Unseen

She is a shadow, a wisp of fog. She is an angel of mercy, visible only to the dying, come to ease the terror of their passing.

She would give anything to be seen by the living.

But when the only man who can see her deals in rope and knives and shallow graves, will the price she pays be measured in the lives of innocents?

Would she try to become human by trading away her humanity? More

About Kameko Murakami

Kameko Murakami is an author and oddball who lives, works and breathes in a somewhat-haunted Victorian in San Francisco that she shares with a dog which appears out of thin air (but only when it wants to shower in her bathroom), a sometimes roommate who is fond of breaking and entering, and far too many dusty books to even bother with counting.

She is the author of numerous author's bios for Smashword's Kameko Murakami Page, most of which ended up reading like postings on an internet dating website.

Kameko Murakami also likes walks along the beach, making breakfast in bed and loving the same kind of obscure bands that you do.

She used to date a Serbian with a handlebar mustache. She doesn't have the Serbian anymore, but she does still have his motorcycle, so there is that.

When not tirelessly working on making the world a better place through the power of naps and general laziness, she sits at her antique desk, alone with her thoughts, writing by the light of a single candle, producing stories to entertain and delight, if you're into that kind of thing.

Review by: Cameron D. Garriepy on May 13, 2012 : star star star star star
Danaë longs for normalcy, even as she passes through the world, cursed to be unseen and untouched by the living, cursed to be a last vision for the dying. An angel of mercy. When Christian reaches out to her in a Texan honky-tonk, she wonders if there is hope, and finds only terror.

Ms. Murakami's ability to write the horrific with startling beauty leaves me breathless. She is both a wordsmith and a storyteller. Her characters move and breathe in their space: Danaë is tender, deflecting pity with wry humor, and marvelously passionate at the crisis point, and Christian embodies the frighteningly mundane face of evil.

I had to force myself to slow down, to read this story with the care it deserves, even while the narrative pushed me to devour it.
