I received this book from AudioBookBoom in exchange for an honest review.

DNF @ 30%.

Disappointed with this one. There's not much "hardcore horror" here except the stomach-turning horror of what one person can do to another. Several of the stories felt incomplete and left me hanging for a conclusion or punchline, something.

Not the best of the series so far. The narration for the audio wasn't for me and detracted from my enjoyment so much so that I had to switch to the ebook to finish it up. Unfortunately, it didn't get much better after that. Not that all of the stories were bad (because they weren't) but as a collection they seemed uneven and disjointed. Even my favorite stories seemed a wee tame for a collection of hardcore horror.

I really didn't enjoy this, which is a shame as I love horror and I love short stories.
I abandoned listening to this about 1/3 through. I did not enjoy the narrator at all and that may have been part of the problem I had with this book, his voice was a little nasally and it was really starting to grind on me. The stories that I did listen to were alright, but certainly nothing that I would class as 'hardcore horror', more 'mild'.
Sorry, I tried but this wasn't for me.

A terrific collection. The editors have curated a heady mix that provokes shock, revulsion, surprise and dread. (Please note: I have a story in this one, which I'm leaving out of my review.) The stories vary in subject, style and approach so there is something to suit every horror fan. Recommended.

I recieved a free copy of this in exchange for an honest review.

None of the stories present here are entirely skippable. Each have a unique take on a Horror Story that is entirely viable and each of the author's pulls off perfectly fine. The only issue that I have with the Anthology is that it is marketed as the best hardcore horror that I feel most of these stories do not begin to touch what is hardcore. Again, the stories are perfectly fine but anyone looking for a stream or splatt

I’ve become a fan of many talented authors through this series
This felt less gory and more story driven then the previous three books witch should attract a larger horror crowd
The narrator was good but the odd background noise could be distracting
If your looking to get into more hardcore horror I highly recommend this series as a whole
