Hang on, fans of Dawn, don't shout at me yet! It is worth persevering as this little novelette is a good read. It took me about twenty minutes to finish, so great for a lunch break.
There were a couple of editing mistakes but nothing to put you off.
The story is centred around Anna and, Claire, her charge. Anna is suffering from sleep deprivation and this has a horrific impact on her relationship with a baby she was supposed to care for, and her already tenuous grip on reality starts to loosen further.
The story flows well with a decent pace. Fans of quick gore will enjoy this. Some of the descriptions were weak and more could have be done to set the scene, but this is Dawn's first published story and she is off to a good start.
Not for delicate butterflies, but if you're a fan of shock and gore then this is the one for you.
What a fantastic opening line, talk about grab you by the throat and throw you around the room.
For a debut short story this was brilliant. I felt I knew the loving couple and almost fell in love with baby Claire, with her gorgeous little character and intimate description of her birthmark.
The narrator and central focus of this short, is having trouble sleeping and her head soon winds down into insanity; this was brilliantly portrayed with real insight into her thought process.
The horror and gore were bluntly described and doing so gave more shock value including a big dose of ICK.
I am really looking forward to whatever this new author spews out next, definitely one to watch.
For her debut, Dawn Cano has decided to pull no punches and go straight for the metaphorical throat - and gag reflex - with a taboo-breaking extreme horror short story. It's a straightforward tale that nicely cranks up the tension as Anna descends into madness. If, like me, you enjoy it when authors push the boundaries of 'good taste' then you'll thoroughly enjoy this nasty little trip into a damaged psyche. I can't wait to read more from Dawn and see her grow as an author. This lady has got big things ahead of her.
