Man, that was good.
First off, let me say I absolutely love good horror stories and I think what helps make them good is when you can take real life incidents or tragedies and then add a horror element that makes it all the more thrilling. This was so good.
Read the story now
I mean, like really good.
I mean, like reading while at work, not getting any work done, good.
I just had to finish this story and I gotta say, so far out of all the stories I've read on this site, this is my favorite.
I adore the quotes before each chapter. They're so haunting and fit so well the theme of the story so great choices there. You really have a penchant for horror writing, this actually gave me the chills.
I honestly saw the story going a different way towards the end, so kudos on your twist ending.
I think you could be more graphic especially with the more uncomfortable parts of the story (molestation, murder, turning bodies into dolls, etc.) it's already pretty scary as is, but I'd love some colorful descriptive language thrown in there as well.
But still, tremendous story.
Will read more.
