From Reader's Favorite Reviews:
The Gothic Shift is a macabre collection of four darkly twisted novellas that are sure to intrigue, thrill, and spook even the bravest reader. Reminiscent of classic Gothic horror stories by the likes of Edgar Allan Poe, it is Bruns' style of writing that is most pleasing.
“I found this book to be an extreme delight. Bruns builds each piece with subtle tension rather than in your face horror. But do not misunderstand that statement, the horror is very real. Do yourself a favor and pick this one up.”
