Chamber of Horrors

A friend of mine… have you seen her? Have you heard anything from her lately? These are the only questions that live in my mouth perpetually. Hoping intently to find my one and only best friend, who would never leave my hand or sight. There, I see the most unusual habitat of the most aberrant creature this town has ever had the opportunity to previse.

 As I strode in, a bone-shattering chill flew at me through the smashed window as the piercing cold air sucked on my body-heat like a leech hungry for blood. The ear-splitting silence was soon interrupted by a small creak from the door at the end of the petrifying corridor. As the door swung open at full speed towards me, I sharped into the room. The quick happening of it all forced me to leap back and crash into the shattered pieces of glass from the broken mirror next to me. Despite my blood rapidly dripping to the worn-out floor I slowly stepped sideways to continue travelling through the dark, terrifying house.

Sharp shadows roamed around the room. The sofa and chairs overturned revealing deep blood stains of the dead. Wallpaper lay curled on the floor. A misplaced grand bookcase stood the corner of the room, undisturbed for centuries; selecting the correct book could reveal a secret doorway into its unsolved maze. Which has my dear friend puzzled in.

Suddenly, a bang followed from behind me. The noise; it came closer. THUMP! THIMP! T-H-H-U- with one swift turn the last thump was interrupted and turned into a swoosh and bang as an object fell on the floor. I lowered down to see the mysterious object... a damaged picture frame touched my fingertips; I peeked into the ghastly frame, covered in webs and THERE she was.... slow breathing, sleeping soundlessly in a picture frame and that is when my heart decided to race a marathon. WHERE IS SHE? I exclaimed. My voice shakes as a lump blocks my throat. How on Earth is her picture pondered in this cursed cellar?

Gently descending down, finally the thought of “she has to be in here” running around my head; I stepped on the squeaky spiral staircase into the basement and seeing the walls mounted with animal heads. They were all covered in cobwebs like the rest of the house indicating nobody has been in here for at least a decade. As I started to ascend back up the stairs something in the corner of the room caught my eye... a glass rested on the table full of ice cubes, looking as though it was filled up seconds ago...

Kalyan Shobhana: There is not a moment in this book where you think...let me stop now. this book cast a spell that compels you to finish it. in the end...you just hope and pray that may it turn out to be a series and the author keeps writing more and more. Let's just say this books makes me want to be selfish ,so...

GeorgeS: The author has a VERY refreshingly direct writing style. Sometimes being punched in the gut (or nose, as the case may be) can be an excellent thing, indeed. Whatever may be lacking in subtlety is more than made up for in the diamond clarity of character development. I look forward to MORE. I c...

kim: This is great! Maybe it could just be a little more specific. One of the keys to great writing is describing things in detail. I think you're off to a great start. I wish you much luck.

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!!

lopezmariana97: I loved everything about this book. I read it in a weekend because it was so hard to put down. I real liked that it wasn't a typical demon story and that It didn't involve vampires. I pictured the cast for this book if it ever becomes a movie. 100% love

Michelle Shane Hammatt: Well written fiction. I couldn't put it down and read it until I was finished in one sitting. Can't wait to see what the author has in store for us next. The characters were real and you felt like you were watching the story being played before your eyes.

Jan Imonti: Loved the story, but didn't like the delivery...had to read this on my computer on line. Wasn't able to download it to my kindle. Excellent story, lots of twists and turns. Fairly quick read. Love the versitility of Mitchell's writing. Keep up with the great mysteries.

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.

Dina Husseini: To be honest I never knew you could make a fantasy this scary. I really enjoyed reading your story. At first to be honest, it was a bit boring but then it got so interesting and fun and (also you even scared me at times). I would really love to see this story on the big screen. It does deserve sc...

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). ...

Alex Reltin: This is a great story! I love how well you go into detail and emotions of Capri, and Mel. You have amazing dialogue and overall it's just a thrill to read!The only critique I could find is that some of the paragraphs should be separated. For example:-"If Nia would have just let me take the car an...

Kiz16: After a truly shocking start to the story, I found the style and content slowed down as the author introduced a varied group of characters who I thought were fleshed out very well. After a slow couple of chapters, I found this story difficult to leave with the tension growing within the house. Yo...

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!

Alex Rushmer: I read the first chapter, and I'm not sure I can handle anymore, but I certainly liked what I read. The idea of the drug, Fortis, was very interesting, and I enjoyed how you conveyed its effects. The beginning is very intriguing. I think I'd like to see you do a little more with the main characte...
