Book Review: Ominous Tales by Blake Everstone
Blake Everstone's debut novel, Ominous Tales, is an interesting and creepy collection of short stories and poetry that will certainly unnerve you. The stories are each separate but a creepy theme ties each one together into a macabre tapestry of the unsettling.
The opening story had good legs on it and could have been drawn out further into a standalone novella. While there is room for Everstone to grow and hone her craft, this collection showcases some very strong skills, and I look forward to seeing what she creates next.
This book is an engrossing way to while away the afternoon but I recommend keeping the lights on while you do - just in case!
