What a creepy read. A book of short stories of 84 pages, but each raised my hackles. I was sure reading it around the bewitched hour didn’t really help me maintain my calm.

The book had many stories, very true to the author’s indegenous roots. But these were pure horror. Some shocked me, some startled me with the last line. And others downright scared me.

Then there was one which brought out my secret horror – monster under the bed. The story IMITATE caused goosebumps to appear, and the ending line, even though I expected it, still managed to cause my soul to shiver.

I loved how the author added a personal note at the end which gave me a window into how his brain worked and where he got the inspiration for his stories.

My niggles too popped up, I longed for more horror to be seeped into his words. The story had a shocking value, but the eerie atmosphere was missing. But being short stories, it might have been difficult to create such a dark ambiance.

Overall, it was a fun read, creepy and shocking.


Rating: 4 out of 5.





Welcome to Anoka, Minnesota, a small city just outside of the Twin Cities dubbed “The Halloween Capital of the World” since 1937. Here before you lie several tales involving bone collectors, pagan witches, werewolves, skeletal bison, and cloned children. It is up to you to decipher between fact and fiction as the author has woven historical facts into his narratives. With his debut horror collection, Cheyenne & Arapaho author Shane Hawk explores themes of family, grief, loneliness, and identity through the lens of indigenous life


Publication Date: October 2020

I downloaded the digital version of the book from Kindle Unlimited, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
