The Lovereading4Kids comment
This is seriously 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.

Tales of Terror from the Black Ship by Chris Priestley
At the Old Inn, which clings precariously 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 long night of storytelling, in which young Ethan and Cathy, who have an unnatural appetite for stories of a macabre persuasion, sit out the last throes of the storm in the company of a sailor with more than enough grisly tales to satisfy them. But something about this sailor puts Ethan on edge, and he becomes increasingly agitated for his father's return. Only when the storm blows itself out can Ethan relax - but not for long, for the new dawn opens the children's eyes to a truth more shocking, more distressing than anything they heard the night before.
'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'
'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'
