    One thought on “Five Down”

    1. There are five short stories included in this book. Four have already been released and one is a new. The four older ones are: Rick The Brave, Home, Close to You and Keeping It Close. The new one is Playing With Fire and that's the one I will be reviewing here. (The others I have previously reviewed)I just have to say that I love this series and it's been a while since a story has come out so I was thrilled to get anything, anything, especially one that has Terrible in it. After Chess' "falling [...]

    2. 3.5 stars - SpoilersAll decent short stories with plenty of Chess/Terrible goodness. Already read and enjoyed the first four stories (Rick the Brave, Home, Close to You, and Keeping it Close) when they first came out. The new short story, Playing with Fire, was good too, it was a little predictable in parts though. It was pretty much the usual investigation-of-the-week type plot with Chess investigating several fiery deaths. I did like being introduced to more characters related to Chess's work, [...]

    3. 2.5 starsCLOSE TO YOU and PLAYING WITH FIRE - 3 stars. CLOSE TO YOU - for nicely done post-apocalyptic atmosphere and rather creepy story. PLAYING WITH FIRE - for being a bit more investigation, mystery solving focused rather than romantic. It has a an open ending but a good start taking you straight into action.The others more in the 2* zone. RICK THE BRAVE - is OK but not very gripping.HOME and KEEPING IT CLOSE - are too focused on romance for my liking. Sex scenes are well done but mc persona [...]

    4. I read this as part of Home Improvement: Undead EditionI miss Terrible and Chess! Please Stacia Kane, write another book in their series!!! This is a short story about a home improvement project that goes bad. 5 stars.

    5. I've read 4 of the 5 of these stories before, but do you think that stopped me from reading them again? Hell no. They are wonderful the 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and I am sure millionth time through. The new story I am sure is setting up a 6th book *fingers crossed* as we get some new characters and the mystery is only partially solved. It was great being back in Downside, as horrible and scary as it can be, I always feel safe with Chess and Terrible by my side. Being with them is like coming home after a [...]

    6. Rick is an electrician looking for extra work. Unfamiliar with Downside, he reluctantly takes a job there just because the pay is really good. He'll be working for Bump, supervised by Terrible. Just as he gets started, ghosts appear and Chess is called to save the day. This is a cute short. I love this series!

    7. 4,5 starsNice to have all short stories in one book. :D5)"Playing With Fire" - I started with this one because it's a new story.First of all, it's expected you read books #4 and #5 since there are some things mentioned that can be spoilery for major events of those books.Chess stumbled on another case: women all over town are spontaneously combusting to death and she knows some bad magic is involved. But it's not the Church case- the case belongs to Squad, so she doesn't really have an authority [...]

    8. Not reading this in order. Close To You: I should immediately confess the Stacia Kane Downside series is not a must read for me. Honestly I'm not a big fan of Chessiebomb's whining or her love interest Terrible. However, the world is so unique & incrediably vivid I eventually come back to the series usually as an in-between read. That said "Close To You" was the reason Meigan lent me this anthology. After reading it I can see why Meigan went out of her way to figure out how to lend it to me [...]

    9. If you're a fan of Chess, especially her man Terrible, you will love this collection of short stories. Stacia's writing is so rich and engaging. Chess is still neurotic and addicted to her cepts (which doesn't seem as much as before. Perhaps falling in love has lessened her need for artificial stimulants since she has Terrible in her life?) but she's trying her best to stay on the straight and narrow.Fans of this series won't be disappointed at all. Chess and Terrible are terrific together. They [...]

    10. No sé que más puedo agregar que ya no haya dicho antes Así que me voy a limitar a reaccionar: (view spoiler)[He aquí un breve resumen de mi historia personal con TERRIBLE (hide spoiler)]["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>

    11. Rick The Brave (Downside Ghosts 3.5) - 3 StarsI read Rick The Brave as part of the Five Down e-book rather than the anthology where it was first published. This story was very different from those that proceeded it, because Rick is a brand new character, and someone who the reader will probably never see again. It gives the reader a chance to experience things from the outside of the little circle the stories have been set in, and gives some perspective on Chess and Terrible from an outside obse [...]

