Short story review ‘No Strings’

  • Author: Jamie Stewart
  • Publisher: independently published
  • Publishing year: 2022
  • Number of pages: 27
  • My rating: 4/5


Jamie Stewart, the author who took you to Montague’s Carnival of Delights and Terror, presents a wicked tale of what happens when we sever the strings that bind us. No Strings is the story of Lyra, a child that is used to getting what she wants no matter what and what she wants right now is a prize. One of the ugly wooden dolls on display at the carnival.

Only the dolls don’t want to go with her.


Dolls are always great topics for horror stories (enough movies to prove that theory: dolls, child’s play…) also other indie writers like Jay Alexander and Jeremy Ray wrote great ‘living doll’ stories and there’s the one X-File episode written by Stephen King as well…
This time Jamie takes on the topic and it’s a hit again! The fear and suspense builds up nicely and there are two freakishly hellish dolls involved, sparing no one…
The only think I would’ve liked: more! These could become great villains in a series!
