Behind Dark Doors (one) is the first of a set of books by Susan May that contain short horror stories. This first book contains the six stories:
Do Us Part
I Hate Emma Carter
It’s In The Genes
The War Veteran
Each story starts with a brief description before the read then after the story is over you have a few words from Susan about how the story came about in her mind, what she was thinking and what made her write that particular story. I really enjoyed reading her thoughts afterwords and how these came about after each story, it seemed a nice little added personal touch.
For me each individual story rated somewhere between three and five stars which is really a rather great thing since I’m not a huge fan of short stories overall. Usually I find myself really wanting more even when books get into novella length they sometimes leave me with that feeling of not getting enough but Susan found a way to make her characters and stories just pop out and feel like I’d read more than I had, definitely enjoy her writing style and the overall creepy/weirdness that she comes up with in these reads.
Overall, a nice collection of twisted tales for the horror fans.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
