4.0 out of 5 stars The perfect thing for a 3 hour train journey! 18 Jun 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
These stories were as I expected from Rayne Hall; beautifully written, with excellent creation of atmosphere. The ones I liked best were: Double Rainbows, in which a man faces trouble with his calculation of high and low tides... the difference that tides can make to a landscape has always intrigued me.. I'll say no more! Then there was The Devil You Know, with its theme of domestic abuse - yes, sometimes the horror comes in human form, which is actually more frightening. This is illustrated best in Burning, which I think is the strongest of the stories. It's a tale about prejudice and people herding together to make a terrible deed seem justified. Spine chilling. I also liked Druid Stones very much; when I was reading it I could really see and feel the setting.

Very good, Ms Hall!

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly spooky 26 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a spur of the moment purchase but I'm so glad I got it. I'm no professional critic but as an avid reader I can honestly say I loved it. A couple of the stories weren't my cup of tea but that's the whole point of a collection of stories, if it's something you don't like you move on to the next one. All very different but all eerie and twisted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Goosebumps and Hitchikers... 10 April 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great selection of British Horror Stories. A few of them certainly raised goosebumps I will not look at a Hitchiker in the same light!

5.0 out of 5 stars A collection of well crafted tales 30 Mar 2013
By Bodicia
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I rather liked this little collection of spooky tales. Horror is not a genre I would normally choose to read but I do have a love of a good short story and wasn't disappointed. My favourite was "Take Me to St Roch's", a spooky tale which shows one should always think twice before picking up a hitchhiker...

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Spooky 5 Jun 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a marvellous collection of short stories in the horror genre. Not the blood and gore variety but more psychological, tapping into fears we may not know we have until the horror of them are presented here. I like the fact that each tale is different, and the twist in many of them is completely unexpected. Strong stories backed with excellent writing that really conjured up the setting each tale takes place in. I found it difficult to select a favourite but settled on Druid Stones for the twist at the end which was brilliant. I would recommend reading this.
