“Not for the faint of heart!…”

Dark: A Collection of thirteen unsettling tales that take the reader along a journey from which they might not venture back. Prepare to mentally hold onto these stories for a while; although short, they have lingering, almost festering, qualities. Ranging from the bowels of humanity to the supernatural, these shorts won’t disappoint.

“For readers looking to take a journey into the darkest part of your soul, Michelle Merz has put together the perfect selection of stories. The title of the collection, Dark, is definitely appropriate once you finish the first short nightmare, and you probably won’t forget about it for a while. With an amazing style and some very dark inspiration, Merz reminds me of what real horror is all about.”

“This book is not for the faint of heart! It is a collection of superbly written stories that will thrill any reader of horror and macabre fiction! Michelle Merz goes where many writers will not- at least not completely. Her stories are both terrifying and suspenseful, utilizing the sensory and psychological experience of her characters to bring readers to an ending that is often unexpected and unsettling. I loved this book and would truly recommend it to anyone who has a love of the darker side of life and experience. The stories are thought-provoking and thoroughly detailed. No heartbeat goes unnoticed and no dark shadows unexplored… If you’re looking for a book to keep you up at night and one that will not fail to please in the darkest of possible ways, “Dark: A Collection” is a grouping of short stories not to be missed!”

“If you have been dying to read something original and dark, put Dark: a collection on your list. The stories are unsettling, bizarre and creepy, they get under your skin, give you goosebumps and make you look in the closet before you turn the lights out. Defiantly a must read if you are a fan of horror.”

“Every story in the collection typically comes with a twist. And while you might see how one or two plots play out, just keep reading. There is usually something very sadistic, or strangely satisfying, about ending another person’s life from the viewpoint of the characters, leaving the reader shocked and haunted for several nights to come.”

“If nothing else, this collection cuts through the horror until you can see the bone with all the gory details. And when you turn the last page and wonder why these stories do not want to leave your thoughts, it is the beautiful way Merz describes the darkest events. It is this specific contradiction that really had me finishing the collection in a single setting. However, be warned that it is not for the faint-hearted. As someone who loves horror and the diversity that comes with it, I did not expect this collection to be so powerful and so downright horrific. And do not think that Merz requires any special monsters or creatures to send chills down your spine. All she needs are some real people with some serious issues, and the result is going to be nothing less than absolutely Dark. Readers who may have lost their love for horror along the way, you will find it again in this collection.”