    12. Great collection of shorts from the Downside world. While many fans of the series may see a few repeats as four of the stories were previously published, there is a brand new story added to the collection with the last story, Playing With Fire. Only two stories were new to me, Rick the Brave and Playing With Fire.Rick the Brave - 5 starsRick, an electrician, is recruited to help with a derelict house in Downside that is going to be restored by Bump and his crew. Downside isn't anyone's first cho [...]

    13. FINALLY some new Downside material!!!! Somehow there were 3 out of the 5 I hadn't read before. Downside is one of the few series that I'll read the novellas. So quick recap on the 3 that I read:Rick the Brave:I think this might of been my favorite of the 3. I enjoyed seeing Chess & Terrible through someone else's eyes. Especially since Rick thought that Chess was so efficient and something else. It was a nice change of pace vs the self hate and self doubt that Chess puts herself through. Als [...]

    14. Loved, loved, loved "Playing with Fire." This little gem of a novella was loaded with all of the things that has made the Downside series so successful such a Chess &Terrible, magical mayhem, suspense, intrigue, action and the overwhelming sense that Chess' secret life will be discovered at any inopportune moment.This novella provides us with more insight and progress with Chess' relationship with Elder Griffin, Blue as well as Lex. There is a foreboding feeling that trouble is lurking right [...]

    15. Available on author's websiteContains five stories:RICK THE BRAVE (from the HOME IMPROVEMENT: UNDEAD EDITION anthology)HOME (a Heroes & Heartbreakers original)CLOSE TO YOU (a Heroes & Heartbreakers original)KEEPING IT CLOSE (web original)…aaaaaand a brand new novella (33k words) called PLAYING WITH FIRE, which has spontaneous combustion and divided loyalties and a confrontation and big decisions and a character or two who I’m pretty sure will be back again in later books. Previously [...]

    16. Five fabulous Terrible stars. Loved this collection. All of which I have read before seperatley, except the last novella. All of which I adored, simply because of Terrible and Chess.

    17. I loved all of the stories in this anthology. This really, really, really makes me want a new Downside book and now.

    18. I missed Chess and Terrible and loved reading these 5 short stories about them. Some I had read previously, but it was good to read them again!

    19. I read this as part of the anthology The Mammoth Book of Vampire Romance 2: Love BitesI love this author - I did not love this story though. Was this a try at vampire romance set in old England? For an average author this would be okay but Stacia Kane can do a whole lot better. 2 stars.

    20. just read 5 down and it made me reread the series. I adore Chess and Terrible but when I reread I realized I am fond of Lex and I think he loves Chess as much as he's capable of. Can't WAIT for the next book !

    21. I adored seeing Chess and Terrible when they had still been hiding their true feelings from each other but had started really dating. It's so adorable.

    22. This was probably my favorite of the five stories in Five Down because I just love that Chess and Terrible are finally so happy. Without many lucrative cases of her own since the fallout with Elder Griffith, Chess starts investigating the mysterious death of a woman she and Blue witnessed. Since she hasn't been assigned the case she doesn't get all of the information but she does pretty well with what she has. Will is the Inquistitor who is assigned to the case, and he's someone she went to the [...]

    23. Rick the Brave is book #3.5 in the Downside Ghosts series and was originally printed in the anthology Home Improvement: Undead Edition. Sadly, I didn't get a chance to read it until Stacia Kane released her collection of novella's Five Down. Rick is a down on his luck guy looking for electrical work. He ends up in an abandoned building in Downside, which is over seen by a hulking brute of a guy, AKA Terrible. Almost immediately into his work, the building turns out to be haunted. Not exactly wha [...]

    24. "Rick the Brave" is a story about a guy who is down on his luck and comes to the Downside to do a construction job. Rick is smart enough to know that this job is chocked full of danger otherwise his brother-in-law would have taken it rather than pass it on to him;but, he needs the job and the money to help pay off the car note that he is saddled with because of his no count ex-girlfriend. Unfortunately, little did he know that he would be fighting off a hoard of ghosts with a cute little woman n [...]
