    I find this excellenet collection of horror stories really surprised me, it was alot better then i expected scary wise and I would really recomend it to enyone who enjoys horror stories. The lenght of each story was great for my part as i often read on my commute to work of almost always finnished a story right before I got there, as a person who hates to leave off in the middle this was great.

    This is a 3.5 star read. An eclectic mix of short stories of the weird, eerie and, at times, horrifying persuasion, all with a theme of forests/nature. As is common with such a collection it was a little uneven in quality and, even as a connoisseur of short stories, I found the book too long and wieldy. It could quite easily be divided into two volumes making it a far easier readable anthology. There were SO many stories but my favourite's were: World's Oldest Tree Crosses In The Field Scarecrow Rain T This is a 3.5 star read.

I received a free ecopy of this novel directly from the author. I have voluntarily chosen to review the book and the gifting in no way influences my review/ rating, which reflects my honest opinion.

    Excellent selection of horror stories. Some very scary and others mild. Didn’t take me long to read, had me gripped to the very end.

    It was a decent horror read. Most of the stories were connected to the forest or at the very least, some form of wilderness. Some were truly nightmarish, but there were a few that were actually quite tame and even a few that didn't make a whole lot of sense. It was a decent horror read.

I liked how long it was, and how most of the stories managed to vary despite a common topic that can be hard to make your own. I'll start my review with the positive aspects and the stories I liked: The first one I truly liked was "I Remember Fireflies" by JP Carver. This was a good slow burn horror that gives you the heebie-jeebies more than the OMGs, if that makes sense. I liked the narrator's point of view, and how the narrator may be choosing not to remember what happened to her best friend, despite it being clear enough that she probably killed him. The next one I liked was "Project Erebus" by J. Speziale. This is a very straight forward type of horror that lets your know from the get go that it's going to be scary, and I loved the detail in how the monster takes pieces of it's victims. Specifically, the quote "It wasn't the shot that frightened me the most, or the explosion of gore that painted the walls behind him. What horrified me the most was the massive, jet black, three fingered hand that pulled Walsh's lifeless corpse back into the cave, just before the blast door was slammed shut. I will never forget the sound of his tearing flesh." Eek! One of my favorites out of the entire collection, which is saying something because this is a bigger collection, is "Sister", again by J. Speziale. I love it when I'm genuinely surprised by the ending of a story, because it's hard for me to be surprised by story endings anymore since I read so much. I can usually pick up pretty early what's happening. The fact that 1) I didn't know it was the narrator's sister that was the woman covered in black rot, and 2) I had no idea the Uncle was the one who had taken her and killed her. That's such a common trope, but it was executed very well. My other favorite was "The Little Man" by Gemma Amor. I heard this the first time on The Nosleep Podcast, narrated by Erika Sanderson, and holy moly I forgot how much I loved this story until I re-read it here. Ellie telling the story makes me feel like I could memorize the story and tell it to scare people who even haven't read this book. I love the writing, the plot is relatively simple and still spooky, and Ellie feels like a relatable and reliable narrator, despite the murder. 11/10. A couple of other good mentions were "What Lurks in Nightfall Forest" by Tara A. Devlin (aaaaaaaaaaaaaa nope. Doppelgangers freak me out!) and "Bottomless Pit" by Blair Daniels (again, aaaaaaaaaa factor for MISSING EYES). Now...for the not so great parts. The book itself was a little slow to get into, and I almost stopped because I was losing hope that there were good stories there. Luckily my opinion turned around later. The first story, "Bill Owens III" by David Clark, was very slow building and I honestly didn't finish this one because it was too slow for me to get into. The next one I didn't really like was "Isolation Cabin" by H.G. Gravy. This one felt...a little pointless to me? Maybe it's just not my cup of tea, but the idea of a person being haunted by things that aren't their fault feels overdone to me, and in order for me to like it, I need to be surprised or horrified, and I wasn't either. The next one is more of a "WTF?" and it's only a quote. What on earth does "Like a needle in an elephant" mean, Tobias?! ("World's Oldest Tree" by Tobias Wade). The last one I didn't like was "California Dreaming" by J.D. McGregor. I didn't like the narrator at all. I didn't know if that was the point, or if I just didn't connect with the narrator like the author intended. I generally didn't like the story, because it seemed kind of obvious that the people who gave them the water had something shady up their sleeves. Never take water from strangers in the middle of the desert. On top of everything, I took issue with the fact that he let his girlfriend die. If he was so in love with her, and wanted to fight to save her, and had her in his grasp, why did he just swim away and blame it on his natural instincts? It didn't make sense to me. If my partner was in danger, I would die trying to save them. Overall, I liked the book and would read it again if I was in the mood to read certain stories again. I would recommend it to friends who like horror anthologies, but honestly I would just write a list of my favorites and let them read the others if they want.

    I received an advanced reader digital copy from the author's website for an honest review Like with all anthologies there will always be stronger stories and weak stories. I found myself really kind of wondering when I was going to get to the end of the book at one point because a lot of the stories just seemed to drag on even though they were fairly short.

