Review: Playing with Fire

Playing with Fire
Playing with Fire by Coral Russell

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Please Note: I have heard the latest edition of this book does not have all these stories. My review, done in March of 2012, is of the original, multi-author edition. It is my understanding that the latest edition includes only Coral Russell's stories. So please be aware of that when reading this review.

My Thoughts: Susan Evelyn - Best Served – a tale of revenge – justice or vengeance?
Robynn Gabel - Widows of the Night – will give you a whole new impression of spiders!
Nomar KnightBitten – a sort of zombish tale
CAV Laster - Playing with Fire – science fiction becomes science fact and the world changes irrevocably, thanks to scientists going too far.
Coral Russell - Devil of a Ghost Tour – see my review on the book’s page on Goodreads here.
Coral Russell - Key to a Haunting – see my review on the book’s page on Goodreads here.
Coral Russell - Amador Lockdown (excerpt) – ghosthunters get more than they bargained for; an awesome tale! And I don’t just say that because I edited the final edition, either!
Brian Fatah SteeleFlawed – a house that brings the inhabitants a personalized madness – wonderful!!
Brian Fatah Steele - The Stuff Dreams Aren’t Made Of Dark, wonderful; dreams aren't what they are supposed to be ...
Chryse Wymer - This Dark Magic – a reporter gets mixed up with dark magic from a most unusual source – a wonderfully quirky twist to the end!
Chryse Wymer - Living with Murder (excerpt) – an interesting start to a story, set in the future, where technology allows you access to the memories of those lost, and a father seeks answers in the loss of his son.

Some really great stories here – fans of horror and dark suspense, ghost stories and the macabre should all find something to love.

Disclosure: I received a free copy of this ebook in exchange for an honest review.

Synopsis from Goodreads: Scare easily? Are you often frightened out of your sleep? Does the mere mention of ghosts prickle your skin? 

These seven authors' imaginations are fired up by the scariness of the unknown.  Find a comfy spot, sit back and enjoy nine tales to tickle your taste for terror:
