My Review

Whispers from the Dead of Night is a collection of seven stories that are all dark, with horror/supernatural/paranormal elements. The stories include:

A Deathly Shade of Pale
Prisoner
The Wanderer
I Killed Dorian
Bluebell
'Twas the Night Before Christmas
Run

There is at least one story for all to enjoy within this collection. As a fan of short horror stories, I found myself intrigued by this collection. While a couple of stories weren't quite as good (in my opinion) as others, they still brought something to the table and were worth the read overall.
The writing is strong and concise, and while the collection itself is a relatively quick read, the pacing didn't falter within any of the stories. 
There are moments where you'll be surprised and/or shocked within these pages, what with the mystery and suspense some of these stories bring along with them. I found myself saying what?! a few times while reading.
Overall, not a bad collection of stories. If you're looking for something dark and quick, give Whispers from the Dead of Night a whirl.
3.5 stars.