I found myself really kind of wondering when I was going to get to the end of the book at one point because a lot of the stories just seemed to drag on even though they were fairly short. The overall theme of the book was stories dealing with the woods or the unknown. The forest, like the ocean, has always held a fascination with what could be hiding between the trees or could be stalking us while we sleep soundly in our tents. Which is and can be a fun topic and idea to explore. In this anthology, however, I felt like it was just dragging on. While each story was unique and had interesting twists and turns, I felt like there were only maybe three to four stories really worth it in this book. There are 44 different stories in this book and I can only recall those three or four that I enjoyed and remembered. It might be that all of them while exploring the same topic of the woods or the unknown, were so varying that it didn't hold my attention or kept me as interested as I could have been. Some stories too were a little unnecessarily gory. While I am perfectly fine with gore in my horror both visual and read when it just goes on and on describing every little detail it loses me. While I love exploring new authors this way, this one was a little bit of a miss for me. 2.5 Stars

    These were generally fun, but hit-or-miss. Some of the stories really needed an editor. The very last one in the book, Lucie and Snaggletooth, was probably my favorite. You could feel what was coming, but still a pretty shocking tale.

MY REVIEW: I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. This collection includes stories by the following authors: David Clark, H.G. Gravy, Tobias Wade, JP Carver, Patrick McGrail, JD McGregor, J. Speziale, Tara A. Devlin, Blair Daniels, Gemma Amor, Grant Hilton, Kyle Harrison, P. Oxford, Jazzmin Moysey-Forrestall, Kelly Childress, Alanna Roberston-Webb, Candice Azalea Greene, AJ Horvath, Dustin Chisam, Adrian J. Johnson, Nick Botic, and William Stuart. This collection was a 3.5 for me. I enjoyed most of the stories, but there were too many mistakes in the manuscript for me to overlook. There were tense problems, grammar errors, and even some misspellings/inconsistencies with character names. Perhaps these things are improved in a newer version, but they bothered me enough for this book to not quite make a 5-star rating. The stories themselves contain a good mixture of themes, more than enough to keep the reader satisfied. I’d heard of several of the authors in this collection before, and none of them disappointed me. I’m confident that if you’re a fan of horror, you’ll find something to enjoy in this collection. I wish I saw more of these themed collections. I really liked the concept of a collection of creepy stories about the forest. The forest is, in itself, a scary place under the wrong circumstances just as these stories show. Some of them are fantastical and others more realistic. They certainly make you question whether or not to take that summer camping trip!

    While I don't think you're likely to find a story in here that will give you nightmares, there's some wonderful stuff in this compilation: gorgeous descriptive writing, and some concepts that are pretty unsettling.

    aHorror Stories From the Forest Unfortunately, I read this entire book hoping for a really good juicy horror story that would keep me awake at night, hiding under the covers, afraid to turn off the light, afraid to let any of my append- ages hang off the bed for fear of some unknown monster grabbing them, and hoping for the story that would stick with me and I might want to retell later. Sadly, I found none of these., just mediocre stories mostly about people camping or getting scared or attacked. aHorror Stories From the Forest Unfortunately, I read this entire book hoping for a really good juicy horror story that would keep me awake at night, hiding under the covers, afraid to turn off the light, afraid to let any of my append- ages hang off the bed for fear of some unknown monster grabbing them, and hoping for the story that would stick with me and I might want to retell later.

    Quite a treat A generous collection of horror stories. Some stories could pass for psychological thrillers. The storylines were unique and enjoyable. Incorporating mythology, the supernatural and plain old insanity. I recommend this book to horror fans looking for something different with a little twist to it. Available on kindle unlimited, I hope they have more books like this one.

    I really don't know what to say; some of the stories were great, but it was like finding pearls in gravel. I think I might have expected too much of the "concept". Still I give it 3 stars because when it's good, it's really damn good. Also there are many stories, so you get something for your money. =) I really don't know what to say; some of the stories were great, but it was like finding pearls in gravel.

    A great collection of short stories by various authors. It's interesting to see how diverse these stories are, yet all with the underlying Forest theme. Some of the stories: Scarecrow; Don't Stop on Route 33; The Wall in Grandpa's Backyard; Camp Credence; The Last Bus; The Devil's Cauldron; Seeker and Lucie & Snaggletooth, this reader found especially disturbing.

    This was a freebie Kindle book. I'm interested in stories that explore how forests and woods can affect us. Most of these pieces were little vignettes, like stories told over a campfire, rather than complete stories. That means they were good for dipping into whenever you needed to read something undemanding. Most of the horror is on the level of "and she got out and there was a HOOK handing from her door handle!!!!!!11!!1!" variety. But that's not necessarily bad. Some are genuinely creepy.

    An amateurish collection of forest-themed horror in dire need of a copy editor. This endless juvenile slog was only redeemed by work from Gemma Amor and William Stuart.
