Genre: Anthology; Horror; Supernatural/Paranormal
A thin crack is all it takes for wickedness to coil into our world. Winding through the delicate minds of innocents and the twisted desires of killers, it preys upon the crippled pieces of our souls.
From a train bound for Hell, to the greedy cravings of a murderous unicorn, Crooked Souls is a collection of sixteen original horror stories about broken people and the unearthly encounters disturbing their lives.
If you like horror that builds steadily to twist endings, you’ll love Crooked Souls.
I definitely chose the right time of year to read this collection because it has certainly put me in the spooky Halloween mood! One of the best things I want to point out is how diverse it is. Every story is so different from the other that it’s almost like reading stories from multiple talented writers.
The author is clearly not at a lack for ideas and has an amazing writing style that’s both easy to follow and easy to visualize. Each story draws you in then spits you out with that eerie feeling us horror fans live for. ‘Crooked Souls’ easily gives several nights of awesome reads, though I was so enthralled I took an entire day to read through all of them.
I’m not usually one for rereading books since there are so many new ones out there to discover, but I have a feeling this one is going to be a Halloween tradition for me (kind of like how some people will watch their favorite horror movies every year during this season). That being said, it’s not Halloween themed; just an awesome anthology that can be enjoyed any day of the year.
