Publisher's Summary

L.A. Banks, Tananarive Due, and Brandon Massey are three of the hottest names in suspense fiction. In this collection of flesh-crawling tales, each author contributes one deliciously twisted selection. A writer unearths dangerous truths in backwoods Mississippi and a man's sanity - and life - are threatened by disturbing visions. Then, in the third and final tale, two children are forced to face off against terrifying ancestors.

3 Black Supernatural stories by 3 authors.

Would you listen to The Ancestors again? Why?

I enjoyed all 3 stories. The first ended abruptly but it was a good story, I just wanted more. Black history integers me, then through in some supernatural and I'm hooked. Narration in all 3 stories was fantastic.

I love all the stories.

All the stories were very good and wellwritten. The only thing is I wish the stories were longer. But I would definitely listen to these stories again.

Tananarive Due saves it

The first two stories we're ok.. the 2nd better than the first. I would have abandon this audible if it wasn't for the knowledge that I would be gifted with a story by Due. She didn't disappoint, the story and performance were awesome, Robin Miles is fantastic and engaging . . I give Due and Miles a solid 5 stars.. The others a 3 star.

Not what I expected

Would you recommend The Ancestors to your friends? Why or why not?

Probably not - I listened to The Good House by Tananarive Due and loved it so I thought these 3 short stories would be similar. They were not. I think they would have been better as full stories/books.
