Eight chilling tales to read under the Cold Moon.
A tinker’s son acquires a cursed soul.
A dying woman is haunted by her own reflection.
An uninvited presence haunts a Christmas seance.
A festive holiday turns macabre.
Despite the twinkling lights and steaming cocoa, the end of the year is the darkest time of the year—a season of short days, long nights, and cold skies. In this special anniversary anthology, the authors of Black Spot Books mix Ye Olde Yuletide hauntings with modern-day holiday horrors to weave a chilling new collection of dark winter tales. From frozen forests stalked by eerie Christmas ghosts to rotting gifts of winter malice, the spirits of Christmas come home for the holidays in the Dead of Winter.
Praise for Dead of Winter
I feel like I was robbed of my winter this year with how hot it has been, so I’m taking it back with some spooky stories. I mean, if I’m not feeling chilled from the weather I might as well feel some chills from what I’m reading. And it has been far too long since I read an anthology of stories, so honestly this book was just long overdue.
This collection of stories was just so good. I wanted to say it was better than expected, but I nearly always fall in love with anthologies, so I went into this with high expectations that were most definitely met and then some. So it was a complete success in blowing me away! Plus I’ve just been in the mood for horror and spooky and all around creepy, so this was the perfect read to fill some of those cravings. And I loved how all of the stories had a similar premise but they all delivered something new and different.
Dead of Winter is an amazing collection of stories that all come together to make something unique and special. And because it is an anthology it is an extremely quick read for all of my binge readers out there as well as one you could take your time with and never lose track of what you’ve read. So, I mean this one is an all around win!
