Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for a copy in exchange for a fair and honest review.

I read probably 90% of the short stories, skipping around. I didn't want to read more after the first story, but I don't like reviewing based on only one, so I began again with Double Dog Dare as recommended by another reviewer. Unfortunately, the remaining stories didn't pull up the value for me.

The premise is interesting, and each story I read usually had something interesting as its basis. For example,

I really wish I could give this book zero stars because there was absolutely NOTHING good I could say about that book. I love a good horror story. I love anthologies. Horror anthologies are awesome. Usually. This one was... Exhausting. The only scary thing about this book was the grammatical and logical errors in every single story and the absolutely annoying italic written comments in bracets. They did little to the story and at some point, they were downright ridiculous.
The story were not sca

I do love a good spooky short story book and although I loved the stories in this collection and really enjoyed them, there were a few loose ends that need to be sorted out. For one, I found that the stories were heavily focused on sex and sexual content, which the spooky stories really didnt need to build atmosphere or thrill. I didnt understand why it was added except that it is a book meant for an adult audience.

I also noticed alot of spelling and grammar mistakes in every short story. Altho

Thanks to Netgalley and the author for an ARC of this book. Wow. This was a really great collection of tales of folklore. I enjoyed them because most involved myths or legends I had never heard before. The author tells a story that will creepy you out and is very much believable. The first one, being my favorite. I hope to read so much more by this author. Have recommended this book to all my horror loving friends in my Facebook groups, Insta, and Twitter.

This is a collection of short stories and it is perfect if you just want a quick read.

On Halloween, I was just going to read one or two of the stories that day and read the rest the next day but I ended up reading the entire book because I was so into the short stories.

Each short stories are different and very much entertaining. I have never read anything like these short stories before.

I do highly recommend

I am giving this 5 out of 5,

This is a fantastic, boxed set with an abundance of very unique tales that each immediately drew me in. Weird, quirky and eerie – all in the best of ways.


*I received a complimentary ARC of this book in order to read and provide a voluntary, unbiased and honest review, should I choose to do so.

Wonderful story writing; fresh, crisply written, wry and sardonic where needed. He's able to invoke the feeling of mythology and mystery in every page. Seems to have lots of credible historical events rooted in most stories. Highly recommended ...more

This book is well written and has good character development I just couldn’t personally get into the story and found it a little bit of a struggle to keep reading. It’s a book of short stories that is almost akin to a scary stories to tell in the dark but a lot more graphic and grusome. Either way it just left a little lacking for me personally. I received an advance review copy for free, and I am leaving this review voluntarily.
