1. Short review:  
2. Long review:
2.1. What I liked:  Well-written short stories.
Roller coaster or walk in the park?  Both.

2.2. What I did not like: 
1.  Using the 'Go to...' button on the Menu, I cannot select the Table of Contents.  To get to the Table of Contents, I must select Cover and page forward.  The links on the Table of Contents work fine.
2.  The history in 'Devil's Mark' is incorrect.  For example, it was impossible at that time for an enlisted man to advance into the officer ranks.
3.  'Memories conjugate like thunderheads.'  (from 'Meditation')  Conjugate?
4.  'The purist of the Puritans . . . .' (from 'Devil's Mark')  Purest, vice purist?

2.3. Who I think is the audience:  Horror fans and short story fans.

2.4. Is the book appropriate for children to read?  I think so.  No profanity.  No overt sex.  No gore.  Tyrpak writes horror the way Edgar Allen Poe did:  the horror exists in your imagination. 
Read 'Forbidden'.  If you have no problems letting your children read that story, you should have no problems with any of the other stories.

2.5. On the basis of reading this book, will I buy the next book in the series?  Does not apply.  This is a collection of short stories, not one book in a series.
Will I buy another book by Suzanne Tyrpak?  Likely not.  I do not read horror.  But I liked some of Tyrpak's stories very much.  She writes well.

2.6. Other:
I got this book for free.  The day I planned to buy it, Suzanne Tyrpak offered it for free on Facebook.  Taking the free book did not obligate me to write this review.  The Amazon price is $0.99, and the book is worth the money.
2.7.  Links:  None.

2.8.  Buy the book:
