"A chilling and deeply psychological horror work that forces us all to face the deepest fears of our souls..."
~ K.C. Finn, Readers' Favorite
What a delight to meet you at last! I imagine you are many things, some good and glorious, some bad and ugly. But I trust there is one thing that you are not: you are not a faint-of-heart. That's why I give you Umbra.
It tells the story of Ohno Hoia and her search for belonging. The tale is not a pleasant one, and there is no happy ending. If the story makes you cry, or gives you sleepless nights, please forgive me, Dear Reader. I only hope that the eyes of your soul will not miss the Umbra's strange, uneasy kind of beauty.
If you are like me, that is - you want to know more about the book before you commit your time to it - please scroll down and see what other readers had to say about it.
Always your humble servant,
