Pinky's Rating (out of 5): 4.5 dragonflies

Darkness Apart is an anthology of 8 stories ranging from a demon pregnancy to a possessed church. Each story is a little piece of something you aren't sure exists, but worry that does. You never know what is out there. 

It might be out there. 

In the... darkness apart.

Thoughts of Hell is an anthology of 7 new stories and the original version of Shower Time from the first anthology Darkness Apart. These stories range from the monsters under your bed to the monsters who live next door. Each story is a little piece of something you aren’t sure exists, but worry that it just might be out there or is it all in our heads. 

It’s probably just in your head. 

In…. Thoughts of Hell 

From the very first page, readers will be able to tell that the mind of Jason Mueller is a very dark place indeed.

Each of these anthologies is a series of short stories with a truly horrifying theme. If you have nightmares about things that go bump in the night, then these two books are not for you !

There are no ghosts or goblins in these stories, they go way deeper into your subconscious and tug at thoughts that you have hidden in the dark recesses of your mind. We all have them, Jason Mueller has just taken the chance and written about them.

I really liked a number of the stories, but must say I enjoyed the expanded version of Shower Time the most. It was all together way more gritty and this reader would like to see it expanded into a novella.

I must thank Jason for gifting me copies of these books, they were definitely worth the read.
