Halloween night. The freaks are out and having the time of their lives. The kids of Greene Point High School have organized a massive bonfire out in the woods. One drunken teen suggests playing a game, a game called Truth or Dare. That's always a fun game. Always good for a laugh. By the end of this night, nobody will be laughing. Alcohol, sex, deadly secrets, and oceans of blood await them. Do you dare to play?
TRUTH OR DARE is a shared-world horror anthology featuring the morbid writings of Joe McKinney, Nik Korpon, Jeremy C. Shipp, Jessica McHugh, Peter & Shannon Giglio, William Meikle, and many, many more.
I received this book via NetGalley to give an honest review.
I actually thought I downloaded this book via NetGalley but it must not have went through so I bought the book instead as it was archived before I got to it.
This is a book that I think the teenagers and YA will enjoy. They are random short stories that are decently good. Truth or Dare? It is a game many play but for the students of Greene Point High School it may be much more than that. What will each teen that is picked take a truth or a dare? Sometimes the truth is harder than the dare and some of the kids will learn this the hard way.
This is anthology from a group of authors who have some great creepy stories to tell it all goes together one story ending and the other coming into play with a different character. Some of them were creepy, others for me were just okay nothing creepy or scary , and the rest I was some times lost and confused with the story. The two stories I did enjoy are below.
1.An Unpleasant Truth About Death- this one was ghostly
2. The Shadow Life of Suburbia- really creepy with twins. Makes you truly think about it.
If you are looking for something different a combination of different minds coming together to tell stories then pick this one up. As far as being a good Halloween stories I am not quite sure on that one, though I would say reading it around Halloween could be good. Because of this book and seeing a lot of new authors come to light for me there are few that I will be looking into their work.
