Shelves: paranormal
I would like to start out by saying that I adore anthologies. Especially once that involve spooky tales. This one is chock full of great short stories. It was a very enjoyable book and I totally recommend it for lovers of horror, paranormal, mystery, gods and goddesses and short story collections.

I would like to thank the authors, Rewritten Realms, LLC and Netgalley for the opportunity to read a digital copy of Immortal Fears in exchange for a fair and honest review.

An engaging tale of how the gods came to the world of modern day after falling from prominence return to take power back. The halloween motif is suspenseful and leaves you wanting more.

Twenty-one authors. Twenty-one tales. One beast of a book!

The authors of the popular online magazine, In The Pantheon (inthepantheon.com), bring a unique spin on Halloween with a collection of seasonal tales as told by the Greek Gods who have returned to the mortal realm.

Ranging from terrifying, disturbing, and chilling to charming, quirky, and a wee bit spooky, this delightful anthology answers the question, "What do even the Gods fear?"

Like a bag full of Halloween candy, this goodie bag of tasty stories will delight you. Twenty-one authors tell twenty-one spooky tales - some dark, some lighter - from the POV of the Greek gods who have returned to the material realm.

If you enjoy paranormal, fantasy, myth, or horror this BIG book delivers immediate Samhain gratification in single sitting reads. Most stories are about 3k - 6k but include one novella sized adventure.

Love it.

*I received a copy of this novel for free in exchange for an honest review*

Immortal Fears comprises twenty short scary stories featuring the Greek Gods and Goddesses in the modern day. Each faces battles against monsters, demons, and perhaps the most terrifying of all themselves.

I thoroughly enjoyed reading this anthology collection. Each tale was terrifying and unique with its own twists and turns which made for compelling reading. I love stories showcasing the Greek Gods and Goddesses and Immo

Like Greek mythology? Want some seriously spooky reads? Look no further than Immortal Fears, an anthology of Halloween stories, published by Rewritten Realms, the publishing arm of the writing group In The Pantheon.
The anthology contains 21 stories, each by a different author. In each the writer takes on the voice of a character from Greek mythology, and reimagines what adventures they would have in the modern world.
Needless to say, it is highly entertaining. Especially for someone like me, wh

What an excellent read

Seriously. This had tricks and treats, scares and laughter. What an excellent introduction to the Greek gods in modern times!!!

The notion of gods in a modern setting is so refreshing. It has allowed the authors to really tap into the psychology of these mythological characters and push their boundaries and take them down new paths. Very well-written and conceived! Loved it!

I need more books with Greek gods. And ancient gods in general. I loved this anthology. The representation of the gods and Greek mythology itself was a bit too harmless for my taste. But I liked that each story represented the fear of a different god - it was also interesting to see each author's take on what a god could possibly fear.
All stories were so beautifully written, I don't know how to pick a favorite.

I received a free ARC by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.

It is often difficult to review collections of short stories as it is impossible to focus on all of them - especially when there are 21, and not all of them good. It is an interesting concept throughout the book, tying each story to a Greek deity in a contemporary setting,

For myself, none of the stories felt like there had been a concept or a strong sense of the plot, as though they had simply been written to be a part of the collection and with little thought to be given other than this. As a r

The book "Immortal Fears" is a collection of short stories written by 21 authors. Each of the authors slips into the role of a Greek deity. The stories are thematically about fear, Halloween/Samhain and horror.
In general, the problem with a short story collection is that not all stories will resonate with you. For the most part, the quality of the stories were good to very good. One can especially emphasize that characters who also appear in other stories felt the same. Here the respective write
