    You won't find happy endings here!!

    If you are all about sweet little love stories and happy endings, Killers and Demons is not for you. But, if you want some gruesome, spine-chilling murders and merciless demons, look no further!

    Killers and Demons is a collection of five short stories about, you guessed it, twisted serial killers and disturbing demons. From Valentine's slayings to callous, vindictive soul-hunters, A.F. Stewart gets it right!

    I was absolutely hooked from page one. Actually, make that the cover! Right away, you know what this book is all about, and you know it is going to be remarkable. Stewart has a fantastic writing style that gives the reader the haunting feel of the story immediately and portrays the terror of a full-length horror novel in just a few enthralling pages. Her characters are spot on, from the abrupt and heartless murderers of "Devoid," "You Got to have Heart," and "London, 1888" (which reminded me very much of Sweeny Todd) to her humanized yet pitiless demons in "Victorian Shadows" and "Advent of Night" (the latter two being my favorites).

    I highly recommend this collection of stories as a quick and entertaining piece-for more mature readers!

    I'm thinking the 4 star and 5 star reviews were written by the author or a close friend. The stories aren't bad, but even at $.20 per story, you're barely getting your money's worth. 1 star taken away because this should be a free book in my humble opinion. There are plenty of free short story collections as good or better.

    Gourmet scares in this collection of gruesome tales Short scary

    Gourmet scares in this collection of gruesome tales

    Short scary tales hook you from the first page in A. F. Stewart’s Killers and Demons. In classic short horror tradition, the tales evoke darkness with beautiful use of language, and twist the reader’s emotions onto a slippery, slithery slope. Reminding me of Ray Bradbury, the author sets up simple scenes—a dinner table perhaps, laid out for a gourmet meal, a faithful knight at prayer, or the haunting fog of Victorian London. Each tale is perfectly seasoned with surprising stings, leaving the reader haunted by the sort of questions horror is meant to leave. And the author wisely doesn’t give the background—who knows, this killer or demon just might live next door.

    Delicious, perfectly fitting the scary book cover, ideal for a haunting evening’s read… but keep the lights on and play the music loudly.



    Disclosure: I was lucky enough to get a free ecopy of this book, and I already knew I enjoy the author’s writing.
