Cat O’Nine Tales, is a collection of ten short stories, all with a dark, eerie feel to them. Throughout the book there are also numerous illustrations dotted around. These are elegantly drawn and certainly add character to the book, giving it a more enticing feel to it. The stories cover various genres from paranormal to thriller, horror to mystery. Most include animals, with some being the main protagonist too! My personal favourite was ‘The Eternal Sheriff’. Being a book blogger, I could imagine the horrors on so many authors faces if this really occurred. Imagine you’re an author who has decided to kill off one of your characters, but they just refuse to die. I feel that this story could actually be made into a full length novel. I found this collection not only a little dark and sometimes disturbing, but also quite amusing in places. Horror isn’t my normal go-to-genre, but sometimes it’s nice to try something different and step out of your comfort zone. I’m glad that I did, or I would have missed this great book.
I had my fingers crossed for these tales. I’m huge on short stories and collections. I appreciate how difficult it is to write them, but I do expect to get more than some teases. I read the first story. Good one. Then I read the second one and thought, this is my favorite so far. The same happened with the third, the fourth…. I enjoyed all of these stories. There’s also some fun illustrations sprinkled throughout the stories and that added to my enjoyment. There’s a little bit of everything in this collection, and horror and thriller fans will get their fill. My rating is for the author’s writing as much as for the stories. I wanted some wicked twists and feel real characters, and she delivered.
