A 3.5 star read
Midnight Shadows published by Eerie River Publishing is a collection of original and creepy horror short stories. Even though I don’t think I knew any of these authors prior to reading, I have to say there is a lot of talent hidden among these pages.
I was really excited when I was offered to review this collection. The cover is haunting and really sets the tone for this book. I have to be honest and say I didn’t love every single story, but most of them were rather amazing. Some of them just weren’t for me, but that is to be expected in a book with a large number of different authors.
Here is some I really enjoyed:
Tasty Treats by Tim Mendees, which is the story of a mysterious traveling clown circus coming to town. It also has the best candy floss in Europe, so get ready!
The Unconsumables by Joel R. Hunt, which might be the coolest take on the old zombie trope I’ve read in a while. Such a good one!
And last we have The Mirror That Tells Truth and Lies by McKenzie Richardson. Now, this might actually be my favorite out of the bunch. It is such a deliciously gory story, even I found myself cringing. And that means a lot coming from me.
A big thanks to the publisher for the review copy.
