I love this book, its well written with creative and descriptive tales and the artwork is amazing and really brings the characters to life. This is a book that simply oozes darkness and brooding and terror and torment, a must for those who prefer a more sinister read
I ran across this book in Hot Topic years ago, and just recently ran by it again. As far as horror short story anthologies go, this is definitely at the top of my list. The stories are dark, creepy, and beautiful, and absolutely steeped in atmosphere. The illustrations included are gorgeous. Overall it's not just the stories that are high-quality, but the book itself. For anyone who likes horror, I really recommend this one.
Another book I couldn't put down. I have been a fan of Nox Arcana's music since I was 15, which in itself tells of dark tales, and inspires a more gothic creativity. I couldn't pass up buying their first book. Combined with listening to another group I'm also a fan of, Midnight Syndicate's "Born of the Night" cd, draws you deep into the dark realm of these ghastly tales.
