This story had great lead-up, the author spacing things out perfectly to keep the story running smoothly. As I read this, I could feel the fear that the characters felt, feel their connection through their dialogue.
To say that I wanted more is an understatement. I wasn't keeping track of the pages and I'm sure my disappointment was visible when I'd realized that the story was over.
Though the story is short, it captures your attention from the start, and I'm certain this will be a story I revisit often.
A new work of horror short fiction from the Derringer-nominated author of Ballistic and The God of Speed.
Nine-year-old Kayla suffers from horrible dreams, along with the nagging fear that monsters will come for her in the night. Employees of the Stafford Sleep Clinic think they know better, until an astonished technician discovers that beyond all of the machines, wires, and monitors he trusts so completely, the little girl's fears may not be imaginary after all.
