My Rating: 4/5
Featuring ten original short stories, Shivers in the Night is the first anthology written by Yukon Writers’ Society members. Each original story embraces the art of suspense and terror with a knack for heart-pounding endings.
In Spinner’s Tale, brace yourself for a tangled web of horror. While diving into A Pretty Facade, don’t be fooled by Maria’s perfect life. There’s more than just science at play in the Texas body farm in The Rotting. Old photographs and an odd cat lead Janie to a house with a hair-raising secret. And Mr. Sweaters’s Gift isn’t a gift at all.
Shivers in the Night sends you to the darkest corners of your mind and keeps you awake well into the night.

This was an entertaining and quick read. As with all anthologies, I enjoyed some of the stories more than others. Overall, a nice collection, and a good read for fans of horror.
I received a free digital copy of this book from one of the authors, Shayla Raquel, in exchange for an honest review.
