Publisher: Kuro Books

From the critically acclaimed author of “Alice in Verse: The Lost Rhymes of Wonderland” comes a chilling collection of rhyming poetry perfect for Halloween…or any other dark and spooky night. From the creepy jingles of Shadows in Nursery and the eerie angst of The Darkening ‘Tweens to the malevolently poetic odes of Medieval Maladies and the sweeping chillers of The Epic Tales, J.T. Holden’s “Twilight Tales” offers a deliciously wicked mix of frightening fare!
I was so excited to learn about this book after reading Alice in Verse. I contacted the publisher and they were kind enough to send along a copy to review. When it arrived, I immediately read through it and then read it again. Holden does another great job with some unique poems. These are all very Halloween-ish and I really wish it had been out in time for Halloween. However, I know this is one that I will re-read again around that time of year.
I’m not usually a fan of poetry, but Holden’s I will continue to read and I look forward to any more he has to offer.
Bonus: Here is the video trailer for the book. If this doesn’t encourage you to buy this, I don’t know what will.
