The 13: Tales of Illusory By: Stephanie Ayers

I have to admit I usually am not a fan of horror stories. As a teenager, I loved reading the Omen, Salem’ s Lot and other scary books. Then for some reason, I didn’t like that genre anymore. But that seems to be changing  – again.  Stephanie Ayers has written a book of short stories – horror stories, including poetry.

I found it to be mesmerizing,  intriguing, captivating.  Stephanie has a special talent.  She creates magic in her words, drawing you into each of her stories, making you feel as if you are walking alongside the characters, feeling the emotions as well.  See all sides of the dimensions.  And that is truly what a great writer does.

In the story “Season of Change,” I don’t know why but I read that one over twice. I think in a way, I  myself thought it was comical (perhaps I was the only one) but Stephanie wrote it in a way that made me think of an old Criminal Minds episode.

There are many stories in this novel and I highly recommend this book even if you are not a fan of horror. Try going outside your comfort zone.  Believe me, this is an excellent book and I look forward to reading Stephanie’s other novels and her future works she has coming out. This woman has tremendous talent!!!
