J.L Willow does it again! I highly recommend this short story collection to teens and adults who enjoy horror fiction. Fans of Stephen King, particularly his “Different Seasons” collection of novellas will enjoy this spooky and cleverly crafted book. Hope J.L. Willow writes another one soon. Five stars!

Scary but so good!

J.L. Willow has done it again. She's a talented writer who weaves a tale in a most unexpected way. I knew the stories would scare me, so I could only read during daylight hours. That was a wise choice to avoid nightmares!

This collection seems to me like the pioneer of a new type of book. Everything about it is so unique and captivating (formatting, trim size, cover, etc.) The stories are distinct yet similar enough to present a cohesive collection. AWS is the perfect balance; it's haunting in the moment but it won't give you any terrible nightmares, which I enjoy. I especially loved The Book Club, Children of Shadows, and A Weighted Soul. ...more

When I tell you I finished this book fast, I finished it in under 24 hours! I was so hooked on each story, and as each tale came across, it brought about more fear, uneasiness, and plot twists. I loved every moment of reading this book. I highly suggest reading this if you love a book that really makes you think!

J.L. Willow’s words will make you second guess every sight, smell, and sound when darkness falls. Brilliantly crafted works that scared me half to death, and truly a compelling piece.

I love this book.

Each story has their own twist that makes it dark and mysterious.

My favorite story is Children of Shadows.

10 out of 10 would recommend to anyone who likes horror and twisted tales (like the titles says).

This is the first book I've read by this author and I was very impressed. I love the way she spun her words of horror into wonderful tales which I had to devour in one sitting. I look forward to seeing more books from her. ...more

J. L. Willow voraciously read everything she could get her hands on as a child and continues to this day. She was inspired by the way words on a page could capture the imagination, beginning her journey as a writer at just six years old. When she’s not holding a pencil or a book, she can be found belting her favorite musicals or studying to become a mechanical engineer. Days off are spent relaxing ...more
