These 21 dreadfully dark tales held me captive from first to last story This is unusual for me for as much as I love anthologies I nearly always find myself skipping one or 2 stories in a book of this size I never hold that against them it s only the law of averages that deems not every story can be a winner with every reader Somehow Shadowy Natures beat those odds at least with me The only negative thing I could say is that some of the endings were a bit vague for my tastes but even then it did not take away from the fact that I enjoyed the story Some readers may take offense at the subject matter in a few of the gruesome tales Don t say I did not warn you A few of my favorites were Heart Skull Heart by Bryan Miller a contemporary tale that could have easily been ripped from today s headlines Being based on reality made it all the unsettlingThe Wolf Gang by Barrie Darke begins innocently enough as a man goes home with a coworker after a long day in hopes of a good night sleep before an early start in the morning It s not long before I uestioned his judgement because if it were me I would have been too scared to sleep in that house In A Mother s Eyes by Andrew Punzo Finds a lieutenant making the sad visit to inform a mother that her son was killed in action and getting a uite unexpected reaction Maternal Bond by KC Grifant in which a new mom battles lack of sleep and postpartum depression really got under my skin as I recalled my own earliest days of coping with a baby who cried non stop Ring Rock by James Edward O brien is told from the point of view of a man who went along with his wife s wishes to purchase her dream home even though for him it was a nightmare come true Accessory by KN Johnson pretty much blew me away It was not what I expected from a simple beginning of a girl who was born unwanted to a father who only wanted boys This was a twisty psychological horror that I won t soon forget Itch by Louis Stephenson was high on the gross out scale after reading it I think I may have even grossed myself out by using that word scale Yuck Walking On Knives by Mathhew R Davis tosses us into the midst of a stale marriage looking to spice things up and finding the wrong kind of excitement Like Abigail Winchell by Christina Delia takes a look at the fine line between friends and frenemies be they real or imaginedIf I have not singled out other stories it does not mean I did not enjoy them only that these are the ones still embedded in my mind and that days after finishing this book I can still recall them off the top of my head I received an advance copy for review

Free read ☆ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ñ Rebecca Rowland Rebecca Rowland ñ 6 Free read Free read Shadowy Natures ó PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB Housewife makes a strange new friend and a neglected teen finds solace and inspiration in a vicious classmate’s company When her brother moves back into the family home a woman becomes consumed by what he leaves behind; when a man disappears his sister considers the warning signs he may have been leaving since childhood One couple abandons urban life for the isolating wilderness while another plays a dangerous game hoping to rekindle their relationship While one son revisits the scene of his father’s horrific crime spree another returns home to ponder his family’s well hidden secretFrom uniue twists on traditional terror tropes to fresh frights found in the most innocuous of places these tales will surprise and unnerve even the most veteran horror fans. I agree with another review on here Usually when I pick up an anthology I know if I m lucky I m going to REALLY enjoy a few of the stories like some of them and want to skip some as well This is true for single author collections too It s not a criticism of those stories I liked least We all have different tastes However I must say Shadowy Natures is the first anthology where I genuinely enjoyed every single one of the stories even though the subjects narrator voices and author styles were very different All are psychological horror Don t expect any monsters or splatterporn but DO be prepared for some serious CREEP and I say that in a good way Mandibular Fixation Taking Out the Garbage and Ring Rock all have gradually building tension the kind where if they were movies you d hold off going for popcorn because you just know something big is going to happen any moment Seven Days of Dog Walking Uncle In a Mother s Eyes The Wolf Gang Cuckoo and Like Abigail Winchell all made me start to uestion my spidey sense In each there is something very rotten in Denmark and it s not until at least halfway through each story that the dark truth is revealed A few of the other stories Drifter His Death Brings No Respite Itch and Lemonade truly surprised me in their uniue approaches to the genre incorporating the Old West as a setting a storyline involving a revenge plot on a man in hospice a common skin condition gone berserk and an underground collectors item of books bound in human skin respectively There are also everyday situations that uickly escalate into terror traps like in Maternal Bond just had a baby expecting one soon you ll freak out or Christmas Shopper are you a Black Friday regular you won t be after this story or Walking on Knives looking for something to spice up your marriage DON T And of course there are stories about everyday humans who simply enjoy killing andor hurting others In Control Accessory My Father s Home Heart Skull Heart and Roger just to remind us that yep my next door neighbor may in fact have bodies in his basement I cannot recommend this anthology enough and I dare any fan of psychological horror to read it and try to be disappointed It can t be done I received this book as an ARC from the publisher but frankly I would pay for it I think it s only 15 on and I ll probably buy a copy for my niece who also enjoys horror
