Six creepy, spine-tingling stories from the Mistress of the Macabre, Rayne Hall. Volume 1 contains 'Only A Fool', 'Four Bony Hands', 'The Black Boar', Druid Stones' and 'Burning'.

Pretty Decent!

Six short horror stories that are original, and one of them is historical. The last story-Burning- is my favorite.

This is a new author for me and I like what I have read so far, so I will be reading something else.

As the title says, this is a set of six scary stories - and I received the set of three volumes for free in exchange for an HONEST review.

Only a Fool - Definitely an unexpected twist in this one.

Four Bony Hands - My thoughts on finishing the story: What awful kids!! Definitely not the ending I expected.

Druid Stones - Pretty good, creepy.

The Black Boar - Good story, but the ending fell short.

Double Rainbows - I liked the anticipation and fear in this one.

Burning - Wow

I have been so disappointed l

I received this book in exchange for my honest review. As I have just recently finished Thirty Scary Tales by Rayne Hall, I already was well acquainted with these short stories in this collection, so they are fresh in my mind.

I had two favorites, "Double Rainbows" and "The Black Boar". One of them was a hearty helping of getting what's coming to 'im, while the other is about being careful what you wish for.There is another story in this collection called "Burning" that was especially hard to rea

I recommend this to anybody who is a true fan of horror, scary, terror stories and movies.
These are actually scary tales, and you will read these over and over again!
The author does an excellent job describing the horror that is taking place, and these are definitely some pretty original ideas!
I am going to be reading more from Rayne Hall, and from what I have found so far, her books are highly recommended.
I loved the story, Four Bony Hands, I think the best, but they were all very good, prett

I don't quite remember 'Four Bony Hands' but I do remember I read all six when I read Rayne Hall's "Thirty Scary Tales" in October 2013.
Burning was just one of the most beautiful and sad pieces I have ever read.
