Without Condition:

“If King’s Carrie had turned into a serial killer, and your setting was the backwoods country life, you’d have Without Condition. It’s a murderous mayhem of revenge and fix culminating in horrifying shows of unconditional love. I’ll never look at a beat-up old truck without apprehension again.” – Erin Al-Mehairi, author of Breathe. Breathe. Read more >>

“The entire book is a deep dive into the tortured mind of characters deeply scarred by the words of others and I found it endlessly fascinating.” — Laurie at Horror After Dark. Read More >>

“Like an episode of Six Feet Under mixed with Dexter … everything is so thorough and laid out so well that there isn’t one action or incident that feels irrational, and that speaks to the talent Sonora brings to the table. I truly loved this story.” — Steve Stred, author of Wagon Buddy and Invisible; for Kendall Reviews. Read More >>

“Sonora Taylor has written an unsettling, yet somewhat tender, story of coping with abuse and the hope of being able to truly love and be loved … The Beatles wrote ‘All You Need is Love’. They never read Without Condition.” — Suzy Michael, High Fever Books. Read More >>

“Cara put me in mind of a female vigilante/serial killer and I loooove books on this topic … Taylor has serious writing chops and her characters are so true to life and engaging.” — Tracy Robinson, LOHF. Read More >>

“I truly enjoyed this story. I think that Taylor really hit on something with this story. Even though Cara was a killer you felt for her. You felt for the child that she was … the woman that she was growing into. I really can’t wait to see what else Taylor has up her sleeve. If you haven’t gotten this in your brain you are missing out.” — Toni, The Misadventures of a Reader. Read More >>

The Crow’s Gift and Other Tales:

“Almost everything in ‘The Crow’s Gift’ — from story structure to tone to pacing, evokes the classic horror/suspense anthologies I grew up watching — Twilight Zone, Night Gallery, Tales From the Darkside … over just a few short tales, the author presents a variety of characters, perspectives, and narrative tones, none of which feels unnatural or out of place.” Read More >>

“The stories are classic, well-written Poe style horror with dashes of eroticism … The stories entice like a bunny hopping into a dark forest. We follow gleefully even though we are pretty sure something with sharp teeth lurks within.” Read More >>

“This collection features very imaginative stories and I thoroughly enjoyed reading them. Excellent writing, pacing, characters, twists, and chills!” Read More >>

“The author does a great job of taking seemingly innocuous situations and turning them on their head.” Read More >>

Please Give:

“The very frank voice of the main character and the everyday scenes make it really easy to relate to this story at many points throughout the book, which is a really welcome style. Everything from work life to dating are told very honestly and also with awesome humor.” Read More >>

“In Please Give … we are presented with a political tale of ideals and realities, of what happens when dreams and hopes are faced with the harsher side of reality. The characters here are fully realized, vivid and alive, directing the action with trackable motivation which the reader can believe. And, the hallmark of well drawn characters, they often do surprising things making them very human, which can be rare.” — Judge, 25th Annual Writer’s Digest Self-Published Book Awards

The book does a great job of conveying the unique anxiety that comes from working somewhere with an important mission! But I was just as enthralled by the relationships—both romantic and platonic—that this novel so vividly captures. As in life, none of the relationships in ‘Please Give’ are easy or always clear cut—sometimes love can grow from a ‘situationship,’ sometimes friends and roommates are just as important as family—which is what makes them so interesting.” Read More >>

Wither and Other Stories:

“Sonora Taylor has a knack for drawing you in, making you believe one thing, and then challenging that belief with a chilling truth.” Read More >>

Sonora Taylor writes elegantly and with a creepy tension that keeps you turning pages. You just know something is a little off with each story and you can’t wait to find out what it is.Read More >>
