A plethora of wonderful stories created by a wide variety of writers, each with their own unique style. Some you will know already and some we’ve yet to introduce you to. However, we’re sure you’ll want to hear from each & every one of them again as we leave 2020 behind us.

My thanks to Zoe of Zooloos Book Tours for the invitation and place on the tour.

This collection of dark short stories is exactly what it says on the cover. Compiled by Spellbound, it contains contributions from 25 authors, some are well known names, and others not so familiar (to me anyway) but all are excellent stories of varying length and on a variety of themes – whether it be supernatural, domestic noir, zombie apocalypse or just good old fashioned murder, most have a sting in the tale. There were some contributions from names I recognised but whose books I wasn’t familiar with – a perfect introduction to seeking out more of their work.

Whether you want to read from end to end as I did, or just dip in and out, there is something here for every crime fan and with 100% of royalties being donated to NHS Charities, its a very worthwhile cause whilst being entertained. I’m not a regular reader of short stories but I really enjoyed this anthology.
