Publisher's Summary

Joshua and Daniel Duncan love Halloween. The unhealthy snacks, gory horror films, and corny decorations warm their teenage hearts like no other holiday ever could. However, on this Halloween night, someone special is at their front door. Someone they've known their whole lives. There's always room for family.

Don't Answer The Door Halloween Night

This was a good creepy story. Perfect listen during the month of October when nightmares are a little more real. While I wish it was a bit longer to build more suspense, I think the author did the story right by keeping it short and not putting in a lot of filler. I really enjoyed the writing itself and look forward to a full novel by Syon. Paul Burt did a great job with the narration. He has a very distinct voice and I loved his character voices, especially Aunt Katie. Burt really added to the overall creepiness of the story.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Short and Sweet

**This audiobook was provided to me for free, in exchange for my honest review**

Syon definitely has a knack for writing creepy stories. I found this one to be quite interesting and well written to keep me engaged.

Paul Burts style for this novel was pretty good. It felt a bit rushed, I wished some aspects were paced a bit better to allow the listener to really sink in what horrors are awaiting, but that's a minor knit pick.

Would gladly recommend this audiobook.

Dark and Nutty with Room for Blood

Great character descriptions and dialog in this short, creepy story. The narrator brings out the dark mood of the story while also bringing several different character types to life. I really enjoyed cuddling in and listening to this tale.

Wish there was more...

This Short story was given to me at my request and I am providing a voluntary review:

This was a well written and entertaining horror story. The narration was excellent. My only complaint is that I wish there was more! 19 Minutes is really quick. But still, a good story.

Family Horror

This is the perfect Halloween short story that will give you chills! Joshua and Daniel Duncan love everything about Halloween: the candy, the decorations and the gory movies. However, when family becomes the horror, how will it end?

The author does a great job with building up the tension/terror and the narrator does a perfect job in conveying the scares. I was given the chance to listen to this audiobook by the author/narrator and chose to review it.

Wonderfully wicked short

Family is a wicked short story that will !make you think twice about opening the door for family. This short had me on pins and needles until the very end. Syon Das is definitely an author worth keeping an eye on. Paul Burt narration absolutely brought out the creepiness of the characters. I loved all the horror and gore. Do not miss this short I promise you will love it. I received this review copy at my request and it was absolutely sensational. I am voluntarily leaving an honest review.
