Great Short Stories!

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

Here's another batch of pull-you-in-and-get-you-wowing-about-what-just-happened kinda stories. What can I say? This is a great author who knows how to write some creepy stuff! His stories are entertaining, attention holders, and you'll never want them to end.

As I stated in my review for "Tunnels," the narrator did a great job! I'd definitely listen to him narrator again, especially anything written by Mr. Blakey-Novis.

Chilling

Loved all these stories almost as much as I did the ones in Tunnels. A few of these stories had predictable endings, but the rest were wicked and suspenseful. Dreamcatcher was my favorite piece on this audiobook, and the narration was just wonderful.

Recommended for people looking for a chill down their spine.

Intriguing collection of shorts to keep you up

A collection of horror short stories that will not only keep your interest, they'll keep you up all night. If you are the jumpy type, I wouldn't listen to these at night. Not only would you end up staying up later than intended to keep listening, you might find your dreams haunted by strange creatures...

Short Stories of Darkness

If you like stories that are creepy, strange and dark, then this book is highly recommended.

But since this book is just a collection of short stories, I ended up feeling teased. Like each story left me hanging and wanting more.

The narration was good and it certainly gave me the chills in some parts.

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

Something For Everyone (Sort Of)

If you're looking for a spooky set of short stories you can certainly do worse than Embrace The Darkness and you won't do much better either. Like all shorts, some are stronger than others but there's no weak entries in this pack. I thoroughly enjoyed this brief compendium. Please note: I received a copy of this for review. However, the provision of a review copy does not influence the review provided.

Fun weird horror anthology

I had a listen to the audiobook version, and it was an enjoyable spin on the ordinary people in extraordinary situations sub-genre. The stories range from a man going for an operation to have a cyst removed from his foot, to twins who have supernatural powers at a time when witches are burnt at the stake, and others. All are well written, and the audiobook is well narrated. The anthology is reasonably short, about 90 minutes or so, and well worth a read or listen if you like weird horror.
