This is serious spine-tingling stuff and not for the faint-hearted, it’s a novel packed with chills, thrills, nail-biting suspense and heart-stopping revelations. Join Ethan and Cathy and steel yourself against the blood-curdling terror that lies ahead as you realise that whatever horrors the stormy night can conjure, they are nothing compared with heart-stopping revelation of the new dawn. Chris Priestley’s Uncle Montagu’s Tale of Terror was published to considerable acclaim in 2007 and this one is the perfect follow-up though with an even greater gore factor.

Synopsis

Tales of Terror from the Black Ship by Chris Priestley

At the Old Inn, which clings to a cliff top above a storm-lashed ocean, two sick children are left alone while their father fetches the doctor. Then a visitor comes begging for shelter, and so begins a night of story-telling, in which Ethan and Cathy sit out the last throes of the storm in the company of a sailor with grisly tales to satisfy them.

Reviews

The note of tension and suspense throughout the stories is brilliantly maintained and their ability to deliver one unexpected twist after another will delight even the most prescient of readers Books for Keeps Tales of Terror from the Black Ship is Chris Priestley's second collection of macabre tales and once again he demonstrates that he is the master of the form ... These grisly, gothic tales deserve to be read aloud and are perfect for Halloween The Scotsman Priestley is adept at creating a suitably creepy atmosphere, and his lightness of touch as a writer keeps the pages turning long into the night The List
