    1. These stories have a delightfully old-fashioned feel reminiscent of Daphne du Maurier and Shirley Jackson. Here are tales about ghosts and vanishing hitchhikers, angry birds, dangerous druids and things that go bump in the night. They would be perfect for someone looking for spooky stories that aren't too bloody or violent.Hall seems to realize that real horror lies in the suspense, the anticipation and the dread - not in a graphic and gory description of the thing that lies waiting at the end o [...]


    2. All of these stories, except for one, were stories that I had previously read in the first three of her "6 Scary Tales" series. I have to say, though, that I enjoyed this set better. It all stems from her "Dear Readers" at the beginning - and I think all short story writers who decided to put them into collections should follow her lead, explaining where they get the ideas, what and why they write them, and the stories behind the stories. It made the stories mean so much more and make so much mo [...]


    3. I love horror stories, especially those of the creepy kind. I want to be intrigued and disturbed rather than revolted. I also really appreciate good, fluent writing. Ms Rayne’s collection satisfies all these criteria. She has mastered the art of creating suspense within a short framework – not an easy discipline – and writes in a crisp, literary style that is absolutely perfect for the gothic tale. Her descriptions are a joy to read and her ability to create real, believable characters is [...]


    4. Originally published on Not NowMommy's ReadingI thoroughly enjoyed this collection of stories by Rayne Hall! The author has a gift for creating atmosphere in each and every story that lends to the whole creeping effect. An example of this would be the following snippet taken from the story 'The Devil You Know':An empty coke can rattled across the concrete, a crisp wrapper rustled along the track, and somewhere in the distance, a motor whined.The stories weren't overly scary in the blood-and-gore [...]


    5. This collection of stories by Rayne Hall certainly did not disappoint. The author's detailed descriptions and mood setting were spectacular. Great creepy stories that I would highly recommend. Looking forward to reading more of Rayne Hall's work.


    6. What. fantastic collection of very British horror stories. Subtle and creepy, and lacking in gore, as only the best horrors are. Full review to come.



    7. These stories are light horror. They are perfect for people who aren't horror fanatics and much rather atmosphere over scare. The descriptions in the books are breathtakingly beautiful and crisp. The majority of the stories share a similar format. The main character is introduced and we discover a brief background and get a very vivid description of the current location of the character. Then we're taken on a journey that sends goosebumps to the skin, but won't plague us with nightmares when the [...]


    8. REVIEWI love a good horror story and this book has 13 of good creepy stories. They are quick reads, between 5-20 pages each. At the beginning of the book the author tells how she gets her ideas. I enjoyed this a lot. She spends a lot of time and heart into her writings. She says in the front of the book that she doesn't find ideas, they find her, I liked that. My favorite part was where she spent a night in a cemetery to get the feel for her writings.The author did a wonderful job of describing [...]


    9. Overall, I enjoyed these stories. Some more than others but each one worth taking a look at. Each story is about 5-20 pages long so they are quick to read. These stories vary from creepy ghost stories, vengeful people and more. My favorites included 'Take me to St Roch's,' and 'Druid Stones.' But there were many others I liked as well. Seagulls reminded me a bit of the old horror story, 'The Birds' by Daphne du Maurier. One thing the author did that I found nice, was that at the beginning, she t [...]


    10. This book contains 13 "Horror" stories. I have to say I laughed during them and found them fun to read. They weren't scary in the least, creepy I suppose would be a better word to describe them with. Just to test that out, I put them in my kindle to play at night while lying in bed and I still found them enjoyable but not scary.I think these stories can be read and enjoyed by any age. My son is 10, and he really enjoyed me reading the story "Take Me To St. Roch's", so if you have a pre-teen this [...]


    11. These stories were as I expected from Rayne Hall; beautifully written, with excellent creation of atmosphere. The ones I liked best were: Double Rainbows, in which a man faces trouble with his calculation of high and low tides the difference that tides can make to a landscape has always intrigued me I'll say no more! Then there was The Devil You Know, with its theme of domestic abuse - yes, sometimes the horror comes in human form, which is actually more frightening. This is illustrated best in [...]


    12. This collection of short stories is definitely along the lines of the stories I used to read when I was younger, similar to the Max Haines collections that I love. It took me about a week to read this book because each story is short and I could read one or two right before bed. They are very creepy stories, without being horrific or too scary. They stay in your brain long after you have read them!I would definitely read more of Rayne Hall's books, they are worthwhile if you are looking for some [...]


    13. Got this for free while it was free on amazon and then had coincidentally signed up for a Read to Review thing. These were 13 short, creepy tales that would be PERFECT for sharing around a campfire. I thought the first few stories were creepier than the rest, especially the very first St. Roch story and the seagull story.I can easily imagine re-telling these stories at night, trying to unsettle your friends and family as you try to top one another's ghost stories. Fun and definitely worth buying [...]


    14. Some of these stories are very compelling. The author does a fine job in luring the reader in and, at least in my case, creeping him out. The 4 star rating is solely because not all of the stories are of the same caliber. While all are well edited and convey a sense of eeriness and historical interest( it may being that I'm from America and having never set foot in England) some stories just didn't have that "creep" factor that the initial story "Take me to St. Roch's" provided - but at least 4 [...]


    15. I rather liked this little collection of spooky tales. Horror is not a genre I would normally choose to read but I do have a love of a good short story and wasn't disappointed. My favourite was "Take Me to St Roch's", a spooky tale which shows one should always think twice before picking up a hitchhiker


    16. Just in time for Halloween! This collection of short stories was masterfully written. The author has incredible insight into what spooks, creeps, and thrills, with a true talent for setting the atmosphere.In this book, she has included illustrations to go with each story, black and white and brilliantly fitting the mood. You can also find these stories in "Thirty Scary Tales" by Rayne Hall.


    17. An interesting collection of 13 imaginative stories. Some were complete stories with a fitting ending, others felt more like a fragment of larger stories. All were worth a read. I wasn't that comfortable with the ones that relied on women's vulnerability against men's violence to produce the scares. Good to find another contemporary female horror writer all the same.


    18. From the moment I started 13 British Horror Stories with Take Me to St. Rochs, I just knew this short collection was going to be interesting. As I continued on I was proven right and now I want to read more of this author's writing.


    19. A nice little collection of stories I enjoyed. Some were quite classic in structure and I still enjoyed. I think I'll eventually wander through some of his other collections if they are at least this good.


    20. I thoroughly enjoyed this collection of creepy horror stories. I read them all on a dreary afternoon perfect for some light reading! I found the stories well written and many humorous. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes scary stories that are not too scary.
