Review:


This is a collection of short horror stories and overall I liked the book as a whole.

The author gives an introduction before the start of the stories; I would recommend reading it as it gives a lot more info than the description above.

The first stories were my favorites; they were very well crafted, filled with mystery, suspense and horror. I read the book really late at night and the first stories scared the crap out of me, however
it was the last story that I did not really like.

To me the last story, a novella centered around Jack the Ripper, did not really fit the collection and it was not scary at all—made me wince at times but not scary. Basically we just have the man ‘Jack’ running around killing people and the police looking for him. It was okay overall but I have to admit I struggled to finish that one.

Overall I liked the collection. I have only in the last year or so started reading horror so it is always a treat a story to scary me and make me doubt the odd common noses in my house.

3 Moons!

*I received a hardcover/paperback/eBook copy/ARC of this book for free to review from the author/publisher/tour site; this in no way influenced my review, all opinions are 100% honest and my own.
