I thoroughly enjoyed all the stories in this book except for one which didn't quite hold my willing suspension. However, even that story I'd rank a 3 star out of 5.
Amazon recommended this book to me because I am a huge fan of horror and suspense books, and also a huge Halloween fanatic. Also I do love short stories and anthologies sampling new authors, so I couldn't pass this recommendation up.
However, it should be noted I usually find anthologies with only 10-15% of the stories whetting my appetite. I read about 50 books a year and I'm usually disappointed with more than half of them!
This book really satisfied my appetite for all of my qualifiers for what I feel should be in a good story, with nearly 100% satisfaction for the entire book! That's not an easy goal to meet for me especially in an anthology!
I will leave prospective buyers with one recommendation, and I suspect it's why this book might not get very many sales or downloads. The introduction is very long and very dry. I ended up skipping it altogether.
I don't think it was necessary to go into a short description of each story before the book started and in fact I was worried it was going to create story spoilers, hence my reason for skipping it. I really think this would have been better placed at the end.
I was feeling jaded that this long winded intro was probably indication that the book also would be a boring read. How very wrong I was!
If you buy this book, read the intro after the main bulk of the book.
If the sample of this book only gives you, (the prospective reader,) the intro, you'll just have to take my word for it that the book is a completely worthy read and you won't be disappointed at all!
