Original and genuinely disturbing anthology. Mr. Malmborg has a talent for taking what at first seems a familiar story, then sending it in a completely unexpected direction. My personal favourite is The Bone Yard, but then I'm a dog-lover :)

Very highly recommended.

Review by: JENNIFER THOMAS on Dec. 16, 2012 :
True to it's cover this book does indeed give you 10 dark tales but what the cover does not tell you that each of the tales also hold it's own level of emotion and loss. William Malmborg does a wonderful job of pulling you straight into all of his writings and this one is no different.
The first story, Redstone Lake, you are drawn into a world where hidden memories have emerged and Tim is forced to face something he has long forgotten. The terrifying past is determined to make him face what he has forgotten.
Now with a beginning like that you know that each story that follows has to be fantastic!!
I think the story that disturbed me most in this book was Sunburn. The things that went through the fathers mind in this story not only showed that he was insane from the loss of his wife but it also shows how horrific things can be once the human mind breaks.
This is a great read if you are looking for a new horror author to enjoy or if you are looking for a few short stories to pass a bit of time.
But I must warn you, since the first book I have read by this author I have been hooked. His writing has a way of getting in your head and you must have more.
