Dark Whiskey by Emma Meade



My rating:  5  of  5  stars

(by Goodreads)

Jesse senses something off about the nightclub. She wants to leave, but her best friend, Tasha, is determined to have a night to remember. There’s no way Tasha’s turning down an invite to the VIP section.

Against Jesse’s better judgement, she follows Tasha up the ivory staircase to the mysterious room above. The whiskey and champagne are flowing, and pretty soon the blood will be too.

(A Short Horror Story, approx 7,100 words)


Genre(s):  Horror, paranormal

Series:  n.a.

Length:  25 pages (estimated)



As the best friend, I had been wrangled into hopping on a train and travelling a few hours across country to help Tasha do the deed in the big city.

Oh joy! BFFs were seriously overrated.


My Opinion

This story introduces you to Jesse, a young woman trying to cheer her best friend up. I cannot tell you more about the story as it would spoil the fun of reading it yourself.

With Dark Whiskey, Emma Meade presents us with a thrilling short story. It has a great flow, Jesse and Tasha are very authentic. I had a great time reading Dark Whiskey. It is a fast and chilling read. This story is for you if you appreciate a well written horror short story.



About the author

Emma Meade writes paranormal fiction.
She lives in rainy Ireland and loves all things supernatural. Stephen King’s The Stand is one of her most loved books and she’s lost count of the number of times she’s read L.J. Smith’s trilogy, The Forbidden Game.

Books, DVDS & TV show boxsets take up lots of space in her home and she collects all the Point Horror books she can get her hands on.

She is not ashamed to admit that Dirty Dancing and Twilight make her top ten movie list but wishes to point out that The Last of the Mohicans, Reality Bites, Dead Poets Society, Stand by Me and The Goonies are in there too.

Writing supernatural stories & watching marathon re-runs of Buffy are some of her favourite ways of escaping reality.

My question for you cinephiles:
If Dark Whiskey was filmed – who should direct it, who could you imagine as actors?

I am looking forward to reading your comments.  🙂
