This book contains 10 short stories. They range from ghosts, werewolves, vampires, zombies and paranormal elements. I enjoyed them for the most part. A couple of them seemed to end rather abruptly. A lot of them have twists in them which I have always liked about this author is the twists and surprises in her stories. My favorite was probably "They All Come Out at Dark" which has a vampire and a human who are hunting each other as a regular part of their routine. Overall a quick read that I enjoyed.
I received this ebook free through LibraryThing member giveaways. No review was requested but I still wanted to post my honest review.

These stories were short and funny. I enjoyed the first one the most, a ghost hunt in the middle of the night.
I like how most of the stories included the undead as the characters but you didn't find out until the end.
