Prologue

Buzz. 

Smack. 

Silence. 

She glanced around...

Nothing. 

It's my imagination, she thought. 

But she wasn't sure. 

Just a moment ago, she thought she heard the vibrato of a buzzing creature; As if it were getting closer or coming out from somewhere inside her. 

Instinctively she took a swat at the air. 

The buzzing stopped. 

Where did it go? 

Did she kill it? Did she injure it?

Whatever, she thought. It's gone. 

To be honest, she didn't really know if she heard it at all. 

Tinnitus. 

Insanity. 

The former merely required a thorough cleaning of the ears. The latter, required considerably a lot more work. 

Most times she chose to think it was tinnitus. She didn't get enough sleep, she said. She's stressed, she said. And each time she was right. She hadn't gotten enough sleep or she was currently burdened by things out of her control.

But every time a little voice inside her continued to give her cause to doubt.  

Maybe you're going batshit crazy, it said.

elssxa: I love everything about this story. I want more...more...more. This author is superb. I am fascinated by his amazing work. I give him five stars.

M. Drewery: I was scrolling down the story list and stopped on Happy Days because I was briefly reminded of the TV show. I started reading the blurb and thought 'oh no another Zombie story' except it ended in the best possible way. Now I'm drawn into a fresh take on the zombie apocalypse, which takes a much ...

Dina Husseini: This story is wonderful. It made me quiver and shake and always turn around and see if there is anything behind me. I have enjoyed reading this story. It is marvelously written and you can feel the fear in the story. This one is unique in itself that it does not need any sequel. A...MA...ZING!!

ChristianHooks: D'graive is the conduit the whoooole time. Can you believe that? DAMN NATURE YOU SCARY! WHAT IN TARNATION

Bri Hoffer: I couldn't put it down!! The characters are all incredibly likable, and it's so descriptive you can see, smell, and feel thier surroundings. Great story, and very well written. I cannot wait for follow up stories. there were a few grammatical errors, but nothing that I could move right over.

skippybash12: This story has engaging characters that you care about and a plot that is unpredictable and exciting. It is well written with a believable voice. Great weekend escape and if there was a sequel available I would buy it today -

shadowmaven: At first, the word "Dagon" threw me, making me think that this was going to be a story based on one of Lovecraft's, and was pleasantly surprised--no, make that thrilled--when it wasn't (honestly, I like your mythos more). Your writing is so lyrical, deftly capturing this tiny village and the rela...

MusketeerAdventure: Well - I really enjoyed this very much! The whole idea of a shared haunting really intrigues me. I thought you did a wonderful job; and I really liked the idea of hearing from the first ghost's point of view. It would be interesting to read more about these two - and the ghost-busters that inf...

Deleted User: This is a very clever story in the style of 19th century (and turn of the century) Gothic writing, very reminiscent of Stevenson's The Body Snatchers or even of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde (less so of Frankenstein itself, since the author is more minimalist than Shelley's florid, Romantic rhetoric). ...

Deleted User: (A review in progress). I like this. It's sparse, gritty and atmospheric - reminiscent of the classic Golden Age of American detective fiction of the Thirties. I've only read the beginning, but I'll definitely be back. This writer knows their stuff and has done their homework on detective work. T...

Shifa Gohar: this book is my first on inkitt and I love it thoroughly...but i guess this is not the end. The characters were amazing the plot too. At times it scared me more than a horror movie would. Love the plot something i had not read in a while.

Dina Husseini: I loved this story. It was so great that I did not expect it to be this awesome. I swear to you this deserves more than just 5 stars. Beyond amazing. Kept me wanting more and I felt exactly like Emma felt while reading. Although in the beginning I did not expect anything to happen. Then, when som...
