embrace-the-darkness-book-reviewThis book is a collection of short stories. It’s the first piece I have read by this author and it has greatly surprised me. The stories are short but very disturbing, those spine-chilling kind of… each one in a very different way.

Broken minds, impossible nightmares, surrealist situations and, what I liked best, fair and not so fair fates for the characters. Novis happily dances on top of the grave of “The goody wins, the baddy is defeated” typical stamp, carving out his signature: “Do you think you know how this is ending? Hold my beer.”

The author owns such a marvelous imagination, every plot is complex and his way of making it fit in a tiny tale is… well, astonishing. He could perfectly build up an entire novel from every one of them. I personally felt sad when I turned the last page, because I really enjoyed this book. In fact, I have already purchased another one by him, “Tunnels”, so I can go on.

I sincerely recommend this book to psychological horror fans, here, you have great nightmare material to steal your sleep for several nights. What more could you ask for, as a horror reader?
