Amy Cross is a crazy prolific author who’s written about 8 million books. She’s compared a lot to Darcy Coates, another prolific female horror author, but Amy’s books tend to be edgier and more macabre. The short stories in this collection were some of her tamer ones, and none of them reached the level of some of her scarier stories like Stephen. 3 stars.

Excellent short dark reads.

A collection of well-crafted and varied short stories, ‘Dark Little Wonders’ definitely lives up to its title. The stories are all quite different, invariably dark, and full of twists and surprises. Taken one by one, each story challenges the reader to see life - and death - from a different perspective. In combination, this collection of dark fiction reminds the reader that one can be haunted by many more things than just ghosts.


The writing is good and the characters

British or American which is it?

The stories aren’t too bad, if you like this sort of thing. Before writing this, I read two of them but it’s enough to formulate an opinion. Now, the author is not British that much is obvious so, why write stories set in England when she’s using phrases we Brits would not use such as gas stationand the word goddamned, we just don’t talk that way and so i’d saay one thing. If you want to improve this book, do your research or set your stories in locations you know

Absolutely wonderful Storytelling!

Amy Cross is a fabulous storyteller! Every story was entertaining and original! From a murder covered up by the 911 tragedy, a haunted old book with a nasty caretaker to a haunted lost love with a twist, these stories come to vivid life through the mind of Any Cross! This was my introduction to this author i am a major fan! Dark, chilling and amazing!!

A very good read!

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this selection of short stories by Amy Cross. They were intelligent and satisfying, not horror as such, but creepy and macabre to be sure. The quality of Amy Cross' writing tends to fluctuate widely but this selection of stories was very good indeed.

Another enjoyable collection of short stories. I definitely like her short stories over her series. My only thing was the last story. It did t really go anywhere and seemed more like an introduction (where I think it would’ve been better placed) than a kind of wrap up.

How does she write so much and so well? Good book of short stories. Some things didn’t ring true. Notes of 9/11..I was there in New York City. The 15 year old in the one story that knows Latin? At 15? Otherwise the character development was always solid. Real page turning stuff

Entertaining

Very entertaining stories that are probably going to be in this book. Cat food and water is going well with your family and friends are probably going to be in my head. The last story brings the book together so be sure to read it.

One of the best reads this year

A great anthology that roped me in from the get go. The tales are diverse and twisted. A great thriller with class and finesse. I couldn't wait to finish the book, but am sad that the adventure had come to an end.

Amazing

Not what I expected from Amy Cross, but the short stories were still intriguing. The last story brought all of them together.

Dark Corners & Creepy Tales!!

Creepy stories that should be read late at night. Each one of these stories has a unique kind of twist on horror.
