The Dark Road (Horror)
4 chapters   —   updated Nov 11, 2010 11:39AM
Description: I'm going to be posting a chapter every day this week. I hope you'll come along for the ride and I would love to hear your thoughts! When a group of backpackers are thrown together on a bus from Bangkok to Siem Reap, Cambodia, they have no idea of the journey ahead of them. Shortly after crossing the Cambodian border, one of the group disappears off the side of the road, and they quickly discover they have more than the threat of land mines to worry about. One by one they start to lose both their minds and their lives, as what was supposed to be an adventure, turns into a terrifying fight for survival.

“The anger inside me simmers away at a constant roil. It’s as if I can’t think about anything else. I turn the events of the last couple of months over and over in my head.”
Marissa Farrar, The Sound of Crickets

“I spend a lot of time thinking now. Perhaps too much time. But I’ve decided that cancer is not the worst thing that could have happened to me. Dying of cancer isn’t the worst thing that could have happened to me. Every day, I try to remind myself that it could have been one of the children suffering from this awful, life-threatening illness, and how much worse I would be feeling if that were the case. I’m thankful it is me and not them. If I were to die having first lost one of my children, then I would die with a broken heart. Instead, I am dying surrounded by my family, knowing I was loved. What more could a woman ask for? I have been blessed. Yes, I still have moments where I want to wail and rail against the world. Where I want to scream ‘Why me?’ and cry about how unfair life is. But that is simply life. Bad things happen to good people and good things happen to bad people. There’s no fairness in it.”
Marissa Farrar, The Sound of Crickets

“Where does it hurt?

She lifted her fingers to her cheekbone. Here.

He moved slightly to place a soft, gentle kiss against the bruise.

And here, she said, touching her forehead.

He kissed her again.

And here … She put her fingers to her mouth.”
Marissa Farrar, The Monster Trilogy: The Complete Series
