No Way Out and other Short Scary Stories by MJA Ware

Title: No Way Out

Author: MJA Ware

Published: 15 May 2011

Summary: No Way out - Mike takes a bet to go inside a haunted house, but will he live long enough to collect?

Also includes:
The Price of Friendship - How much is a best friend worth? Joey finds out the hard way.

Hobgoblin Horror - Jake only volunteered at the retirement home because Shelby works there. So, it's no wonder he's doesn't hear Mr. Fitches' warnings about a local homicidal hobgoblin-too bad for him.  (Taken from Goodreads)

Thoughts: No Way Out features three stories. 

The first one was quite different. I wouldn't go so far as to say it was spooky but it was interesting. I kind of expected it to go a certain way but then it did the opposite of what I thought it would, so that was an enjoyable surprise. The ending had me a little confused for a while too. I had to sit and think about it for a few minutes.

The second story I couldn't really get into. Mostly because there was a lot about baseball cards in it and I don't really know anything about baseball cards so it distracted me from the point of the story right until the end when I realised that the focus wasn't on that part of the story. Other than that, it was quite a clever story. 

I think the third and final story was my favourite. It was quite interesting in that, this one was actually quite creepy. I tend to get spooked easily by things that are creepy and this last story had me feeling a little nervous.

Overall, I quite enjoyed the book. It was a nice quick read and I look forward to finding more stories from this author.
