Day 3 of the Game of Crones mini blog tour and I’m delighted to report that the compliments keep coming.
Five glowing reviews. Yeah!
Donnasbookblog commented: “I love the author’s ability to bring his stories to life and he creates some fantastic characters. I love being able to pick up the book between different tasks – and enjoy that he crams in such a lot in a short space and they are so well developed too!
“It is five stars from me for this one. It’s definitely one that I will highly recommending. Can’t wait to see what he releases next!”
Bookshine and Readbows wrote: “I particularly enjoyed the shivers I got from ‘Clutching at Straws’ and ‘Suggestion of Evil’ which cleverly channel the reader’s own imagination against them to highlight and magnify the horror presented.
“Fans of short, dark, frisson-inducing tales of haggard crones and sly sirens will enjoy this varied collection of wicked witchery and twisted folk stories.”
Jessica Belmont added her kind thoughts with: “I love short story compilations like this, particularly in the horror genre. Game of Crones is definitely a 5 star read for me.
“Jay Raven’s ability to world build, character build, pull the reader in and keep them invested such a short stories is a true testament to his writing abilities. I loved the twists and turns, the thrills and the fact that each story was unique.”
While Red’s Midnight Reviews added: “I was a little bit dubious as to whether or not I would enjoy this collection of short tales as I find short stories sometimes don’t have the same effect but Jay Raven proves with Game of Crones that you don’t need a full length novel to pack a punch.
“Each story has a different subject and weaves its own twists and turn and the end of each story is guaranteed to leave the reader speechless. I honestly could not get enough!!
“Jay Raven is a unique storyteller with an amazing talent that draws you into his fun, macabre stories.”
And Just Books ended with: “The stories are all dark and have a twist, but are all completely different. Unusually, for short stories, the author pulled me into each one with his writing style and the brilliant characters.
“A great book for dipping into with a cuppa… or for reading in one sitting, as I did!”
WOW! I can’t thank you guys enough. I’m blushing from ear to ear!
