Reviewed by: Robin Goodfellow for Readers' Favorite Spooky Twisties 1: 13 Tales of Terror by Terri Bertha is a collection of thirteen short stories, all of whom center on a group of young children that are only beginning to understand the horrors lurking within their sleepy town. Each tale illustrates the nightmares that hide beneath every tombstone, every Halloween night, and even at every garage sale. From being replaced by a zombie, to being saved by a ghost, to even fighting off a succubus, read how these friends manage to survive each day without dying, all the while going about their daily lives that remind readers of just how blissful ignorance can be. I loved how the stories tied into one another. While the fact that the group never seemed to notice the supernatural occurrences did bother me quite a bit, the way Bertha tied each adventure together made the book worth it. I particularly liked how Bertha incorporated Ms. Miller’s character as the overarching antagonist. The fact that she, aside from Lindsay and her friends, were responsible for at least half of the horrors that this poor town has to go through was amusing, to say the least. It was as if I was watching these two sides walking beside each other, as day and night do, albeit cautiously. I felt the fear of the unknown rise within me, while memories of my own childhood prevented me from investigating any further. I loved how the story wraps around the characters, making me reminisce of my own days when I first began this journey down the horror rabbit hole. Thus, I would recommend this book to those who enjoy R.L. Stine.
