Horror Stories to Ruin Christmas: Serenity Falls Forever Kindle Edition
The second day of Christmas was when people started to die.
By the thirteenth day of Christmas, it was too late to go back.
Or was it?
Twenty-six authors combined their talents to tell the horrifying story of Serenity Falls, Wisconsin. Piece by piece, the unsettling truth is revealed, culminating in a dark secret far bigger than any single writer’s imagination. Hope and despair are doled out in unequal measures as the town’s citizens struggle to discover the painful truth.
One day at a time.

A quick an enjoyable read, not too much detail to bog you down, but enough to show you each horrific picture the visuals the story creates stick with yu long after the final story. You just cannot be prepared for each story, and it keeps propelling you forward until the final conclusion.
Even through the horror, the very last story leaves you thinking, maybe I should be more aware of my surroundings.
Well done collaboration, each writer's style blends together seamlessly without you realizing they were written by different people, but enough different to keep you interested.
I would give it 10 stars if I could.
But - do not read while eating.
I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Anyway, about the story as a whole, I was there during its gradual development and my immediate impression was just how gritty and realistic it was. No ghosts or haunted animatronics or supernatural bull. A TON of crying children though! It just comes to show that human monsters can be more frightening than any eldritch thing.
What stood out to me more than anything was the two-pronged approach the authors took to this, which honestly had to be pretty tough. Not only did the Day stories need to gradually build upon one another while remaining distinct enough to make the puzzle of putting the pieces together that much more interesting, they ALSO had to be paired with a corresponding Night story that illuminated another perspective of the whole situation and led to its explosive conclusion. Some of these Night stories also went above and beyond, explaining what immediately followed their corresponding Day.
Who knew that something so delightfully monstrous could arise from a rage and madness borne out of a misplaced sense of justice or revenge? Without revealing too much, it was especially intriguing how seemingly-innocent characters turned out to have closet skeletons of their own, and how the web of conspiracy played out, making it a game of figuring out who caused what. It gets real "Game of Thrones" sometimes and reminds us that no town is truly safe from insanity.
On a more serious note, I also wish to commend the authors for their resolve and determination to keep going even in the face of loss and adversity. Kyle Alexander was meant to be one of us as well, as a follow-up to his work on Alphabet Stew, and his death affected us especially deeply and significantly impacted the already-troubled production of our second installment. Regardless, just as we continue to see our project to its end if only to continue to earn and honor his memory and his life's work, I salute the courage and determination the 26 authors behind the Serenity Falls saga bravely demonstrated throughout this season and beyond.
As the fourth-largest collaborative project of this nature on Reddit, the authors that were brought together truly outdid themselves, and delivered a Christmas present that no one saw coming. I highly recommend this series to anyone who enjoys creepypastas or the kinds of material seen on nosleep. Will it give you nightmares and make you queasy? Well what did you expect? Is it worth it, though?

DISCLAIMER: I am the founder and lead author of a series of my own on another subreddit. I've been helping out on nosleep with contributions to the Alphabet Stew and Skinner Foundation series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout for the purposes of reformatting, embellishing, and cross-linking the 26 Frights that plagued Serenity Falls for my personal entertainment. I leave this review of my own volition
Was lucky to get a review copy e-book of this one, but will be buying a physical copy as well. It's too good to pass up! If you want to see the best writing from the internet's best collection of horror writers, this is the book to start with!
Even though Christmas is months away, this book scared the hell out of me. I definitely recommend it to anyone looking for something to keep their mind fascinated and frightened in equal measures.

It's definitely a book that is hard to put down but why would you want to? Following 13 days of the citizens of Serenity Falls and their not so ordinary lives you almost feel as if you're a part of the community itself and are faced with awe as you read about the horrible things that happen in this small town. Every page you turn reveals another little secret or mystery and at the end when you realise how well the 26 stories from the different authors are so well woven together you can't help but wonder how they pulled this off. Would give more stars if I could.
