    An awesome anthology that gets under your skin

    This anthology clearly is an anthology. Still, the writers did a very good job in consistency. The details of the characters that came up in more than one story all fit together, and all stories together do not build, but grow the complete picture of Graves Grove and it's sycamore tree. I am glad that I could enjoy the view and spookyness of this little Canadian town. It seems that I, unlike many, was able to leave. At least, let's first find out if I can get it out of my head too. Perhaps I'm mentally as stuck in Graves Grove now as the inhabitants are physically.

    Spooky short stories, very enjoyable

    The Whispered Tales of Graves Grove is a perfect anthology for the Halloween season, or really any time of the year. This was a great read for right before bed. I could finish one story if I was tired, or read a few more if I wasn’t ready to close my eyes yet. Each story was unique and had a sense of dread or horror, but still tied in perfectly with the rest of the stories. The way the editors, J.S. Bailey and Kelsey Keating were able to pull together all the stories from all the different authors into a cohesive story is amazing. There are some central characters, including the sycamore tree, that flow throughout the entire book. As well as some characters that you only read about once. This worked well, except for one story involving the vampires. It left me hanging and there wasn’t a conclusion to it in the book. Not that every story needs a conclusion, but this was so wide open that it needed something more, or perhaps to be taken out of the anthology. While a lot of the stories are eerie, there are some funny ones. The reason behind the bronze statue’s clothes changing daily was amusing. And when you find out more about, Cooper, the dog that belongs to everyone and no one, there is a heroic twist that gives you a bit of hope for the village of Graves Grove. Graves Grove would be a place that I would enjoy visiting, but with some Holy Water, a machete, a gun, a stake, silver bullets, and a platoon of Marines.
