Do you dare to face the darkness?
Explore the dark world that exists just outside what you can see and thrives on the most terrible things you can imagine. Explore the unfathomable depths of darkness with four distinctly horrifying stories that delve the depths of madness and fear. Nighttime is when the darkness that is within each and every one of us escapes and envelops us in the perilous and inscrutable blackness.
Who can say for sure what lurks on the periphery of our consciousness? When seen again in the light of day, ordinary objects and ordinary parts of our lives are nothing more than what we know them to be. But come nightfall, who knows?
Follow a dreamer who takes flight and explores fantastic worlds in the dark. Like Icarus, he soars to uncharted heights without realizing the danger hidden in his own dreams.
Learn the secrets of a dark and deviant street vendor. In the light of day, he wouldn't merit a second glance but everything is different at night.
Uncover the mystery of a deadly and terrible childhood secret that still haunts a broken man. Perhaps he could have solace if the circumstances surrounding the death of his sister were somehow explainable.
See the terrible power of a buried ancient and bloody curse. Once uncovered, it is free to exact a terrible revenge.
All of this and more is trapped in this book of horror. Do you dare to face the darkness?
My rating: 3.5 stars
Audiobook narrator J. Scott Bennett rating: 4.5 stars
This is the follow up book to Slivers in the Dark. It is another collection of four short horror stories. These stories are varying in their disturbing-ness yet they are short and fun.
The stories in this book may have been a little more interesting than the ones in the first book. I really enjoyed the second story about the New York hot dog vendor. It was written so realistically that I could really see this actually happening (well, maybe not but maybe in a short film/horror world!).
I like how all of these stories end – meaning they end but don’t end (you’ll have to read the stories to understand what I am talking about).
Again, I really enjoyed the narrator. He has a great story telling voice and sets the tone correctly for this genre. Thanks for the free book, Scott!
