    1. A Dark, Haunting, Beautiful and Chilling Collection I m an Eden Royce addict I never discovered Southern Gothic Horror till I came across Ms Royce s work Since reading Spook Lights, I ve been waiting impatiently for a follow up by Ms Royce and Spook Lights 2 has not disappointed I won t be a story spoiler except to say that the 13 unlucky 13 stories that make up this collection, each bring their individual unease and chill Some will leave you wishing for a different ending while others will make [...]

    2. 4.5 5 starsReview originally posted on my blog wocreads.wordpress 2017 0I ve always loved creepy tales that make for good reading to cozy up with under the blankets But I only discovered Southern gothic horror a couple of years back when I found Tananarive Due s works Those made me fall pretty hard for the stuff, so I jumped at the chance to read Spook Lights II, and I m glad I did.Eden Royce s second collection of Southern gothic horror tells the stories of powerful Black women of the South For [...]

    3. Eden Royce never fails to surprise me I m starting to love this southern gothic mythology I m sad I finished my two books, and now I don t have any interesting book to look forward to, but either way it was a fun scary experience Basque of the Red Death I was mesmerized by this short story, because I didn t really get what was going on, until the very end, and all I was left with was a grotesque macabre feeling that something happened, but I really didn t know what, so my mind would race with di [...]

    4. Better than the firstI loved the first volume, but this one really set a tone for than just a horror collection I always read the sections in the front of the book, and when I read the Introduction, I knew it was going to be filled with grand stories that were than just horror, it was about the human condition and the monsters within I read each story twice, but I really found myself connected with Grandmother s Bed The words stuck with me I ve seen our fall, Gran, and it will be because we lo [...]

    5. Eden Royce writes beautifully Her descriptions are rich and evocative, and her tales magical and strange Spook Lights 2, like the first anthology, is a collection of short, dark fairy tales They are full of romantically portrayed powerful women of colour who can make the impossible possible witches, priestesses and elementals Extraordinary Gothic characters both contemporary and historical reveal deep truths about the past and present lives of people of colour in the Deep South, and the importan [...]

    6. I may have said it before but louder for those in the back Eden Royce is criminally under read as an author She is producing some of the most amazing, unique, and fascinating horror fiction today and she is a master of the short story form I got a huge kick out of Spook Lights 1, and the stories in Spook Lights 2 are just as amazing If you haven t read this collection yet, put it at the top of your TBR pile.

    7. Eden Royce has done another fabulous job with this collection of short stories She captures the vibe and pulse of the south Each story is stirring and thought provoking I hope she s working on a third one

    8. Spook Lights II Southern Gothic Horror by Eden Royce is not your traditional horror anthology This is a book of 13 tales that have the feeling of being passed down by word of mouth from generation to generation in the deep south The feeling I got is that they re the type of tales a friend might tell when they invite you over to their Southern mansion to listen to horrifying tales as you sip brandy by a roaring fire Every geographical region has its own set of stories that gets told by the people [...]

    9. Wow Another book of horror tales by Eden Royce What I love about this are stories,and powers that one doesn t usually read,hear or know about in horror or paranormal but it is part of American history Keep up the good work Eden
