Having read 13 I knew that I had to get this and pre-ordered it so it arrived on my kindle today. Knowing all the authors I knew that I would be in for a great read and I was not disappointed.

Caved in by Jackie Sonnenberg: When Fay wanted to protect her unborn baby, she knew that she needed to talk to the witch that lived in the cave. As I began this story I thought I knew what was going to happen but I was completely wrong. How the author came up with this idea of saving the baby is beyond me and I loved the graphic bloody ending.

Grave Beginnings by Sara Schoen: Three friends, an abandoned prison and a Ouija board, what could go wrong. It was a pleasant change to read a story that was not set in an asylum. Set in a prison added to the suspense and you are aware that the people who had dies there had all been convicted of evil crimes, so when a Ouija board was added you knew that something evil would emerge. This story was full of suspense and kept you guessing to the end.

Myopia by Samie Sands: Mia was blind, due to her disability, she did not make friends easy. Whilst her mom was called into work due to a medical emergency, Mia has to fend for herself and tries to learn what has happened. Only hearing what was going on in the town made it hard for Mia to grasp how serious the situation was. Whilst it would be worrying be left alone, losing one of your senses makes it even more scary and you can understand all of Mia’s emotions. The ending made me want to know more about her survival and I felt really sorry for her as yet again she was classed as a burden. The only good thing was she could not see the devastation happening, although I am sure her imagination made it worse.

Room 249 by Thomas S Flower: The story follows Andy as he goes on a crime and killing spree and ends up in a motel in room 249. Andy is the type of criminal that blames everyone else for his mistakes, and even when he was killing he always justified his actions. When he gets to the motel he does not suspect anything is wrong with the place and the author has a talent of concealing the horror that is soon to happen. When it happened; I was in shock as never in my wildest dreams did I imagine the creature that was lurking in room 249.

Sacrifice by Luke Swanson: Detective Flynn is renowned for investigating the evil of cases. Roger has retired to LA, but when a murdered child is found their meeting is not what was expected. The start of the story is an introduction to Roger, but after the child is found the story changes to Flynn’s investigation and you had the sense that Flynn as at breaking point. The author tied up the investigation neatly and I would enjoy to read more about Detective Flynn.

See you on the Flip Side by Carissa Ann Lynch: If you have read 13 then you will recognise the place where this story is set. Going back to Adventure Town we follow Donna as she goes on a camping trip with her boyfriend and family. The author has a way of playing on your fears and if you have a phobia of bugs then this story will definitely make you skin crawl. I loved the twist at the end when you think Donna has lost her mind and I could see a series about Adventure town.

Sinister by Taylor Henderson:  This story is a build up to a killer’s first murder. The story is about Karen, her neighbours Nate and Natalie and her best friend Marty. There are hints in this story that there is a potential serial killer when animals go missing and whilst Karen has her suspicions it is not till the end that we get to know who the murderer is.

Six Lie Broken by Brandon Nave: A group of men abducting a teenager, Savannah rescuing a young boy and with her best friend Vanessa throwing a party called the Harvest. This story had graphic scenes throughout and when you find the identity of the victims you do not have any sympathy for them. A unique story and I have learnt a new use for a hot spoon.

The Bad Man by Marissa Farrar: Sophie lived in a tunnel with 4 other children after being captured by the bad man. Why are they down there and who is scratching in the dark? Whilst reading this story you don’t know if the bad man is actually bad or if he saved the children. However; these children were living in squalor and would the outside world be better for them. The further you read the scratching noises are explained and the ending left me wanting to know more.

The Inheritance by DA Roach: Niki has just inherited a factory from her dad, believing it to be a curse, he did not want anything to do with it. This story follows Niki and her friends whilst they investigate the building. The story is full of suspense and has the feel that you are following the group as they go around the factory. The twist in the story involving Rya a demon who collects souls adds to this.

Under Mama’s Roof by Elizabeth Roderick: Tara had always had a mother ruling her life, but when she died she thought it was over. When things start happening around her home Tara suspected it was the ghost of her mother, but she did not expect it to get so out of control. A good ghost story with added twist.

Wicked Intentions by Sophia Valentine: April is due to give birth and without a job and a home, she turns to the father of her baby to help. But is he after her baby? Whilst I was reading this story I was on April’s side as the author wants you to believe that she is in danger. The story builds to a dramatic climax and you are left wandering who the real victim was.

Widow’s Prey by Erin Lee: There has always been something wrong with Tendra. She has never cried and has never showed emotion. Whilst you have an idea of what type of child she is, it is not until she is in college and gets her claws into Colby that you find out exactly what she is like. Tendra is one evil girl, only thinks of herself and what she wants she gets. This story reminds of a cat playing with its prey wearing them down until the killer blow, and the ending of the story is one of the most evil scenes that I have read in a while.

Another great anthology from Limitless.
