Haunted by the death of her husband and only child, Elinor Gentry’s recurring nightmares have left her exhausted. She’s crippled by debt, and only the remnants of her former life surround her: things she can’t bear to sell and wouldn’t make much profit from, if she did. Then, for no apparent reason, the nightmares transform into pleasant dreams. Dreams that lead her to take back control of her life.
A string of horrific and unexplained suicides - and an unnerving discovery about Elinor herself - lead her best friend to seek help from the one person who has seen all this before, and things begin to spiral out of control.
Hazel Messinger knows that Elinor’s newly found well-being is not what it seems, and Hazel’s not about to let the demon inside remain there permanently.
This was a surprise
Writing short fiction is hard but writing horror shorts is even harder, but this story did it well. The beginning was slow, but it picked up and ended wonderfully.
