Another Good Collection by Blakey-Novis

Good collection of haunting short stories. I am really hard pressed to say which one was my favorite. Each one offered up something unique and I thought as a collection they were pretty solid. The nice thing is I didn't find them over the top gruesome just for the sake of gore. They were well thought out and excellently executed. David Sweeney-Bear did a great job with the narration. I loved his character's voices, the cadence he used, and the overall energy he put into each story. I am really enjoying that P.J. Blakey-Novis keeps using Sweeney-Bear as his narrator. I really thinks he brings these stories to life. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Another great collection

Definitely worth a listen. Although the stories are quick, none are that scary. They remind me more of good campfire quickies that will make you think and maybe disturb your sleep. I hate bugs and there's a few buggy ones, ewwwwww. My only critique is with the narrator. There were times I couldn't tell the difference between a male or female character. Other than that it was fine as an audiobook.

Great Short Stories!

I received a free copy of this audiobook from the author for an honest review. Here's another batch of pull-you-in-and-get-you-wowing-about-what-just-happened kinda stories. What can I say? This is a great author who knows how to write some creepy stuff! His stories are entertaining, attention holders, and you'll never want them to end. As I stated in my review for "Tunnels," the narrator did a great job! I'd definitely listen to him narrator again, especially anything written by Mr. Blakey-Novis.

Chilling

Loved all these stories almost as much as I did the ones in Tunnels. A few of these stories had predictable endings, but the rest were wicked and suspenseful. Dreamcatcher was my favorite piece on this audiobook, and the narration was just wonderful. Recommended for people looking for a chill down their spine.
