    This is a very well written collection that is really easy to get into.  Grotta has such a straightforward yet approachable writing style that draws you in while keeping you on your toes.  He paints some brilliant pictures and tells some amazing tales while providing his readers with a few laughs.  Each story is told as a separate entity, yet they all blend together into a unique collection.  This short trip into the paranormal definitely packs a punch.  

    You get to know the characters of these various stories quite well considering the short length of each story.  Grotta only provides you with the details necessary for their role while focusing on the story in question as a whole.

    This novel is definitely perfect for Halloween, especially for those who enjoy the holiday without the scariness.  Grotta has created the perfect balance between spooky and funny.  

    Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.
