Nice Collection of Creepy Stories

Good collection of haunting short stories. I am really hard pressed to say which one was my favorite. Each one offered up something unique and I thought as a collection they were pretty solid. The nice thing is I didn't find them over the top gruesome just for the sake of gore. They were well thought out and excellently executed.

David Sweeney-Bear did a great job with the narration. I loved his character's voices, the cadence he used, and the overall energy he put into each story. I am really enjoying that P.J. Blakey-Novis keeps using Sweeney-Bear as his narrator. I really thinks he brings these stories to life.

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

Good Stories

I liked the stories and the not always happy endings.

There was some technical difficulties with the narration of the first stories. Background noise, clicks, etc.

Overall I would recommend this!

Best short stories I've read this year

I am not a fan of short stories. Many just don't grab me. If they do, I'm usually disappointed and left wanting more.

This collection of shorts was the best I've read in a long while. Every story was different, each a new horror lurking in the dark. The stories drew me in and left me satisfied at the end. I would definitely read other books by this author.

(The narrator did a great job, too.)

Scary and Creepy Short Stories

This book has some of the scariest short stories I have read/listened to. It has all the elements of creepiness - murders, ghosts, haunted places, etc.

The narrator did a really great job scaring the s--t out of me!

One piece of advice to those who are going to listen to this book - do it at daytime!

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

More creepy stories!

As with the first installment, these tales are every bit as macabre as the rest. The excellent writing and narration combine to give the listener that look behind you feeling. Leave a light on when listening to these.

An awesome collection of gruesome horror

From gruesome murders to an absolutely horrifying ghost story, this title will keep you constantly on edge as you never know what to expect next or the twist right around the corner. Although I do have to admit that my favorite was the last tale in this cool collection, a ghostly tale regarding one of those ghost walks, in this case at a supposedly haunted fort. It will leave you with absolutely no desire to attend one, much less leave the safety of your bed(I really need to quit listening to these at night) until the sun has once again risen. Definitely one that you will enjoy listening to again & again.

Darkly twisted

I was provided with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

This was a fun, dark and twisted little collection.

The first couple of stories, although well told and well-written, felt as if they were lacking something near the end. I didn't get that satisfied feeling I normally get when finishing something.

The rest of the stories made up for that. There's one revolving around a creepy house and trick or treating that I thought was very good! Loved the end to it. A really great example of not only how to write a short story, but how to tell a complete story in so short a word count.

The second highlight of this collection was the title piece: Tunnels. Nothing like a ghost tour gone horribly wrong. The narrator's voice when calling out as a spirit sticks with me in the dark.

Very good collection, would recommend to anyone that wants a few short, dark reads on those cold, lonely nights.

Scary as hell!

There's some really good interesting tales in here. Two left a afterthought with me one being the box. The other being the tunnels I'm really not sure what I thought was spookier. Yes I do I'm kidding they both were lol. That makes you a fabulous writer in my mind. I'm tempted to keep the light's on tonight. Of course can't forget the narrator he done a great job bringing them to life. Well I hope not to actual life.

Wonderfully Creepy.

The narrator leads us through some deliciously creepy stories. Lots to tickle the imagination and make the hairs on your arms tingle. Each tale is compact but rich in content with well constructed characters and situations. An enjoyable listen.
