Your new favorite hair-raising thrill awaits.
Praise for The Darkest Lullaby:
“It is not every day you come across stories that have been marinated in suspense, cooked in gore, and finished up in an intriguing fashion that creates a horror story. This is an art form that comes naturally to its wielder. It feeds on the mastery of its source until a classic is created. When six truly talented individuals come together to create an anthology of some of the most frightening stories to grace paper then you know you are in for a treat. The Darkest Lullaby: A Dark Nanny Anthology is one such book as Elle Beaumont, Cathya De Becerra, Jessica Cranberry, Marlena Frank, C. Vonzale Lewis, and D.M. Siciliano bring to life a nanny’s worst nightmares.
The Darkest Lullaby cannot be any more descriptive than its title. With storylines that will make your hair stand on end Elle Beaumont, Cathya De Becerra, Jessica Cranberry, Marlena Frank, C. Vonzale Lewis, and D.M. Siciliano combine their talents beautifully to treat the reader to a master class on the art of the scare. From nannies reliving lifetimes to a doll that is not exactly a doll, the tempo remains steady and the suspense heightened. The characters in all the stories are well-crafted and have an impressive level of emotional depth to them. The conversations do not make it obvious which direction each story will take which adds to the mystery. The notable aspect of this collection is the way each author takes the ordinary and pushes it to the edge of reason in such a manner that will make the reader question the very essence of logic when attempting to solve these puzzles. The Darkest Lullaby is a horror masterpiece in its purest form.”
