Mama Thinks I'm Crazy

By Taylor Anne Butler All Rights Reserved ©

Thriller / Horror

Prologue.

The shadows are always scary when I walk outside. No one sees them or hears them. They're in agony. Lost souls trying to get out. I always try to go outside my house in the day time, never at night. Hearing them is like hearing a piercing scream everywhere you go, even when you're sleeping. Sometimes I see them, they look at me. Hoping that I help them. When I sleep and wake in the middle of the night is when its worse or when I look out my window at night and I see their ghostly white faces.

When I was little I used to see them more so than now. I would be in class and the teacher would turn out the lights, they would come out of the shadows to talk to me. I always felt trapped. My mother never understood but my father did. He always said to try and help and they will go away. But every time I tried, the ghost would always come back.

13 years later at age 18 in Eichen House, and I still can hear them. The doctors keep telling me I am insane but I know that I'm not because even sane people hear voices inside their head they just don't listen to them, but these voices are not in my head, their from the outside world. No matter how hard I try I just can't seem to get them out of my head.

Jessica_Nguyen: The plot is amazing, I must say. Especially the ending, it wasn't cliche, it sticked to a real consequences of characters' actions, resulting an unexpected ending. Can't put this novel down at all! Very funny too.

Marimar Amieva: Although I found the vampire thing a bit too much, I couldn't stop reading it. The story had a bit of everything: mystery, romance, a huge plot twist and relatable characters. I congratulate the author for this story and hope to read more of whatever he writes.

rachelrainford6: This probably has to be one of the best books I've read on here. I read it quite quickly and I'll have to say the story took a turn towards the end that I did not see coming. The topic discussed in this book such as life really gave me a new insight and I realize that it is taken for granted.

harry142018: This story was gripping and very professionally written. With lots of twists and slight of hand tricks, the author deceives the reader until finally showing their cards at the end. With several subplots all intertwining to create the main plot, this really is an interesting and engaging read.

Spring: I normally don't read fiction novels, but I absolutely enjoyed reading Silent Shadows! The style is quite different from the previous fiction novels I've attempted to read. Great job!

smile4me: Exciting page turner. I was barely able to put it down to go to bed. I can usually figure out the twists before they are revealed but not this time! Such a thrill to be surprised. I can hardly wait for the follow up!!

Catherine Kopf: This novel has an interesting perspective on a broken mind that obviously the author took a lot of time into creating. The main protagonist is very fleshed out and complex, allowing the readers to root for and feel empathy towards him. There is enough in there to really give the reader an emotion...

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...

christylynnr5: This was beyond amazing! Its plot was so unique! It was a beautiful romance story with a mystery twist! I can't believe it ended the way it did!!!! There HAS to be a second book!! This needs to be published and made into a series!

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...

Rachel Mc Donald: This was an awesome book a real page turner couldn't put it down . The characters all had a good back story . I love these kind of books and would read it if you decided to write a follow up book . Excellent work

Ali Albazaz: I started reading "Caged" few hours ago and I'm on chapter 7 now. Caged is definitely one of the most addictive stories I've ever read. Thank you so much for writing this novel.
