Thirty Scary Tales Book Review
Thirty creepy, atmospheric stories by Rayne Hall.
The horror in these stories is spooky, creepy, unsettling and sometimes disturbing. It is not very violent or gory; however, the stories may not be suitable for young readers without parental guidance. PG 13.
This book is a compilation of volumes 1-5 of the Six Scary Tales books. It includes the acclaimed stories Burning and The Bridge Chamber.
All stories have been previously published in magazines, ezines, collections and anthologies. British English.
Stories in collection include:
The Devil You Know, Greywalker, Prophetess, Each Stone A Life, By Your Own Free Will, The Bridge Chamber, Only A Fool, Four Bony Hands, The Black Boar, Double Rainbows, Druid Stones, Burning, Scruples, Seagulls, Night Train, Through the Tunnel, Black Karma, Take Me To St. Roch's, Turkish Night, Never Leave Me, The Colour of Dishonour, Beltane, The Painted Staircase, I Dived The Pandora, Terre Vert and Payne's Grey, They Say, Tuppence Special, Disturbed Sleep, Normal Considering the Weather, Arete.
This book was really fun to read. I loved that the stories were short and that made it really fast to read. At the end of each story the author explains how she got the idea for the story. I would have preferred if that was in the beginning of each story because I would have to go to the end of each story to read that first before actually reading the story. None of the stories in this book were actually scary but they were all good and a little strange. My favorite was By Your Own Free Will where a very intelligent women trades IQ points to be more attractive and get a mans attention. It's crazy what women will do for love. All the stories are very different but they are all good.
You can buy this book on Amazon
