This review is for the Yellowest Orange:
'If you ever wish to stray from the conventional drama that the majority of stories have to offer, instead of immersing yourself in real life horrors and disturbing thoughts of plausible monsters, then turn to S.Foxe to unnerve you. She digs into the human design and unearths the potential evils within us. Then she presents it to you in ways you cannot help but understand. Hers is a brand of horror that takes you closer to the truth than we rarely ever are.
The Yellowest Orange focuses on a mother who is forced into a life of crime, but she endures the pain and suffering for the sake of her children. The story allows you to realize for yourself the tragedies that befalls her family, and the effect is reeling once you see all they go through. Nothing is force fed; once you realize what you're eating, you feel sick, and that is what makes this piece of writing so powerful, so worth the read.
If ghosts and demons have failed to scare you in the past, S.Foxe's monsters will, and will continue to haunt you long after you've finished the story.'

'S. Foxe writes with a clear, unique, and gripping voice.
Find yourself dragged along on a fast-paced journey into a dirty and real-world from which there is little hope of escape from those that care to even try. Not a word wasted. Yellowest Orange packs a heavyweight blow to knock your own complacent stuffing out.'

'This story left me sad and somber
I planned to review this earlier but I had to let the story settle in my head first.
This is far more literary than my usual read, but it was haunting and evocative and sad and written with a detached view of the brutality taking place. I'm used to escapist fiction but this felt very real, and very tragic.'
'Get on the Roller coaster
Having read other stories from other authors I must they are storyteller and then they're a storyteller.
This short story grabs from the first paragraph and has you on a white knuckle roller-coaster ride culminating in a devastating climax you didn't see coming it will leave you wanting more.
10 stars 10/10 M Henningham you ROCK
Can't wait for the next one.'

Another great contribution from S Foxe. Had intended to have a quick skim through but couldn't put it down once I started. S Foxe has a rare gift of injecting humour into what would otherwise be a dark thriller.'
' Five Stars
Real Situations. Hard choices and nowhere to hide. The story is engrossing, sad, scary and definitely not a typical read. If you like to read about testing situations and the result of them, I would then recommend you read this.'

'Soulless is a fast-paced, gritty short story that will leave you feeling dirty. Forget 'the Red Room' - Mani's world is much more convincing, real , and ultimately painful. A concise and well written short story by S.Foxe.'

Gritty and Great, 1 November 2012
By Geoffrey West
'An extraordinarily hard-hitting read, packed with menace and earthy emotion. You are instantly on the heroine's wavelength, feeling her fear, sensing her dread and knowing her pain until the final shocking denouement. A writer who definitely packs a sexy, dangerous punch. Don't read it late at night, and definitely don't read it when you're alone.'

'Well handled story of a delicate subject matter
This my second book read by this writer the previous being Muddy Love which very funny. SOULLESS is not funny, although it starts with humor. it's a short story about abuse and cowardly men. From the opening line Ms. Henningham makes you like the principal character with humor as she tries to get through a pomegranate while waiting for Gator to arrive with dinner. However, things soon get very serious and the humor soon turns to fear. I was with Mani all the way as the story unfolds to reveal a night of terror. Beautifully written with a sense of realism. Delicately handled and yes a lovely twist in the end...'
'With her trademark vivid descriptions and brilliant use of similes M
With her trademark vivid descriptions and brilliant use of similes M. Henningham quickly sets the scene, initially sprinkling some humour to alleviate tension. As the story unfolds, things start to get seriously worrying and it’s not just due to a pomegranate being squashed into the carpet. Before long we witness Kane and Mani’s broken relationship with its ensuing spite. While reading you feel as if you’re in Mani’s skin and can't help shuddering, but then out of agonizing brutality comes some sort of dreadful glimmer of hope. Although it’s a satisfying ending, you’re left wondering what happens next and wish you could read more of this.'
Gripping and Vivid!
I read it all in one quick go; it was that engaging. I love the author's power of description which gave even mundane things like eating a pomegranate and breaking a nail some importance. I empathised with Mani. It was easy to loathe Kane. Well done, Ms. Henningham!
I won't give away any more. This is certainly worth a read!'
Wow! This writer had me gripped from start to finish! Fast-paced action with a twist all in a neatly packaged short story! I would like to read a full novel by this Lady, very well written indeed!'
'This was a quick read and I absolutely loved it. Gripping from beginning to end
I don't usually read short stories but this has reminded me of how satisfying it can be to read a story in one sitting but still reap all the pleasure of fiction. Hope to read more work of this writer.'
'Gripping and raw
I wouldn't describe this as 'entertaining', but it is powerful and compelling. I had to push through to the end to see what happened.'
