Ok, so first off I have to say that THIS ANTHOLOGY IS AMAZING. I have only read two or three anthologies ever and this is making me kick myself in the a** for that. Each story is so good that I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what happens next. 24 dark stories that all have a paranormal aspect to them, from faeries to ghosts to vampires to shifters. I give the anthology as a whole a 4.5 out of 5. Now for my individual assessments.

It never fails that when I see Alexia Purdy’s name attached to a book, I instantly want to read it. She never disappoints me. This has many different horror stories that have the endings of things not going so well for the main characters in this book. I wouldn’t suggest reading this before bedtime if you are known for having nightmares after a scary read because this might induce them. It was nice to see so many authors get together and write these stories.

I love to read but i am not able to read as much as i would like to because of my very busy life. This book gives you so many shorts to read, just the thing of you are like me and dont have the time for a long novel. This is so much book for the money!

It's always difficult to know the best way to review anthologies, do you review the individual stories or the book as a whole or even both? Well here's my version, first the anthology as a whole, I really enjoyed and would definitely recommend. the anthology is a great way to try authors you may not have read before. There were a few of the stories I didn't like that I thought leant too much towards a horror theme for my personal liking. I did however, enjoy well over half of the storie
Jenna Pridgen
Awesome Awesome Awesome. A great group of authors with their own unique storytelling greatness. I can honestly say I enjoyed every story in this anthology. Recommend to anyone who likes short, paranormal stories.

Hi y'all Anne here with my Huge review for this absolutely amazing anthology from Crushing Hearts & Black Butterfly Publishing, here we go!!! First of all let's start with the book as a whole, it's great, fabulous, and dark all in between 2 cover pages! The stories start with a bang and end with a mind bending boom... SJ Davis has really out done herself with this opening anthology for her company. I congratulate her for her endurance and stamina in this monster of a book. She hand chose sto ...more

This collection sounds cool but I can't help but wish the paperback edition had this more striking Pan's Labyrinth-ish cover!

So far I've read Flaming vengeance and his first snow by Linna drehmel. I enjoyed both of these stories and would read more if they were expanded upon. Good story lines and quick paced so you don't get bored. This author is going somewhere great. The Darkon story is my favorite one so far. Check it out!
I've been reading these short stories on and off, but its a great anthology!
Rebecca Nolan
Wow, I really, really enjoyed this anthology.
Dark Light is a launch anthology, the first publication of a new, independent publisher and it shows through at times. The stories are of varying genre, style and also, unfortunately quality. A total of 23 short stories (in my version, that it, there appear to be two and I'm not entirely clear on what the differences are, but some shuffling of content has taken place) some well put together, well flowing and very polished, others overdone and at times awkwardly phrased.
The collection as a whole,
Wanda Hartzenberg
I honestly never understood why authors co-write an anthology. I was unsure as to what the end goal was! I am no longer unsure. This anthology, filled with paranormal stories to sate each and every paranormal genre lover thirst brings the best of the best to the reader. The stories are, at times quite lengthy, at times short and sweet, but they are plentiful and whatever this book costs, it is worth it.
Every reader will find multiple new authors they fall in love with. Several that will enchant

Disappointing. There were some worthwhile stories but as a collection I have to say no.
