I originally had hoped to write Charissa’s backstory as a bonus chapter for Dark Reflections. However, at the time, Charissa refused to speak to me. Not surprising. During the entire time I wrote Dark Reflections, she was stubborn about revealing anything about herself. Thus, I published Dark Reflections without the bonus chapter. Then I wrote To Plant a Single Seed and became open to writing short stories. But it wasn’t Charissa who first approached me to start writing Dark Creation. It was Sek ...more

Dark Creations is told from Charissa’s point of view. Charissa has not been outside the home she lives in with her brutally abusive, and controlling husband much at all. In Charissa’s time, it is forbidden for a woman to go out alone. Then one day Charissa gets the opportunity to explore the outside world alone and jumps at the chance to see the outside world once again.

Once outside she doesn’t know which way to turn or who to trust. She wanders into the market district and runs into a beautiful

Thank you to the author and Lola Blog Tours for a copy for advanced review. Opinion given freely and without bias.

I enjoyed this short story and would definitely recommend this author.

Story format: Short Story with author notes at end – obviously the author is knowledgeable about ancient Egypt and has researched many aspects.

This is Charissa’s back story which was intended to be a bonus chapter for Dark Reflections. The author writes beautifully: “Her slaves moved forward without a single word s

A short but enjoyable peek into Charissa. Her origin story.

I loved the historical setting. Kelsey Ketch makes the times come to life with her beautiful writing. It is well research and then presented to us in a way where I felt I was right there with Charissa, on her walk. Amazing, and for our further learning, I like that the author includes what she used for her research, so we can even broaden our own knowledge. A huge plus for any history buffs!

It was interesting to get an idea of what Cha
