A Hurt Too Deep

Rated 4.00/5 based on 1 reviews
Steffa thought that by moving across the country and changing her name, she could start a new life free of the stifling old-money and high-society obligations of Hartford Cove.

She should have known better. Her ex-mother-in-law doesn't give up that easily.

When Virginia Vandermere wants something, there's no distance too far, no lengths too extreme, and no hurt too deep. More

About Christine Morgan

Christine Morgan divides her writing time among many genres, from horror to historical, from superheroes to smut, anything in between and combinations thereof. She's a future crazy-cat-lady and a longtime gamer, who enjoys British television, cheesy action/disaster movies, cooking and crafts.

Her short stories have appeared in dozens of anthologies. Her most recent books include The Raven's Table (a collection of bloodthirsty Viking tales), White Death (historical horror set in pioneer times), and Spermjackers from Hell (extreme horror/comedy).

Upcoming projects include: Lakehouse Infernal (a sequel, with permission, to Edward Lee's Lucifer's Lottery) and Dawn of the Living-Impaired and Other Messed-Up Zombie Stories (a collection).

She also edits the Fossil Lake anthologies, is a regular contributor to The Horror Fiction Review, and recently relocated to Portland where she's delighted to be involved with the horror and bizarro writer scene.

Review by: David Blake on Sep. 19, 2012 :
Many self-published or amateur works quickly betray themselves within the first couple of pages, usually with a clunky writing style, a cliched opening or a rogue grammatical error. Within a couple of pages of Christine Morgan's "A Hurt Too Deep" I realised I was reading the work of somebody who really knows how to write - it was not just free of errors, the construction of individual sentences and plot as a whole had a very professional feel. It faithfully adheres to the old maxim "show, don't tell" and isn't afraid to let the reader piece together the necessary information instead of spelling it out.

I won't say much about the story itself because if I expand any more on the preview descriptions I'd be in danger of spoiling the surprises. The plot isn't especially stunning or remarkable, so I've deducted a point for that, but when a tale is told as well as this it's not too bad a handicap. After reading "A Hurt Too Deep" I'm certainly inclined to check out more works from Ms Morgan.
