This is the second collection of short stories that I've read by Jason Nugent.

This collection of short stories has more than a few 'Moments of Darkness'. There is plenty of twists and turns to keep your heart racing. All of the stories are wonderfully creative and well recommended.

Shelves: anthologies, warped

A dark collection of tales perfect for Halloween coming soon. Perfect for any age be it young or old. We have a zombie talking to a girl, and a loving husband trying to get revenge on a murdering neighbour. Each story in this book takes you on a different adventure. I really loved having this chance to read this and will continue to many more time's.
