A young woman with special empathic powers offered a job to create an exhibit of the city's artifacts.
Underneath, they wait for her.
Underneath is a ten-thousand word novelette, approximately fifty pages.
Later in the afternoon when I picked up my Kindle to cont. reading I was at 14%, then it was BAM!I was that I was at 72% then book was finished at 81%.
I think and feel that the author could have really taken the characters further and the storyline deeper.
The Book had a really great beginning, a mediocore ending and barely any middle.
I even arrowed back page ...more

Rebecca's character is well developed. I enjoyed the interplay between Rebecca and her daughter. Their abilities are handled in a way that is both believable and intriguing.

He ends up kidnapped and the ancient city is the location. Rebecca has to try to save him despite the pain the evil vibes causes her and despite the fact that there are perhaps hundreds of evil ghost-like beings that want to make her their next sacrifice.
not high art or a hint of great literature, but it helped me pass an hour without boredom. it's a teaser for a future novel but it is still a complete story...no cliffhanger and I commend the author for that! I hate literature that leaves me hanging...I might buy the sequel if it's not overpriced as this one was entertaining, proofread and well written.
The reason I am not rating it higher than three stars is because it is without hope. The ending is left open-ended and the evil isn't defeated, it's waiting to be let free again. There is mag ...more
Rebecca is hired to curate the exhibit. Unfortunately, she is an empath and the waves of hatred, fear, and terror coming from underground cause her distinct pain. It seems the civilization thrived on human sacrifice.
This was a free short story for Kindle. Enjoyed it.
The characters are likeable but I think Adkins could have done more with them.
The protagonist is fierce and brave and quite sarcastic and I love that in a heroine.
Plus, the plot was really good and suspenseful till the very end and I really liked how the author presented the abilities of the heroes.
Heather Marie Adkins loves magick and words, but not necessarily in that order. She can often be found wrangling chickens in her backyard, pulling weeds from her herb garden, and saving field mice from her cats—when she isn’t plotting her eventual move to Ireland.
Heather is the author of numerous published titles including The Temple and Abigail. She lives in north-central Kentucky with a house f...more
