I’ve read work from this author under her real name, but this is my first venture into the work of Rosa Storm. Having that prior reading experience, I can see that all that I’ve enjoyed about this author’s writing in the past shines through to this story as well. The major difference, it’s much darker and there’s even more depth, drawing the reader into the character’s situation.
What this story does is give readers a glimpse at what can happen if someone in a dangerous, abusive situation is pushed too far and the aftermath. Storm knows how to get her readers into the character’s head and see the motivations, justifications for her actions, and emotions. Not much is held back on the page, and yet I didn’t see the ending coming. That’s the true skill shining through this story.

About the Author:
Rosa Storm is a writer of psychological horror stories. Easily scared, Rosa decided to face her fears and started writing horror stories as a therapy not to be scared ever again. She writes in English because she is convinced that in a previous life she was British, so writing in English feels more natural to her than writing in Spanish, her mother tongue. Yes, she is crazy like that. She now spends her time with her amazing husband, author Mark Stone, between Spain and Arizona, which is great because the long flights let her catch up with her long list of books to read.
Rosa Storm is the author of Never Again, a chilling short story included in the anthology of scary tales titled Satan’s Holiday, and Deadly Company, a horrifying short story included in the anthology of urban legends Don’t Look Back. She also writes award-winning collections of short stories for children under her real name, Cinta Garcia de la Rosa.
