My Thoughts:


Dark Minds is a novel made up of forty one short stories by various authors.

There is a vast array of talented authors that are at different stages of their writing journeys. From one young author who is just starting out, to newly established, to the very much established authors. There really is something in here for everyone who likes their stories on the darker side.

For fans of crime books such as the DI Damen Brook series by Steven Dunne and the Aidan Snow SAS thriller series by Alex Shaw, readers will be pleased to see both characters featured in here. It’s great to catch up with some very well known characters and get a quick fix of them.

The stories are a mixture of horror and crime. As there are so many stories it is hard and would be way to long to review each one, so can only base my review on the overall collection. What you will find, is that this will introduce you to new authors whose books you have never read, but after reading the shorts in here, believe me you are going to want to.

I enjoyed all the stories. They are all unique and highly entertaining but the ones that really stood out are as follows:

London’s Crawling by Emma Pullar

Never Tell A Lie by Tara Lyons

A Christmas Killing by Richard T Burke

By The Water by Betsy Reavley

Slow Roast Pork by S E Lynes

The Shepherd’s Bothy by L J Ross

I’ve Gone by Anita Waller

Dangerous Actions by M A Comley

Captive by Stephen Edger

The Retreat by Jane E James

Bonus Story by Jenna-Leigh Golding

As previously mentioned, the stories are a mix of crime and horror. There is a whole array of different crimes and horrors in this collection. Plenty to shock, scare and horrify!

Dark Minds is a truly wonderful collection that is a great way to get a fix when you are in need of something dark and twisted. Best of all, money raised from the book go to two great charities. Great book and highly recommended.

Dark Minds is out today and available to purchase from Amazon.
