I have always wanted to write but didn't know what to write. I can now write articles about what I like and I love it.

This is my review of The 13: Tales of Macabre the second book in the 13 series by Stephanie Ayers. This book was published by Ayers Creative Concepts in October of 2018. This book is considered to be horror, fiction, and short stories. In this book, you will find a forward page by JM Ames and an Introduction page by Stacey Overby.

In Frequent Flyer Livery Service, you will find a lovestruck vampire who kills people so he can bring his love back to life. The ending was not what I expected. I enjoyed this book. In Matilda, you will read about a girl who was floating in the ocean. This short story is about a girl named Matilda who was found dead in the ocean who shouldn't have been there. You will find out what happens because of this poor dead girl and the consequences. You will find Cooper, (who has been bullied by other children growing up) who grows watermelons in The Forgetting. People from miles away come just for his watermelons. Things happen when they are given a watermelon. After a person is given a watermelon, he or she dies within a week after. Off to Never Neverland is about a soul in limbo, innocence, and death. It's not really creepy but it is still interesting to read. Phoenix Rising is about the rebirth of a phoenix. It is a short story that would be great if it was longer. Is a witch who was burned at the stake in 1692 the Phoenix? You will have to read this book to find out. In A Bloody Good Meal, a couple invites the husbands' mother over for a Christmas dinner of leftovers which includes people of various ages and sizes. A Cry in the Night is a short story about a wolf mother and a baby. I really loved The Strangest Thing of All. As soon as I started reading this story, I was spellbound. I had goosebumps reading this. This was a longer story than the other stories. Mary Jane is about a brother and a sister who befriends a ghost that no one knows about except for a blind woman.

Most of these short stories are not creepy but different. What I like is that most of these stories could be written into longer stories or some even a book on its own. There is a story for everyone. Stephanie Ayers doesn't disappoint in this book. She knows how to write and get the reader engaged. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good horror, creepy, or different kind of book.
