On occasion I like to take a break from my beloved romance novels. I once considered reading a Stephen King book, but thought better of it at the last moment. I’m not a fan of horrors only because I’m a chicken (as I’ve admitted to many times before). With that said, on to my review.
Supernatural beings and the evils of humanity come alive in these six, grim tales with a twist.
This anthology took me into the darker areas of humanity and the paranormal world than I normally like to go. The stories were compact and yet all ended in a satisfactory (not happy – at least from the perspective of the teller) manner.
The stories are disturbing, but I couldn’t stop reading them because they’re so engaging. And they all have that moment when I said, “Oh, my goodness.”
Dark tales that may or may not give nightmares, but will leave you wondering about the disturbing actions of individuals (chills down my spine).
I give this book five out of five (athame, rope, flame thrower, olives, taxi, Strega wine bottle, big block of cement – I can’t choose) shaped chocolate bars.
I purchased my copy from Amazon.
