Blood Tingling Tales, by Steve Hudgins are anything but blood tingling. Although some of these stories had the potential to be truly creepy, there was way too much telling and not nearly enough showing. These tales remind me of the ones we used to tell around the campfires or on sleepovers as kids, with not enough detail to be truly frightening or freaky.
While entertaining enough, the stories included in Blood Tingling Tales we’re not very scary. I give them three quills.

That’s disappointing. The cover looked creepy. Thanks, Kaye.

That’s why I picked it up, Staci. I thought the cover was cool. But don’t get me wrong. The stories are entertaining, they just didn’t evoke that spine chilling reaction which I anticipated. They could have been written better, for sure.
