You’ll never look at your horoscope the same way again

To most of us a horoscope is a gag we read about online or in the newspaper. Today is your lucky day, you’ll meet a tall dark stranger, beware the color orange. For some it’s a guide to their lives. Here in this collection PW Hillard takes the horoscope to a level more along the lines of how to die. These 12 chilling tales are each proceeded by a simple reading of a horoscope that he twists and turns into a hellish tale of death and destruction for those of that sign. Get ready for a wild set of 12 tales, pay close attention to the horoscope and watch as its twisted into the horrorscope that the collection is named as. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher

Gives a sinister edge to daily horoscopes

This is a pretty good collection of stories, joined together by tying into a zodiac sign. I like how each tale started with one of those hilariously generic horoscopes and then tied it in to the tale. Some of the stories had pretty grisly endings, so caution there for anyone a bit squeamish. I didn't find it too bad personally, and felt it sort of helped convey just how raw and brutal some of the situations were. On the writing, there were some odd sentences here and there, but seldom enough that it was distracting. One that I can remember offhand went something like "His clothes were soaking wet and there were glowing blue dots on his clothes". Narration was acceptable, but much of the dialogue was read either blandly or in tones that did not match the conversation. I felt it needed to be listened to at 1.25x speed as well. 1x actually sounded like slow motion. I was provided this audiobook for free and am voluntarily leaving this review. As with most collections, there were a few that I found to be duds, but overall, definitely worth a listen.

Great original creepy stories

I really enjoyed listening to these stories. They were creepy, original and overall different. I'm looking forward to reading more by P. W. Hillard. I was given an Audible copy of this book by P.W. Hillard for an honest review.

Great Stories that has a feel of Lovecraft

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. These stories are great in that they provide an imaginative world where anything can be possible, Alternate reality, vampires, magic, and even moral lessons. My favorites were Libra, Taurus, and Scorpio. I could easily listen to this again in the near future. Some of the ideas presented are graphic, but overall I did not find them to be overly done. I appreciated the notion that each of the astrological symbols played a role in the stories. The narrated did a good job, sound effects were ok, but in the end, it did not distract from the story. If you like H.P. Lovecraft, Edgar Allen Poe, campfire stories, Twilight Zone, or Dark Half, you will find a story that will click with you. I really enjoyed listening to them and will check out more of P.W. Hillard's writings.

Good Stories

This series of short stories, narrated by Matt Jenkins, is based on each of the astrological signs. Whether it's the sign itself or that which the sign represents becomes the focal point for each horror story. It's rare that I will like every story in an anthology and this one is no different. P.W. Hillard reminds me a lot of H.P. Lovecraft in the style of writing. Although, I did like enough of them to be able to recommend the book to horror lovers. Matt Jenkins lends his talent really well to this genre of stories. I love the different voices he uses, even sounding like he was on a walkie talkie. I've listened to other books narrated by him and his abilities are fairly consistent across the board. I do enjoy listening to him.

A solid collectiom

This is a solid collection of short horror fiction. I have seen many anthologies use a theme for the collection of short stories, but I think this was the first time I’ve seen a single person author do it. Overall, the stories were nice, sharp pieces of short fiction, that tickle the mind and shiver the heart. A couple of the stories I felt had a bit of a tenuous connection to their astrological sign, but it didn’t detract from the enjoyability of the stories at all. For fans of short horror fiction, this may not be the best collection you will read this year, but is well worth giving a spin.

A clever collection of short stories

I absolutely adore short story collections that you can listen to in one sitting or dip in and out of to read/listen to individual tales. The concept of this book is so clever with a great play on words for the title. Each story is based on astrological signs in the sense that it starts off as if you are reading your horoscope in a newspaper or magazine. There is a tale that will appeal to everybody as it's such a good mixture . Whilst I am sure that not one listener will find that every story appeals to them ..they will still find enjoyment and each tale can be read as a standalone. I was given this book by the author/narrator in return for an honest and unbiased review
