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.

I LOVED THIS!

I received a free copy of this audiobook by the author for an honest review.

While I can't say I've read or listened to many stories that were described as being in the horror or scary genres, these stories were Wow! I loved them! It might not have been a good idea to listen to them prior to going to sleep, but I did it! And because my imagination started getting the best of me, I was up for a long time, constantly scanning my room for monsters. LOL They made me think of the Scary Stories series that I read as a kid, only this batch is for the adults. Did I say I loved them? I think my favorite story was "Scratches." That was a scary one because I couldn't imagine hearing strange noises coming from inside a wall, only to stick my head in and be confronted with... Scariness!

The narrator did a great job! I'm thinking narrators with accents help bring the scariness of a story out as opposed to a regular American speaker. I don't know, something about an English accent (that's what the narrator had, right?) just added to the stories. For example, when he talked as the little girl in "Tunnels." OMG! He was giving me the creeps with that voice, especially when she was calling out for her mommy.

I would definitely recommend this batch of stories to anyone and everyone I know...that loves scary stuff.

More quirky horror from PJ Blakey-Novis

Got some time to kill? I basically listened to this in the space of a couple of hours this morning. It may be short, but the stories are fun, creepy and bizarre enough to whet your appetite. This is the second anthology I've read by this author (Embrace the Darkness), and I think I preferred this one, although both were great. In this sextet, I'm not sure whether the trick-or-treaters or the ghost hunters was my favourite, but all six were highly entertaining.

The narrator, too, was bang on, adding a lot of character to the, eh, characters. I'll have to check out the PJ's full length stuff to see if the author can match this over the course of a few hundred pages.

Wonderful and Creepy

Short but terrifying, these stories definitely paint a vivid picture of the macabre. I especially enjoyed Tunnels, and the twist at the end. Fantastic creepy narration made the piece all the more chilling.

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.
