> FINALIST (Top 5): The Kindle Book Review Awards 2020 - Fiction - Horror/Suspense

“Miriam Brooks has to be one of my favorite fictional characters. She’s a fascinating blend of scientist, geek and unassuming super-hero; she’s also a hoot and a half to follow in her investigations.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, Jack Magnus (5 Stars)

To Miriam Brooks, a solo study trip to an abandoned desert ranch house sounds like the perfect respite from the world, a way to unwind and center herself after a string of unbelievable encounters with terrifying monsters. Yet the desert isn't devoid of life.

Something lurks outside her window, changing its form to suit its mysterious needs. She's familiar with the stories, but legend becomes reality when she stands face-to-face with a soulless copy of herself.

“This is a riveting story with a strong plot that will hold you spellbound from start to finish.” ~ Readers’ Favorite Book Reviews, Anne-Marie Reynolds (5 Stars)

Sample text:

The others whispered in the darkness, but Ana kept mostly to herself, nestling her baby against her bosom and praying the journey would soon be over. An old, battery-operated radio crooned out the twangy tones of American country music from the floorboard of the van. She’d heard the song, but she couldn’t understand the lyrics. Without a watch, she could only guess as to how long she’d been sitting like this. Hours, surely, but many more lay ahead.

With her free hand, she clutched tightly to the strap of her canteen, helpfully provided to her by the driver of the van. The water would be crucial to her survival. Each of them had one, but the pattern on hers uniquely swirled with purple and gray camouflage. She’d probably already drank too much.

Her baby squirmed in her arms. Thankfully, as if sensing the danger himself, he’d hardly made a sound the entire trip. Still, Ana heard the murmurings in the dark. The rest of the refugees referred to her baby as desafortunado, but he gave her the strength to escape. He was far from unlucky.

The van jostled as it turned off the pavement onto rougher terrain. The whispering stopped, each of them waiting, worrying about what could happen next. Ana held her breath, trying to hear anything outside the thin metal walls around her, but she could make out nothing except the metallic tings of gravel striking the undercarriage.

There were soft gasps when the van came to a sudden, screeching stop. Like Ana, they all knew that they couldn’t possibly have arrived at their destination yet.

Within moments, the double doors swung open. A beam of light burst across the darkness, blinding Ana. The light searched the faces, one by one. Ana’s heart stopped when the light fell on her.

Tú. Ven,” said the shadowed man on the other end of the flashlight.
