    1. I Approached Cold as Hell by David Searl’s with a little trepidation mainly because it's my second Christmas horror story of the year and its not even May. Plus the first one was rubbish so hopefully this would bring horror back to the festive period of April.Peter and Ava are Christmas shopping with their seven year old twins when an electric train ride comes past, of course the kids want in and the adults won't fit in the carriages so Peter has to wait with Uncle Buster for the twenty minute [...]


    2. This was the first book by David Searls I have read. And I have to say not a bad start, looking forward to reading more of David's books in the future. The story starts out with Peter Craig going to the mall with his family, his wife Ava, two kids and Uncle Buster. The kids were seven year old twins named Ellie and Jack. They see this Electic train that rides on no tracks and want to go for a ride. Peter finds out that the ride will cost five dollars for both kids. So the kids go on the ride and [...]


    3. Here I go again, reading another tale of cheerful holiday spirit this Christmas! This time, it's a quick-read novella from DarkFuse that feeds into every parent's nightmare, following a man who he loses track of his twin children after letting them ride on a kiddie train for an 18-minute ride around the fancy outdoor mall on a cold and snowy night. Time seems to stop, people seem to not have seen the train or know that one even exists, and as his Uncle Buster and Santa Claus tell him: "things ar [...]


    4. This was my first read from David Searls, and I was very impressed. Peter and Ava are out Christmas shopping with their two twins, and an enigmatic Uncle Buster. As the title states, the cold plays a vital role in this story, permeating the atmosphere physically, mentally, and emotionally. When used in this manner, the setting can really make the story work so effectively, and Searls does a fantastic job with this!After letting the twins ride a small train around the mall for an "18 minute" ride [...]


    5. 6:42pmd holding.A very good quickie from Mr. Searls. This one reads fast and is a well written Twilight Zone-esque tale of a man and his search for his two childrend his sanity. My first Searls and I look forward to more from this author. Well done.


    6. David Searls works his magic once again, this time with a beautifully written, one-sitting read that appears to have been air-dropped straight out of the Twilight Zone.A story this tightly-told could have easily become a tangled mess in the hands of an artisan less skilled, but Searls mesmerizes as he deftly weaves this beautiful web of words, leaving the reader awash in the chilling heartache of loss.5 Stars. Recommended.


    7. 4.5*I received an E-arc from Darkfuse Publishing in exchange for an honest review.Peter has taken his family to do some Christmas shopping, his kids spy a Christmas themed electric train and even though the man operating the train gives Peter the willies he decides to let his kids go off unescorted for an 18min journey.His uncle advises him against it and stands waiting for their return whilst Peter decides to get out of the cold into the nearest bar as his wife, Ava, gets on with the shopping. [...]


    8. David Searls' COLD AS HELL is a mighty strong short story/novella that is driven by crisp writing, psychological suspense, and a mystery narrative straight out The Twilight Zone.While Christmas shopping with his family, Peter and his wife allow their kids to board a children's train ride around the outdoor shopping center, with Peter left behind as the designated watcher while she finishes shopping. Peter ducks into a nearby bar to beat the cold and catch a few minutes of a football game when he [...]


    9. Another first read of an author as I'm finishing up 2015 with a flurry of reads. Searls knocks this one out of the park. Craig is finishing up Christmas shopping with wife, the twins and his Uncle Buster. We've all been there. It's freezing cold in an outdoor mall and all you want to do is get inside somewhere warm. But for Craig, the twins want to go on a ride of a outdoor kiddie train and his wife leaves him there to wait for them while she goes off to shop some more. Craig has a hundred bucks [...]


    10. Excellent read about a father who loses his children at a mall at Christmas. "Things are not always what they seem. Highly recommended!


    11. I read this one while standing in line at Six Flags in the Texas heat. Trying to get some reverse psychology going. The bad news is, it didn't work - it was just dang hot.The good news is, it is a pretty cool story (groan). Peter is regretting letting his kids go on the kiddie train at the outdoor mall, despite the warnings of his uncle, when he really just wants to check out the game in the warm confines of the bar. But, as is said a few times in the story, all is not as it seems. Can't say a l [...]


    12. Cold as Hell is one of those stories that diving in to the plot at all in a review would ruin it. Peter loses his kids while Christmas shopping and things start to get weird. In the short length David Searls still manages to create sympathy for Peter, a character who starts out as a self-centered jerk. There are revelations but I have read this type of story before, so they weren't very surprising. The writing is top-notch though, so I will be sure to read more from David Searls, maybe in a long [...]


    13. Fourth offering by David Searls I've purchased, second thing I've read. The first read was his wonderfully written and sadly underrated first novel Yellow Moon; gladly reprinted by Samhain. This novella is further proof that Searls can write and write well. Deeply melancholic and insidiously creepy until the final reveal. Like one of the finer episodes of The Twilight Zone, Cold as Hell is the perfect length for this tale to be told and told it is. Along with Lisa von Biela's Skinshift, June was [...]


    14. This story really tricked me! Showing all signs for a creepy horror story, the story suddenly turned into something completely different and became unexpectedly dramatic and sad. At the end, it left me feeling moody and sorrowful for a while. Maybe it wasn't such a good idea to finish this on Christmas day


    15. An incredibly great novella to get everybody in the "Christmas Spirit". The story centering around a father on cold, cold day of Christmas shopping. David relates the tale of a father dealing with multiple realities in his life in the course of a few hours, told with amazing transitions of dialog. A definite must read. Kudos, David!!!


    16. Cold as Hell by David Searls is a relatively short novella that contains an emotionally chilling wallop. Peter Craig is Christmas shopping with his wife, elderly uncle and two kids at one of those “lifestyle” malls – which means it is outdoors. The weather is brutally cold, but he kids still want to ride an electric kiddie train that runs around the mall. The parents relent and allow the kids to go, despite the uncle’s warnings that things don’t seem quite right. The mom takes the oppo [...]
