A boy who speaks mysterious, rhyming riddles… a mute girl who communicates through art… Two young people held captive by mental illness or is there a sinister connection between the cases – a swan song cry no one has yet heard? As former novitiate turned PI, Tobias Berger, fits the pieces of the puzzle together, he and his secretary/girlfriend find that the supernatural is far from done with them.
As beauty lies sleeping… Four pretty, partying high school seniors, four strange and startling accidents. Do demonic nightmares and fairy tale visions bury a dark secret haunting the girls or is the past simply struggling to reach the light? Twenty-eight year old former novitiate turned PI, Tobias Berger, hired to discover the answer.
After an earth-shattering revelation, vampire Valéry seeks a new world, free of the Old World's pain. Trapped in the darkness he can't escape, his attempt to determine who really is the monster further leads to him becoming one whose greatest deception is the lie he tells himself. Until the illusion is shattered to behold an enigmatic mortal girl.

A quick short story that could be a bit of a tough read for animal lovers about an Appalachian hunter named Jake, whose lust for the kill is quite monstrous. Rather than hunting for food or to stop any real threat by a predator preying on local livestock, Jake instead seems to enjoy killing for the sake of the kill, taking pleasure in doling out death and cruelty and making it quite difficult to feel sorry for him when his eyes are opened one night on a full moon, despite an admonition by former Army soldier, Kevin Faraday.
A fast-paced, well-written and descriptive story with realistic local dialogue, this short tale by author Werner Lind is a clear warning that human beings would do well to cease looking for the monster without and instead guard against the one within.
As a fan of the author’s vampire novel, Lifeblood, I would love to read more of his werewolf mythos if he were ever to continue this short story in a longer work.
