    When the members of your favourite GR group get together and write an anthology, you read said-anthology. That's like the first rule of Fight Club.

    Let's go over each part of this one:The Cover: Really nice. To me it looks like a postage stamp set showing each of the Seven Deadly Sins. (Which would be a pretty cool postage stamp set!)The Poem: I'm assuming Justin B. wrote this intro piece, pretty neat. I think each volume should have an opening poem like that.The Mortician's Temptation: Creepy. One thing that was interesting about this one was the fact the disturbing ending came as almost a relief after the creep out factor of the earlier parts of the story. It was almost like you were waiting with the anticipation (really the dread) of Will he or won't he? And when you read it, you'll know what I mean. Once again, creepy.The Hunger of Love: This one was disturbing as well. However, even in the midst of the horror a few things were funny. "When Harry Met Sally" for example. Also the part with eating the dog. I'm sure Justin could have really gone for the jugular and made that part sickening but he really didn't and for some twisted reason I thought it was a little funny. Sorry, Meno. I liked this one because it left you wondering just WHY it happened.The 49th Floor: I have to admit I sort of did see the ending coming, but I was glad to see it happen. This one was a Twilight Zone type story, and I'm a huge fan of the TW.The Nymph and the Nihilist: This one left with a similar feeling as The Hunger of Love, in that I wondered just WHY this happened. Also, out of all the disturbing things in this collection, I don't think anything grossed me out like the "moldy lasagna." I mean ew. It also had an unsetting "real world" feel to it, as I'm sure everyone has either been through a situation with a family member, or knows someone who has. (I mean the sick mother, not the monster part of course.)Bored Rage: This was probably the most shocking of the stories because it was a WTF type story. I think the author was going for a contrast in Love at First Sight vs. Hatred from Being Seen Too Much kinda thing. That ending was rough.In the Shadows: I have to say, Michael B. has one of the most original writing styles of any indie author I've read. His writing is just different. I could probably have read this collection without any author credits given, and picked out his story. I was lucky enough to read When Angels Fail before he pulled it for revision, and this story would have fit nicely in that collection. I will admit I sometimes feel his writing is over my head, but it's so creepy and entertaining I always enjoy reading it. This one didn't disappoint.Late: Another disturbing tale. I loved the setting, and the ending was a bit of twist. Then again, considering the other stories in the volume, I wasn't exactly expecting happily ever after.Overall this was a great collection of stories, and I am already looking forward to the next volume. Good job from everyone at The Fringe!

This is what you will encounter when you read Seven Deadly Sins Romance Horror Anthology from the Fringe. Want more?

It was written by a fiction writer's group on goodreads known as Fringe Fiction and all the authors did a great job with this collection. Be sure to check this book out on Smashwords and I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    An anthology of seven short stories that cross the romance and horror genres in a delightful blend of twisted love. The book starts with "The Mortician's Temptation" and the creepfest begins. Each tale reflects the biblical 7 Deadly Sins in this first outing for this group of very talented writers.Do all the stories click on all the cylinders? No, but it doesn't derail the book at all. A fast, fun read that should bring plenty of WTF moments to readers.

    A really quick break from all those full size books.Seven short stories by indie authors of Fringe Fiction Goodreads group, revolving around the theme of Biblical seven deadly sins.Just like any other anthology, good stories mix up with not so good ones. Sometimes it's clearly visible that those are indie authors with all their flaws (Bienvenue's story is definitely the best example of that) but there are also some perils.I might say, the further you go, the better it goes. While the anthology starts in a pretty slow and mediocre matter, it finishes in a great way. Although all the stories are really short and it should take more than a couple minutes to read each one, they have their depth.First two stories - didn't convince me at all. "The Mortician's Temptation" is just a mediocre story, "The Hunger of Love" loses pretty much on its apparent lack of proper proofreading. But then it gets much better. The next two ones are really decent - nothing really extraordinary though, but definitely the stories above average and worth reading. And then the last three - without a doubt the strongest asset of "Seven Deadly Sins".It's a really good, quick and solid lecture. Doesn't take much time, tackles the topic in a pretty decent way... given the fact that it's available for free, definitely something I might recommend.

    I am new to Goodreads and have this anthology to thank for it. I stumbled upon this while surfing through Smashwords. I will be checking out the other work done by these authors for sure.My review on Smashwords.An interesting spin on two staple genres and the classic theme of the seven sins.First to dispense with the general negatives. I didn't care for the poem. Just my preference, but it was a little hokey. Like most indie products, this piece would have benefited from more editing.Over all, the stories were great. They clearly sold the ideas of sin, horror, and romance. If I had to pick a favorite it would be the opening story, "The Mortician's Temptation." This story was really clever because it showed the MC's sin through the performance of his duties. Creepy on many levels and yet the author was able to create a sense of sensuality that was intriguing and disturbing at the same time. If I had to pick a least favorite it would be the closing story, "Late." It was written well, but a bit typical and safe. Neither of the primary characters were very interesting or sympathetic. It wasn't a bad story and I would still recommend giving it a read.
