Reviews of Black Dog & Other Gothic Tales
“Fantastic read. If you’re looking for creepy, well written, short stories, this book has you covered” – 5*
“A perfect collection of eerie gothic tales for a cosy winter’s night. Beautifully written, atmospheric and well plotted… Can’t wait to read more!” – 5*
“Icy is a true original whose fantastic fiction is a meld of folklore, fantasy and Gothic horror. Rather than copy well-worn tropes like sparkly vampires and werewolves, Icy introduces her own pantheon of terrors. Read this and then get all her other books. Original stories crafted in her vibrant prose style. Highly recommended!” – 5*
