A wonderful dark, twisted, and sinister collection that is disturbing in all the right ways. This book will have you cringing and flipping pages like never before. Michael Montoure has written a great collection of creepy stories that are perfect for Halloween, or any other spooky occasion. All the stories are short enough for anyone to read while waiting at the doctors office, or on your lunch break and I highly recommend that you do! I give this book 5/5. ( )

This is one of the best short story collections I have read in a while. Most of the stories were fresh ideas told from new viewpoints. All dark, creepy and horrific. Some were more subtle than others but they all worked.

Recommended for those who enjoy King and Poe. ( )

Got this one through Member Giveaways. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection! Several of the stories reminded me of great classic 'Twilight Zone' episodes. I also particularly liked Daddy's Girls and The Notebook. A couple stories dealt with the Fae in interesting ways. I will certainly be looking for more from this author. Highly Recommended! ( )

I wasn't sure when I first started reading the book how well the stories were going to be in the novel, but I enjoyed reading them. I enjoyed the different point-of-views in each story and the differences in each one. Some of these are a bit dark but it was worth getting through it. ( )

A great collection of short stories that raise the hair on the back of your neck. Warning do not ead this book at night when you are home alone. I am not the greatest fan of short stories only because you just get into the story and it ends. I would love to see some of these stories expanded into a full novel ( )
