fears, hatred and willingness to survive - no matter what. A highly recommended read.

I thought that this was a very well written thriller that kept my attention throughout. I would recommend this to everyone who enjoys fast-paced thrillers.
Phillip Frey proves with Dangerous Times that he can deliver a tightly written page-turner that will leave you waiting for the sequel. Indeed, the way in which this author completes this novel promises that there will be a second story to follow up on the characters Frey has created. I hope he doesn't wait too long to write it.

I was a little skeptical when starting this book, but man was I wrong. It takes a few pages for the author to grab you, but when he does he doesn't let go until the last page. Do not miss this one.

HYM and HUR $0.99 USD

In this fantasy-comedy eBook, Hym and Hur are a young couple who never age and have been in love for more than a century.  They also possess an array of magical abilities, two of which are either to play pranks on humankind or to perform good deeds.  Enacting both at the same time is now what gets them into trouble, especially since it's the unruly character of Death they must deal with to bring their plans to fruition.

The prank Hym and Hur have come up with must first be agreed upon by Death, who happens to be a rambunctious, difficult character.  Once agreed upon, the prank is set in motion.  Hym and Hur soon discover Death had tricked them into a contract with dire consequences for all of us.

During their attempt to break the contract, Hym and Hur try to save the relationship of an earthbound couple, knowing they are truly meant for each other.  A good deed that will bring Hym and Hur even more trouble.

Anyone here old enough to remember the Twilight Zone? How about the early short stories of Isaac Asimov? If you are you'll get my meaning when I say reading Hym and Hur was like watching an episode of the Twilight Zone or reading one of Asimov's early stories. It has that "old time" feel to it which I find comforting and refreshing. Not many people write the way the "old masters" did and I think that's a shame.

Hym and Hur is a brief, but interesting concept that perhaps could be expanded on a bit, but still, it gets the story across in a fun way that made me feel as though I was sitting in front of the old black and white TV we had when I was a kid watching Rod Serling introduce this week's show.
Definitely worth reading.

This short story is whimsical, romantic and ethereal. Lovely read. Really put me in a good mood. I happened upon this because I read Mr. Frey's other book "Dangerous Times." He is truly adept at switching genres. I am looking forward to what he does next.
