Comments: A collection of twenty stories with a chilling theme throughout. Some stories fall into the 'cozy chiller' category, such as the romantic "Our Dance" or the melancholy, "Homecoming". Others, have a sharper edge to them and horrific elements of death and gore. A few are downright spooky. One is there, obviously, for sheer tongue-in-cheek fun. The titles alone are intriguing: Dancing in the Moonlight, Night Lights, Erebus, When Shadows Move, It Came One Night, Runestone, The Fungus, When I'm Stronger, and The Bones of Summer...
Recommend it for older teens to adult readers with a taste for short stories, suspense, paranormal and the macabre. Good high interest title to motivate readers.
Of note are the endorsements on the cover :
" Marilyn uses a darkly poetic writing style to create atmospheric, character driven stories. The result: chills and a need to read the next." Keith Pyeatt, author of Struck and Dark Knowledge.
"[She] has a way of captivating your senses and making you feel the emotions of her characters. The BONES OF SUMMER demands your attention and leaves you wanting more." Terri French White, author of Tulsa's Haunted Memories.
