Title: The Brook
Genre: Short Story, Horror
Where I Got It: Amazon (freebie)
There's something evil lurking in the waters of the mountain streams, and only ten year-old Michael Wilson knows how to stop it. Can he kill the creature and save the residents of Sampson, Tennessee, or will he become the monster's next meal?
In honor of Friday the 13th I found a random horror freebie and it is appropriate since it has to deal with water. Oooo!
The story follows Michael is a just a kid and his babysitter had been murdered. He is convinced there is a monster lurking. Can he kill it and save the residents? Or is he doomed?
Oooo kid...never go looking for monsters...it is only asking for trouble.
This was creepy and fun. The ending really got me! Did NOT see that twist...even though I should've. Very good, very good.
I do wish we had some more character development though.
It is short but good and if you need a touch of creepy in your life I recommend this little guy. A good twist at the end that was obvious but not too obvious. I'll stamp this with 4 stars.
|just because why not? Happy Friday the 13th!|
