Chilling tales!!

Another winner from Scare Street! There may only be three short stories in this but they were all well written and developed. I think my favourite one was from Ron Ripley but it was close because all of them were scary and gave me chills.

Thom Bowers has quickly become a favourite narrator. He has an impressive array of tones and voices and is always able to capture the atmosphere perfectly.

OMG, OMG oh Em Gee!

I’ll never forget the first time I read Sean or a story volume one, by the time it got to the game a girl who is playing a game with a character who is named after her and all that that story entailed I knew I found a treasure. I absolutely love short horror stories I listen to this recently again and I still love it as much as I did back when I listen to it the first time. I highly recommend this book to those who love horror scary children spooky ghost and people who live in Maine.

great fast paced scary stories

This is the stories of Scary Ghosts, Monsters, Demons, and Hauntings. This is the trio of short horror stories. The story of mirrors got me. The stories have well developed storylines with believable and interesting characters that make the stories believable and at times you will be creeped out. I think you will enjoy these quick reads. Enjoy

Terrifying Short Horror Stories

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
Loved this first installment of terrifying horror stories. The narrator is perfect for this genre, and added extra creepiness to the already well written tales. I look forward to checking out the next collection in the Scare Street series!

Very short yet entertaining horror stories. Great narration added to the eerie feeling they had.

Scary collection

This audiobook was a great little time filler as I had just over an hour of driving to get back to base and didn't want to start a long novel just before a long weekend off. Three excellent short stories that are well written and nicely narrated. They kind of remind me of my childhood/early teens 40+ years ago when I'd have a torch under the bedcovers reading each edition of the Pan Book of Horror Stories and similar anthologies while I was supposed to be sleeping.

Looking forward to more of these books from Scare Street.

I received a free copy of this audiobook either from the author or a promotion or giveaway and am voluntarily writing an honest and unbiased review.

A good way to pass the lockdown.

A good triple pack of horror. Not scary but great twists. Third story is different as first person. Enough to make you think about them for a while afterwards..
