Part time Toronto Star sport reporter Jackson Rutledge never expected an email from Sabrina Osterling, a woman who has no need of male help, pleading with him to meet her at the Valhalla Inn in Mississauga. Having had some harrowing adventures with Sabrina, Jackson’s curiosity propels him to go to the meeting. Sabrina begins an out of character seduction that Jackson likes but does not believe in after some of those incidents he has seen with her. Jackson escapes an impostor Sabrina.
Jackson and the real Sabrina meet and compare notes. They realize creatures are draining everything from humans leaving behind withered rind. Now these creatures seek Sabrina who has proposed a book on shape-shifters. Jackson agrees to help Sabrina with her investigation into the stalking horrors of the night.
Anyone who reads this enticing horror tale will have a craving like this reviewer for other works by author T.K Sheils. The story line grips the reader tighter than a creature draining a human as the audience shares the terror felt by the lead couple. The return of Sabrina and Jackson (see BUTTERFLY HOUSE) will delight fans as this neat unique pairing augments the plot by their ability to work as a team even as they clearly care or perhaps love one another, but remain in denial as to how much they need the other. Their relationship provides an earthly counterpoint to a powerful novel that showcases a talent that genre fans will want to read.
