Twisted: Volume One is the first of three, soon to be four, books of well-crafted short stories by J.B.Forsyth, in which nothing is as it should be. The stories are powerful and haunting, with a sinister twist from the author's dark imagination. The five chilling fantasy stories are all set in and around Scarborough, with the sea and beach playing a leading part in the first, middle and last of the tales. The remaining two feature a scary bookshop and a man with an unusual and creepy superpower respectively. Reading this book sent shivers down my spine, without anything much being explicitly horrific. The author skilfully leads the reader along his chosen route that is truly 'twisted'. I would really recommend anyone who enjoys this genre to read this brilliant book.

I LOVED this story!! It really took me away to another world. I loved the characters. We were told enough about them to empathise and picture them in our minds, but not too much detail that it was excessive. There are some great creatures described here. I loved the writing style and I think that it flowed beautifully. The vocabulary was incredibly descriptive and extensive, introducing me to a few new words along the way. Although ‘Absence: Whispers and Shadow’ is set in an alternate world, it had shades of the middle-ages and middle-age life, which I found interesting. I liked the details around what kind of work people did, how villages worked etc. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I really can’t wait for the next instalment! I would highly recommend this to others. Amanda O'Dwyer, A LoveReading Ambassador
