I really enjoyed this story: the unique plot & easy-going writing style made it a relaxing read. I liked the way the characters each told their tale in turn, and how they each gave up a little more information to give the whole picture of events. Minor complaints, which stopped this being 5/5 were the errors in dialogue during the Cindy & Melissa tale, and the rather too abrupt ending. The ending was just so sudden, and did frustrate. Overall though, a great read & I'd recommend it.

Oh I so enjoyed reading this book. It's like a throw back to old anthology horror movies like "Tales of Terror" (1962) and "Dr Terror's House of Horros" (1965), where you have a number of characters all conected telling their own personal stories of horror. In this case it is the staff of "Raven & Skull" who have had a very bad week and have decided to go out for an end of the week drink.

It is the bar where they each tell their tale...

And I will not spoil it. Ashley Lister has a writing style that captures the tension and quirkiness, yet is full of dark humour. Some of his descriptions will make you smile which can, at times, give you a fulse sense of security.

I have thoughly enjoyed reading it. If you like your horror with a sense of intrigue, writen buy someone who obviously loved what they were doing, then pick up a copy of this, you'll be thoroughly entertained.

I had to wait a while to receive the book - presumably it was in demand when first published - so have only recently had the opportunity to read it. Now I've finished it following some late night reading sessions. Guess what? It's good. "Proper good."

It didn't scare me; perhaps that's just my nature. But I wasn't looking for that - I read books to be entertained and enjoy a good yarn. This one is.

Before reading it, I was sort of aware it was a collection of tales from a group of work colleagues. I didn't expect the tales to be interwoven - bringing more depth and cohesion to the stories. Clever.

The characters? Realistic. Often unpleasant, but you still want to find out their fates. The author has a twisted sense of humour which is echoed in some of the descriptive passages.

I thought the ending was slightly abrupt, but perhaps that is because I wanted to read more. I wasn't sure what to expect - I've never really been attracted towards horror books (the last one I read was "Carrie" in the early 80s - that wasn't bad and I think the author did quite well...) so I'm now asking myself, "Is Ashley's book typical of the genre?"

I don't know. I do know that if you haven't bought it and read it, you should. I look forward to the next one.

This book is that good it somehow made me feel like a teenager again! It would lend itself beautifully to the legendary Hammer House of Horror films I loved to watch from behind the sofa in my youth. The twisted tales of the employees at Raven and Skull are rich with the devilishly deviant humour of the author. At times I found myself struggling to suppress a Dick Dastardly style snigger at the turn of events. It's a thoroughly entertaining collection of stories, with expertly drawn characters. It is fiendishly funny, eerily erotic and monstrously macabre...and I loved it. More please 😉

Being a wuss when it comes to the horror genre, I was sceptical about whether I would enjoy this book. I couldn't have been more wrong. I was hooked from the first page, and found myself addicted to each character and their story. There was the perfect amount of dark, suspenseful horror which kept me interested and on the edge of my seat until the very last page. Fantastic.

A perfect purchase for Halloween.
I very much enjoy stories and characters that are interwoven. Excellent description throughout and well balanced with appropriate dark humour. Turn the lights off, settle down and get spooked.

Absolutely loved this book! The stories were gripping, the characters entertaining and witty and I couldn't put it down. Some of the tales are a little dark, so it's the perfect book for those who enjoy being spooked.
