Legends say that on stormy nights, or on sunsets, there sometimes comes a strange whistling noise in the sky, followed by sightings of enormous black dogs. But these are no ordinary dogs. They are demonic things, hounds loose from the Wild Hunt, and they are searching for lost souls. Ill fortune will befall any who encounter them, one by one. They are rarely sighted more t ...more

The Seven Whistlers is the newest in the growing line of collaborations between Benson and Golden, but is not a part of their Ghosts of Albion series. The stand-alone novella follows Rose in the days following her grandfather's death as the small town she lives in is plagued by fearsome black dogs and grave bad luck.

I picked up this book from the new horror section for a change of pace at the downtown library. I wanted a fairly quick read, and it was skinny and with no book jacket - I was intrigued. Classic or pompous for a new book. Then I saw Amber Benson mentioned, and thought 'buffy!'. Not sure if it's the same one..

anyway, it was an easy story to get into. pretty straightforward characters, enjoyable clasic scarytale.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. I found it hard to put down as I needed to know what happened to the people in the town and the reason for the story. I loved that although it was a quick read a lot happened and the story was portrayed in such detail that it worked for 143 pages no more and no less.

Great story!
Enjoyed this book very much - couldn't put it down. Interesting characters and story plot. I'm a fan of Christopher Golden but was surprised by Amber Benson's (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)input.
A spooky little tale!
