Deadly Bonds

All Rights Reserved ©


McKenna has one goal in mind - to grab the next flight to Washington and disappear from her abusive parents, the drug treatment center they locked her in to torment her, and the police. And there is only one person who could help her - her childhood friend and first love - Jude. When she enters the private university grounds where he studies, men in black robes kidnap her and force her into servitude to their supervisor. Although her new master, Etienne, promises to help her escape, she doesn't trust him and decides to find a way out by herself. On the night she tries to run away, she stumbles upon a horrific truth. Jude is the leader of the Order of the Red Gate. He proposes to keep her secret and let her stay in the university against a small price - she has to pledge her loyalty to the cult. As grim truths evoke gut-wrenching questions, McKenna is pulled into an ocean of evil and death where one small mistake could cost her either her sanity or her life.

I’ve always been a fan of creepy stories. My YouTube recommendations page is full of true-crime stories, paranormal stories, exploring haunted places videos, and so on, lol. So, I’ve always known I’d write something of this type.

I have another story planned that revolves around Ouija boards and ghosts, but I haven’t even started it yet. Well, someday. I’m too obsessed with the werewolf story I’m writing right now.

Deadly Bonds was inspired by a “lost tape” type of video I saw years ago. It sparked a dream with version 1.0 of McKenna and the other main characters, so all I had to do was to develop them and knit the threads of the plot. I make it sound so easy, hahaha.

PS This will only be a sample. The full book is published on Radish Fiction, but you can unlock the chapters for free every hour or earn coins by watching ads, so you’d be easily able to read it for free.

If you’re interested, just search for the title of the story - Deadly Bonds - or type in my username GalateyaTS.
