Book Description

What creatures go bump in the night? With an affinity toward horror and a knack for dreaming up scary monsters, the authors of this eBook want to take readers on several journeys through nightmarish beasts and devilish demons.

This collection of short horror stories is the first such collection from author, poet, and publisher Jennifer-Crystal Johnson and N. Jones, a contributing author.

Charles' Demons: a screenplay prequel to the second story, The Day the Demons Danced, featuring alien creatures who have come to our planet to steal the life essence of humanity and drive people mad.

The Huntress: In a beautiful neighborhood, entire families have abandoned their homes for fear of a creature who feeds on humans to maintain her youth.

Mirror Demon: Nothing is ever what it seems as daily normalcy mingles with nightmares when a baby is snatched from his mother by a demonic creature who wants to possess his mind.

5.0 out of 5 stars Creature horror that sent shivers down my spine! February 12, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
If You're Human, Don't Open the Door is a tasty little morsel indeed. It is packed with action, visceral horror, suspense, and heart-stopping moments, all in the space of four short stories. Seriously, these stories leave you begging for more. The writing style is clear, descriptive, and action-packed, with superb movement and pacing. There are modern 'internet savvy' references that give the work a young, hip, polished feel. If you're looking for some delicious tidbits to feed your soul, these short stories more than fit the order!

5.0 out of 5 stars Horror alert! January 26, 2013
By A.M.
Format:Kindle Edition
This was my first read by Jennifer-Crystal Johnson and I am happy to say I really enjoyed it. The book consists of short horror stories featuring monsters most people only see in nightmares. Around the creatures story lines develop with well-written characters and plots that kept me interested. If you love horror and creatures that invade your sleep then this book is for you. I look forward to reading more of her work

If You're Human Don't Open the Door is a collection of 4 stories of well crafted Terror and Horror.

Jennifer-Crystal Johnson (together with N.Jones) has written several chilling tales with a variety of female protagonists who have to quickly run the gamut from terror to horror to terror again. And Jennifer does it well. And, in keeping with the genre, things don't always work out for the hero. The tempo of each story is different as she takes us through;

Frozen moments of horror:

"I found that I, too, was frozen as I watched the creature seem to pulse and shake on top of him." -Emily The Day the Demons Danced

To moments of active Terror:

"I shut the door slowly and locked it. My knees grew weak and it was getting harder to breathe but I had to push onward. I felt faint. I looked to my left to see the washer and dryer there and rested a hand on the washer. My pulse began to increase. I had to move now before it was too late- too late. Wasn't it already too late?"-Emily The Day the Demons Danced

The final story is full of interesting imagery.

"I could feel millions of cuts on my body as I crashed through this curiously contradicting wall of the world, beautiful and painful, brilliance originating from a painful source, and an animal scream permeated the air and resonated throughout my bones, each laceration in my skin humming as if electrified."-Jennifer-Crystal Johnson Mirror Demon

In the short span that these stories allow, Jennifer finds a way to make the reader empathize with each of the main characters so that they find them selves mentally shouting don't open the door. In some cases the reader is taken on a sustained chain of thrill a minute gut wrenching terror. It's a good thing they were short stories.

On the other hand there were only four. I could have managed a few more. Maybe next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars VERY INTERESTING November 1, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Very captivating, too. I found myself engrossed and enthralled as I read this E-book. I think that Johnson's well-versed in how to scare people with her words. I found all the stories to be fast-paced and dowsed with dread. I completely and honestly recommend this read to all.
