***** Spine Tingling Storytelling Review by Rox Burkey
This collection of ghoulish tales will either scare you, make you pull the sheet over your head, or keep you awake jumping at shadows. The anthology is around the dead, undead, and urban legend; these stories are perfect campfire fodder. The fantastic authors of this anthology are Joan Hall, Mae Clair, Jan Morrill, Staci Troilo, Pamela Foster, Stacy Claflin, Michele Jones, K.E. Lane, Harmony Kent, and C.S. Boyack.
These stories contain a delightful Halloween spirit to their plots as they revitalize ghost legends, one scare at a time. I like that each author can showcase their talented skills to this occult brew differently. These stories easily stand on their own. Each tale is unique.
The differences between these stories are the individual style of the author and making this collection creepy fun with free goosebumps. I enjoyed other books by several of these authors yet discovered new authors, and I added a few individual stories to my wish list.
Imagine yourself with friends after supper with the campfire blazing and resident noises supporting the perimeter. Each person, in turn, reads a story from this book, adding inflection and tone in all the right places. I bet everyone sleeps in the same tent—close, but there is the theory of safety in numbers.
I recommend this story to anyone who enjoys horror stories that keep your heart rate elevated. Anytime you want a horror fix, you can pick out one to reread—excellent authors with different styles. You won’t go wrong with Macabre Sanctuary.
