Shattered by C. S. Kane
Can an apartment on the seedier side of town retain the aura of a heinous crime committed within its walls? Does the evil still live on long after the victims are gone? When a young couple move into a less than desirable apartment Stacey begins to feel as if there is evil within its gloomy walls. She begins to come apart emotionally and mentally, straining her relationship with her fiancé. Are the visions she sees real? Are they all menacing or do some mean her no harm? Is she losing her hold on sanity?
Shattered by C. S. Kane is one of those dark and sinister reads that are perfect to read on a dark and stormy night for those of us who love to occasionally delve into a haunting read that toys with the mind. The author sets a bleak stage, both physically and emotionally and unrolls the action from there, creating just the right amount of frenzy and fear! Well done, well thought out and just long enough to register a about a 8 on the creep factor scale!
I received an ARC edition in exchange for my honest review from Darkfuse.
