Through life and death, the only constant is our fear of the unknown: bloody footprints continue to walk around a lighthouse; Grandma’s warnings of the Autumn People are finally heard loud and clear; and a girl moves into a new house to find a bloodstained carpet…that no one else can see.Keep the lights on and brace yourself for ten creepy tales of horror and misfortune....

whispers in the shadows a horror anthology Reviews
This is a great book for Halloween time but you may want to lock the doors and cuddle with someone. I do have my favorites and I like them because there more of a story and they both are written so well you feel the story and so they stay with you. That's how I like to write. I will warn you this anthology does not have the person's information between the stories so if your reading the book good you will see when the story ends. If it's a kindle it will read as if it's all one long story unless you catch it and go back. I like the other anthologies where it breaks up between the stories with the person's info. I did like the illustrations between each story.First story- the cat lady:Interstin I don't like cat and this story did not help that. It almost boarded on the paranormal. Completely freaky. NOT for the faint of heart. YukSecond story- the Lighthouse: Nuts. With this story the word that comes is self prophesy. So sad and horribly misunderstood. It's amazing what fear will blind you to. If you want to write a suspense horror this one helps you get the right feel for that kind of a book.Third story- Beware the Autumn People: Intersting. a red riding hood meets solstice ghosts. This one also.Forth Story- Renewal: I did not like this one it was more disturbing and maybe on the sickside.Fifth story- The girl: This is an interesting ghostly mystery.Sixth story- Ship deserted Sargasso 1840: This is one of my favorites so far. It's fastinating in it's telling and kind of twisted with a strange itching and hallucinations. THe whole time I was saying it's this, it's this! I won't say the name because that would give it away. I loved the story with in the story of a true ship. Seventh story- In her reflection: This is the best story, this story lingers long after you finish reading it. It is also one of my favorite, probably my most favorite. It's clever with reflections of several different things, I think I could read this over and over and still find little relective things within. I love it because you think one thing throught the story until the truth is revealed and your completely caught off guard at the end. THe only problem with this book is you don't want it to end. I would so read another book with the rest of the story. It leaves it open enough that you are creeped out and want to read more to see if it will work itself out.Eighth story- Don't offend a girl in love: OH! NO! Wow, okay, this is a worp of stocker/computer nerd mesh and the end. oh boy. I did get a little confused with this one but it came together in the end.Ninth story- THe Solstice Beast: This is such a good story, creative, a little yucky but holy cow the twist will leave you breathless and shivering.Tenth story- 43 Market street:This is a descriptive jack the ripper meets a paranormal psychopath ghost/ clue. You won't understand the raven thing till the end. . . maybe. WHOA! Shiver.
This is an amazing collection of stories! And this comes from someone who doesn't even like horror stories. Hard to pick a favorite. "Cat Lady" freaked me out pretty good, "Sargasso 1840" was fascinating because I know a little about the Rosalie, "In Her Reflection" was the most relatable to me personally, and "The Renewal" was just absolutely horrifying. They're all great stories, but I'll probably remember those ones the best. This collection is definitely getting dragged out every Halloween.
