This Collection of Dark Tales,which I received a long time ago, by some fabulous authors is out of print and no longer available, so you would have to do your research to get your copy. If you know one of the authors, who knows? Or, a particular story may tickle your funny bone and you will want to know more about the author.
There is one story by Kristine Mason Smile for Me @ $.99, that is available on its own.
Welcome to the dark side.
The title is appropriate and, like in the Jurassic movies, when they say Run, you Run! You may recognize many of these authors, maybe even spy one of your favorites in these eight novellas. I know I did and they managed to give me plenty of scares. I reviewed this as a hole and individually.
Resurrection Morning by Caleb Pirtle III: This historical fiction takes place during WWII. Spies, secrets, betrayals and lots of action led me on a wild ride, culminating in an ending I never guessed but loved it. 4 Stars
Black Out by Sue Coletta: Do we ever really know our neighbors? What secrets they harbor? What slights they feel? And judging a book by its cover…Now I know where that saying came from and in this case it could be your undoing. So much happens in a short time and she fooled me. 4 Stars
Sweeton’s Shangri-La by Rachel Aukes: A treasure may, a pair of lovers, ad evil god, and an Eden, of sorts. The couple ignores disregards the legend and follows the trail. Predictable but plenty of suspense while I waited for IT to happen.
The Sideshow by Kimberly McGath: Do you like the circus? Welll..this is like no circus you have ever attended. There is danger all around, but I sure did not see where I was going to end up. I enjoy an author that can surprise me. 3 Stars
Three Days by Jennifer Chase: A three day vacation…but it is not the exotic tropical vacation she had envisioned.Three Days could be a Twilight Zone episode. She planned her vaction down to the very last detail, but this trip was impulsive. She went as one person and came back as another. What happened in between is quite the adventure. 4 Stars
Smile For Me by Kristine Mason: Vanity is a curse and Lisa was not happy about getting older. When she saw what Melody’s Grace did for her friend, she signed in. This gruesome haunted house story will make you think twice wishing instead of being thankful for what you have. It made me cringe, want to cover my eyes so I can’t see, and wonder if I really want to know the end of the story. 4 Stars
Bleeder by Paul Dale Anderson: She had put the past behind her…until she opened the door to a man with a gun. And the blood, the smell brought it back to her. Some psychological thrills in this short suspense story. 4 Stars
A Love Story by Kathy Love: They pulled a prank, only it didn’t turn out so funny, in fact, it was quite tragic. Guilt. It does come back to haunt them and I am intrigued. There’s a mystery going on and I haven’t figured it out…yet. 4 Stars
A Promise is a Promise by Joe Broadmeadow: A tale of childhood promises and a man willing to sacrifice it all to get his revenge. A predictable yet fun story. 3 Stas
The Game by Elle J Rossi: Would she win or lose the game? Twisted tale of life and death and it ended like I wanted. 3 Stars
