Face death and on that day, as Sun Tzu says, you will finally meet the man.
On his way home from school, a fifth grader is attacked by a human monster. What will he do to survive? Desperate times call for desperate measures.
While this is a horror short story, there are still Sprigg’s touches of humor (albeit dark humor), and hints at a much larger world of great interest.
Because of the length of this tale, I will keep details sparse to avoid spoilers, but there are some truly terrifying moments. Several sub genres of horror are touched upon, all to great effect.
I greatly enjoyed Monster Within, and it ends satisfactorily, but there are elements of this story that are so interesting, I had to knock a star off my review because they aren’t more thoroughly explored. I hope the author will return to these characters and expand on the story at a later date.
I award Monster Within…
Monster Within is available for $1.02 ebook on Amazon.
Read my reviews of Over A God’s Dead Body, Another Dead Intern and Little Drummer Boy, by Joel Spriggs.
