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.

Seriously Short

19 minutes is a seriously short amount of time to tell a whole story but I think Syon Das succeeds here! While I found the ending to be a bit predictable, it didn't detract from my enjoyment of "Family: A Short Horror Story." Paul Burt does a fantastic job of narrating this one. I would recommend this very short story to anyone who has less than 20 minutes for a quick dose of horror!

Creepy and Exciting

This short story was creepy and exciting. Though I went into it knowing it was a short story, I was left wanting more. I would have liked to see the story continue just a little further to give more understanding to the predator(s). The narration was perfect for the style of story.

Narration was excellent, voicing perfect for a suspense tale!

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.

A great short story for the halloween period

It was lovely to listen to this book at such a great time coinciding with the halloween period. It is a fun and easy read which is so bite size you can listen to it in one sitting very easily. The narrators voice adds to the suspense of the story . I love such tales from goosebumps and creeped out - so this story was right up my street so to speak . I was given this book by the author/narrator in return for an honest and unbiased review
