    Alright

    The stories are okay but I felt each ended without resolution. The first while extremely disturbing, could totally stand alone and be further developed. It was the only one I found myself invested in and caring about the characters. Written in British enlish also.

    Great read, even better that it was free!

    Really creative plot twists that expose you to a variety of characters while maintaining a continuous flow. Looking forward to reading more on Allen and his sister in The Faceless.

    Quick, easy read. Dark and disturbing with a great action packed

    Quick, easy read. Dark and disturbing with a great action packed conclusion. However this wasn't a story that will stick with me very long. But to sit down and read it in one sitting, for about half an hour? It's short and free, so yes, I would recommend this to readers that enjoy the horror genre, or ghost stories.

    A good, fast read.

    The first story kind of shocked me but unfortunately horrible things like that do happen in real life.
