As always seems to happen with such works, there was quite a wide variety in styles and talents among the various authors. Some were much darker than others; and a couple were a bit too sinister for me. Various stories were somewhat believable, while others were way far out there. A few had definite outcomes to the storyline, while others ended on a cliff-hanger.
“The Ghost” by Jessica Gunn was definitely my favorite of the tales. This may have had a lot to do though with the fact that it was placed within her Hunter Circles world, from which I have read other stories. But the characters were all knew and quite intriguing, especially Lincoln, and I’m hopeful that they may make an appearance in future stories.
“Story of the Unknown Solder” by Daphne René was sweet and interesting. It had moments of definite intrigue, mystery and tension, but nothing too scary.
“The Transgressions of Faith Eileen” by Melanie McFarlane was also a story that I quite enjoyed, but I was very disappointed in the ending as it was one of those cliff-hangers that I mentioned earlier. This is one, however, that I might be willing to follow-up for some resolution.
Overall, I’d say it was a fun read, especially if you are into things a bit on the darker side.
If you like creepy stories and if you like short stories, you will be more than thrilled to combine the two in this great collection of twisted tales! Some hooked me more than others but I absolutely loved the collection! Each author has a unique voice and a different story to tell! Well worth the read!
All but 1 of these stories are complete. The one that is not is one of the best stories in the whole book. Now I have to find the rest of it (hopefully it's not just another part) in another book. Not cool to tease.
I was given an arc of this book and this is my honest review.
