Read full description of the books:
This is the last of the short story compilations by this author that I received in exchange for my HONEST review.
It also begins with a well done introduction, one that I think people reading this story should make sure to read through. She gives a lot of pertinent information in it that explains where she's coming from and her stories. She also includes more information at the end of her stories which are worth reading.
"Fear is personal. The same story may constrict one person's chest and set their heart racing, yet send only a mild tingle down another readers' spine." ~Rayne Hall
This also had some of the stories that I had already seen in the 6 Scary Tales Volumes 1-3.
Greywalker - A very good story. Events that I didn't expect. One of my favorites of all of hers.
Prophetess - Another good story. A look at the fall of Troy to the Greek. I really like her explanation at the end of this one of what led her to decide to do a story like this.
Earth Stone, A Life - A powerful story with an unexpected ending.
By your own free will - Another one of my favorites. It really makes a lot of sense. A look at what a woman is willing to do to get the man that she FEELS is the man of her dreams. The ending, ladies, will really make you think.
The Bridge Chamber - A really creepy story. If you are claustrophobic, this may not be the story for you. (But then I have an issue with sharks because of the Jaws movie and my mom's best friend's son. It doesn't stop me from watching Shark Week or reading books about sharks - but I will not watch that movie, not for anything.) I also like her explanation at the end of this one too.
Terre Vert and Payne's Gray - A creepy and well-written story.
They say - An interesting little short, which only takes up a page.
Tuppence Special - I like this one, but then I have a thing for spooky amusement park rides haha
Normal, Considering the Weather - Not one of my favorites (and the only story I can really say that about in this collection). The bug part does give me the heebidy jeebidies, but the story fell flat for me.
Disturbed Sleep - Because of this story, I don't think I will ever live alone again haha.
Arete - An interesting look at the Greek version of werewolves.
(I didn't review all of the stories here - only the ones that I had not previously reviewed in her other collections.)
