In Every Legend, There Is A Seed Of Truth.

Welcome to the Witching Hour

Bloody Mary…

Bloody Mary…

Bloody…maybe we shouldn’t test that just yet.

Urban legends, fact or fiction, at the end of the day they’re all stories. We know not to spin around the room in the dark whispering her name. We’ve heard about the man with the hook and the terror that stalks the babysitter while she’s home alone.

But there are other tales told around the fire at night. The man finding the steps into hell and sanity flickering away. Mind control experiments by governments, big and small. The woman married to the man of peculiar tastes. There are the haunted hospitals, sleep trials in Russia and more.

Slenderman and Bigfoot are nowhere within these stories; these are only the unusual and dark ones, slanted into truth.

“I love the idea of many different stories written in one anthology. Halloween is a fun time of year and while these stories did not terrify me (I am a sucker for all things that terrify) I really enjoyed them and hope to read more of them. They all are unique and add a little extra to each story. I also love finding new authors and look forward to reading more from them as well. You will not be disappointed by picking up this book. I definitely recommend.”

“These are great quick reads, and a great way to get a sample of many different authors, maybe a new favorite or two. All have different levels of darkness in then, some might even leave you mind racing from twists and turns. My pick of the book is Melt Me by Maggie Jane Schuler, a quick read that give you everything, romance, mystery and sweet treats! I also enjoyed Chasing Shadows by Jenniefer Andersson with fast paced story line and it’s leading ending. All are interesting and different, a great collection!”

This book is a collection of short scary stories just in time for Halloween. I gave this collection five stars because of a couple of different reasons.

One, the stories are well done. I am hoping that when the authors get the rights back that some of these are turned in to full stories. Sometimes this happens, and there are a couple that I am rooting for. Please tell me more!

Two, I did get some real shivers in some places. There are some interesting twists in some of these stories that I did not see coming. A few I kind of guessed, but the twists on the tales kept them interesting. Keep away from anyone with green hair!

While I didn’t find any of them super terrifying, I grew up on horror movies, some people may find at least one to be a bit gory. But hey what’s a good scary story without a killer or two?”
