Happy endings are so overrated. This collection of short horror stories does what we've all wanted previous collections to do- break our hearts and leave us wanting more.
Telling tales of disembodied voices, the mysterious disappearance of neighbors, and haunted dolls with hypnotism on their mind, this collection offers no reprieve from the thrill within it's pages. Watch the characters you fall in love with meet their untimely demise, be stabbed in the back by so-called "friends," or be eaten by a crudely resurrected cat. Can you handle it?

Did You Say Something?
Nice read, a bit predictable, but something I’d still like to read if fleshed out to full length.
Umm. I’m just not sure what to say here. It could be lack of sleep, but I’m a tiny bit confused. Was she happy about what was about to happen now?
Confessions of a Gravedigger
I liked Milo enough that this story made me sad, but there was lot of tell and little show. This is the first time I’ve actually understood show vs tell when reading.
Suddenly, the Telephone Rang
Okay, I really liked this one! Short and sweet, yes, but also laid out the story nicely in the space! Just enough creep factor to keep it from being cheesy, and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
Eeeew this was disturbingly good! I would LOVE to read a fully developed version of this!
Holly in the Snow
In all honesty, I would have given this higher marks if it had been a whole story. But alas, it is not. It reads more like a first chapter, maybe a prologue, rather than a self-contained story. It was well written and the characters pretty well defined for such a short length, but it felt like it was merely an introduction, and was unsatisfying. Nothing of consequence (aside from the very ending) actually happened.
Waaaah this one is feeeeels! David is so cute and sweet and I can just picture him sitting there!
Short and not so sweet lol. Very reminiscent of Chucky, but with a little added power. Not a bad read!
Overall, this short anthology was entertaining and I’d suggest it to those who want a quick, gentle thrill.
