A collection of eight horror and urban fantasy short stories bringing the myths of Ancient Greece and Rome into the modern world. 

Oliver enters the world of dreams, searching for his comatose wife; Helen buys a love potion from an old acquaintance; David attends the funeral of his murdered nephew and Holly is having bad dreams again and her dreams have a habit of coming true. 

And that’s just the start . .

***Katie – #NerdGirlKtLBLy’s Review***
The Child Eater Society is 8 mini horror stories collected in one book. They aren’t horror like “some scary monster in the closet” but more goose bump, psychological, creepy, chills up the back of your spine, not everyone is who they appear to be. Right from the very beginning does the creepiness start in and continues until the very last page. The stories are only a few pages long and all involve different and new characters but they are explained so well in such a short amount of time that you aren’t confused about anyone and you can tell what their motivations are. The only small criticism I can give it is that the stories were so good that I was so upset when I was finished with it. I’d love to read about 100 of these types of stories.
I personally love books that scare you are give you a creepy uneasy feeling so I enjoyed this a lot. If you don’t like those kind of stories this isn’t really for you but I’d still recommend checking it out.
