“When capture or surrender means that your life is forfeit, failure is not an option.”
A spellbinding Gothic short
I was drawn into the young woman’s surreal world from the first page. What seems like a dream quickly becomes reality as she flees the swift arrows and the people chasing her. Confused, isolated, and exhausted, she keeps fleeing until she finds herself in a fancy ballroom with a beautiful gown. It is there that she reunites with “her lord”. This is a setting she is more familiar with. As the tale unfolds, you soon learn who she really is and why she’s being chased. Bizarre, quick, and page-turning, any lover of Gothic fiction will enjoy this read!
