Received From: XPRESSO BOOK TOURS
Rating: 5 OUT OF 5 STARS ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
A collection of 16 short stories and 10 dark poems in the tradition of “The Twilight Zone.”
Trapped for eight centuries in a space no larger than a shoebox. What would you do to escape? How far would you go to rid yourself of that parasite in your brain that feeds off the worst of your nightmares? What if the person closest to you were fated to die – and you were powerless to stop it?
What if your savior were also your greatest fear? Would you trade years of your life for a chance at redemption? Would you slay or spare the dragon whose eyes gaze up at you pleadingly in the final moments of its life?
These are the questions that run through the mind when twilight fades and eyelids grow heavy. Fight the onset of sleep. Thrash beneath the covers in futile defiance of what lies beyond. This is the between-time of Nightmare’s Eve, those brief but lingering moments between the waking world and the abyss. It will have you. It’s only a matter of time.
The first word that comes to mind after reading this awesome collection of horror poems and stories written for Young Adults, is WOW.
Not only will you be entertained by reading this book, you will also be challenged. How could you be challenged by a work of fiction? The answer to that lies in the way the stories and poems are told.
Readers are challenged to look inside themselves and to determine what they would do if placed in the character’s shoes.
I love this type of book. I especially love it when it is written for Young Adults. It forces the reader to REALLY think about what actions they might take and what the consequences of those actions could be.
I rate NIGHTMARE’S EVE as 5 out of 5 Stars ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐.
