To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I know it's not Easter but I find myself reading. Or thinking about horror on any day. So I read a book of horror with Easter as the theme. Usually I love Easter cute Bunnies and chicks. The animals not girl's. Lol. This book has left me bewildered now as I read the scary offerings. I felt a slight shivering creep up on me. Killer Bunnies and other Easter goodies running amock. Still I really enjoyed this book and it didn't put me off Easter yet.
A great horror anthology with a wide variety of interpretations of the Easter theme. Some stories just happen to play at Easter time, others take it a step further with weird easter eggs or creepy bunnies.
Over 20 stories await the eager reader, and while I found one or two foul eggs in the basket, the majority were a sweet treat. Usually, I rate every story in an anthology, but I didn't take notes along the way, so I would have trouble recalling the details of each and every piece here.
While I recognized a couple of authors' names, my three favorite picks are from writers I haven't heard of before: 'Easter Eggs' by Latashia Figueroa, 'Hatch' by Christina Bergling and 'Sulphur' by Mark Fleming. Special mention: 'Baby Blues' by Briana Robertson for most depressing story, and 'An Easter Prayer' by Weston Kincade & David Chrisley for most original (and cuddly) story.
As a contributor to this collection, My review only covers the stories that are not mine. Much like Collected Christmas Horror Shorts, I enjoyed the variety and uniqueness brought by each author. It is fascinating to see all the different ways a holiday can be turned to horror. There is some brilliance, some terror, and also some mundane in the pages, but the collection achieves a good balance.
