This is a wonderful gothic, paranormal story in the great tradition of the best epistolary novels of the 19th century. Ravenswood Hall is haunted, (or the hallucinations of one man, set to inherit the Hall.)
In the grip of mysterious murders. Ghosts, real and not real, the reader is pulled into the lies, loves, unexplained phenomenon of the Hall. The author does such a wonderful job of creating suspense and consternation, that the pages fly by. Highly recommended.

Yes this book creates suspend but for me the plot was not that surprising and no twists. Be great for people that havent read many of these gothic type horror mysteries. Author has a good style

Great gothic novel but it seemed as if every time I turned the page someone else had died. Very suspenseful with lots of plot twists and a somewhat unexpected ending.

I received an e-copy of Nocturne: A Collection of Dark Tales, from the author H. B. Diaz, for review consideration. Below is my honest review, freely given.

I rated this collection 5 stars. After reading this collection, I stare forlornly out my window, grasping my lace coverlet to my throat while storm clouds build outside. Seriously though, I did feel transported while reading, where opium was still a valid treatment plan and the ghosts are ever so friendly.

THE PATIENT IN ROOM 96 (Flame Tree Press)
As an opening story for a collection I felt this an excellent choice; a manor rising from the forest, drawing our Imogene to it’s decaying interior.

INSOMNIA
This brought to mind the creepypasta, Russian Sleep Experiment. Also, I heard once that our brain loves us very much; but will torture us just for giggles...Like it doesn’t need our help messing us up.

WENDIGO (Jitter Press)
One of my favorite in the collection. This seemed to keep true to the essence of the Wendigo legends, which adds a tragic layer to them. Made me think of one of my favorite movies, Ravenous (1999) as well.

THE MALADY OF MRS. MONROE
Like the other stories, this was written in a way that made it easy as the reader to imagine the scenes the author created; for me, the reason for the malady affecting some and not all pulls at me. I’m not sure if the reason is just escaping me, or not explained. Still enjoyed.

THE CAVE
Another favorite. The connection between twins has always fascinated me, how some can feel the others pain or emotions. I’m still not sure how I feel exactly on this story, but it’s definetely dark.

THE PARASITE (Horror Press)
Flash fiction, or micro-fiction? I can never remember the right label, but this is horror pared down to the teeth, the razor’s edge. Loved it.

THE POCKET WATCH
I got goosebumps the first half, that whole interaction was haunting. I’ve had dreams where I am talking to someone and they interrupt to ask, “You know I’m dead right?” Same vibe. Another favorite.

THE MONKEY’S PAW SPORE (Sirens Call Publishing)
Another favorite. I have a lot of those, don’t I? Ideas created in grief rarely lead to good outcomes, especially in tales such as this.

THE RUINS
Horror authors have given me a healthy fear of any ruins. I wanted to be an archaeologist growing up, I know better now.

ORANGES
Masterfully written; emotionally, it’s hard to read through again. Loved it.

CAROLINE (Danse Macabre Online)
I read this collection is one sitting, so some were read in the wee hours of the night/morning. This one was read after 0200, and I could not get it out of my head when trying to finally fall asleep! Perfect Gothic horror.

THE ECHO OF ELEANOR MAE (ID Press)
A mind trip, but I could actually see this happening; some messed up things have been done under the guise of furthering human knowledge.
… (altro)
