A collection of Horror Short Stories

The Restless Dead by Deborah Noyes
The Restless Dead: Ten Original Stories of the Supernatural

Edited By: Deborah Noyes

Genre:  YA horror

Pages: 272

Published: 2007

Read: September

3 out of 5

These stories varied in content and interest level- a great quality for a collection of short stories. Because it is difficult to rate as a whole, I will review my favorite and least favorite stories. My favorite was Kissing Dead Boys by Annette Curtis Klause (author of Blood and Chocolate) who writes an incredible story on revenge for her sister’s death. In the author’s note, Klause explains how the plot of the story came about. My least favorite was No Visible Power by Deborah Noyes (the editor). The story had a good promising premise, but quickly became disjointed and difficult to follow. It was as though it was originally a longer story and sections were cut so it could be included in this collection of short stories.
