Synopsis

What if you could steal the final moments from the dying?  What if you had the darkest secret, but couldn’t think what it might be?  What if you entered the forest in the deep of the night.  Who is the melting man?  And are your neighbours really whom they appear to be?

So many questions.

To find the answers, you must enter a darker place.  Thirteen stories.  Thirteen poems.  Thirteen more doorways.

    Well-written and full of atmosphere

    "Darker Places" is a collection of thirteen poems interspersed with thirteen short stories, mainly horror or paranormal, with a hint of humor in some. They focus mainly on the themes of death, love, loss, hunger, and the passage of time. The author comes up with some truly memorable lines in both his stories and poems, but the rhyming in some of the poems is a bit forced; I much prefer the free verse. The stories are well-written and full of atmosphere but can become a bit repetitive, with death staring everyone in the face. As such, this collection is probably best sampled in small doses, much like a box of fine chocolates. Enjoy! The poems: Echo Words Moonlight Summer Loving Swept Away The House on the Hill Little Dead Riding Hood Phoenix Gremlins Time Never Again The Face of the Storm Fallen The stories: Hunger Canvas The Coming Secrets The Masquerade The Lake Home Creature Soul The Crow Footsteps Stolen Moments Prelude I received this book in return for an honest review.
