**Please note – the paperback version of ‘A Sinister Six’ contains and additional TWO stories***
An early review.
There are six incredible, magnificent, and horrifying stories. Yes, they truly are sinister. Not just the stories. Not just the characters. But the way the stories bring in the reader and add twists. Boseley is a master of designing these perfectly horrid stories, and brings the reader into his mind. I was intrigued when I saw the quote from Poe in the beginning of the book, and I can see why. There is a lot of “Poe”-ishness within this story. The titles of the stories just bring you in and then … the story keeps you shivering. “He could hear her voice, muffled by the pillow, which he tried to block out and failed. Her voice weakened and then was silent.”
I received this book free in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. ~Amy’s Bookshelf Reviews
