Review

I was provided with a copy in exchange for an honest review.

This was a fun, dark and twisted little collection.

The first couple of stories, although well told and well-written, felt as if they were lacking something near the end. I didn’t get that satisfied feeling I normally get when finishing something.

The rest of the stories made up for that. There’s one revolving around a creepy house and trick or treating that I thought was very good! Loved the end to it. A really great example of not only how to write a short story, but how to tell a complete story in so short a word count.

The second highlight of this collection was the title piece: Tunnels. Nothing like a ghost tour gone horribly wrong. I listened to the audio version of this and the narrator’s voice when calling out as a spirit sticks with me in the dark.

Very good collection, would recommend to anyone that wants a few short, dark reads on those cold, lonely nights.
