You will tremble as they revel in your madness, taking everything from you and leaving you with nothing Delve inside this anthology of what truly lurks within the shadows of the trees. Created by award-winning horror and fiction authors around the world. We dare you to take this journey with us and find out what horrors await you. The Forest Is Calling. Will you answer?”
