The events in this story blew my mind. I love writing that surprises me, and this kept me holding on for dear life, with no idea what might happen next. The creatures and situations that are brought to life here are unlike anything else I've seen or read. They are unique to the worlds that Alex Beyman creates. So when you enter these stories, it's like discovering a whole new realm that's both terrifying and, despite all the monstrosities found there, still deeply human. While my mind was reeling at the way things unfolded, I also felt a sense of purpose in each event, an underlying symbolism that affected me all the way to the core. There's nothing gratuitous in this horror story, existing only to disturb or terrify, although there are lots of terrifying moments. Each situation is part of a beautiful message, one that you come to understand, right alongside the main character. You take this journey with him, and in the end, you find that you've changed too. Writing with this kind of power is rare.
