Classic Victorian & Edwardian Ghost Stories

Classic Victorian & Edwardian Ghost Stories Collection By Rex Collings.

This is a book to be read by a blazing fire on a winter's night, with the curtains drawn close and the doors securely locked. The unquiet souls of the dead, both as fictional creations and as 'real' apparitions, roam the pages of this haunting new selection of ghost stories by Rex Collings. Some of these stories are classics while others are lesser-known gems unearthed from this vintage era of tales of the supernatural. There are stories from distant lands - Fisher's Ghost by John Lang is set in Australia and A Ghostly Manifestation by 'A Clergyman' is set in Calcutta. In this selection, Sir Walter Scott (a Victorian in spirit if not in fact), keeps company with Edgar Allen Poe, Sheridan Le Fanu and other illustrious masters of the genre."

Some stories are interesting & engaging some, well not so much.
Some are classic unforgettable Litature, like the "telltale heart" & others Are bitter sweet like "Phemie's Story".
All in all it was quite a good read, & there defiantly was not a "hauntly" part in the whole thing, in fact majority if not all the book is quite "Ghost Free"... but if you chance to come across a copy in a second hand book shop maybe, give it a go. You might be surprised. Io

Review: The Heat.

The Heat (The Big Bad Wolf #1)
By Heather Killough-walden.

Lily St James returns to her home town Baton Rouge in Louisiana & quickly falls back in love with her high school crush the tall, handsome & arrogant Daniel Kane. Lily is suddenly swept of her feet when she discovers she's a werewolf dormant who has two strong alpha weres wanting her as there mate.

The Heat wasn't particularly good nor was particularly bad it was just ok. Some parts I liked & others I didn't, a part of me wanted to give it 4 stars a different part 2 so I thought I'd go smack in the middle with 3 stars.

The Plot was slightly interesting & had me guessing. So all in all its ok but nothing special!

Review: Dreams of Darkness.

Dreams of Darkness by Barry James.

Jordan Hanson is having a bad day,ok the worst bad day in the history of the world, he just doesn't know it yet.
I was pleasantly surprised with dreams of darkness, from the Synopsis & the genre I thought it was just going to be a run of the mill horror novel but it turned out to be so much more. I also really enjoyed a male point of view, from both the character & author for a change.
Barry has done a wonderful job at bring this story to life , with such a complex plot & characters you would think you'd be weighted down or be utterly confused but I never was!
I really can't put into words how much I enjoyed it with out blabbering like a fool, so I'll simply say the plot, the Characters, the writing where all superb, if your into horror, urban fantasy or paranormal its a must read! Hopefully there's a second but at the same time hopefully not because this book stands strong on its own.
