My Rating: 4 Stars
Old-fashion horror at its best ! Haunted houses, prison torture, monsters and creatures that brought fears I had as a child to light! The cover is amazing, beautiful, daring and creepy all in one!
“Doorways to the Unseen: 6 Tales of Terror and Suspense” by James Dermond is a collection of horror tales that gave me goosebumps! The tales are very well written and the style is very good, I really got into the stories and their characters. I must admit that the endings were a bit disappointing but still fun to read.
My favourite tales were:
- The Drowned Man, a lake house with a haunting story and a deadly ending;
- Grandfather’s Cane, a tale of warning and caution for the living;
- The Plague, a sudden wave of madness that consumes the people of a small town, turning people into monsters;
- Returned to Dust, a tale of punishment over the punishers inside a prison.
These short stories are great and each one proves to be unique and engaging. It’s a very easy novel read, the stories flow quite nicely and it’s very entertaining. I definitely want to the read more from James Dermond in the future, hopefully sooner rather than later!
Hope you find an idea for your next reading here.
