Homecoming [Short Story]
Genre - Horror
Year Published - 2012
Length - 20 [digital] pages (total) *Read on my Nook
Written by Franklin E. Wales
Rating: 5 Skulls
The story takes place in the Italian Apennine Mountains, during World War II.
We are introduced to two American soldiers who have "dug-in" during a a blizzard.
When one of the soldiers has to go outside to relieve himself, the nightmare begins...!
Nazi Werewolves... 'nuff said!
Kidding aside, if you are a fan of the film 'Dog Soldiers' go to Amazon and grab this story right now (it's available on Kindle for only a buck!)
Wales has knocked it out of the park with this one, weaving a taught thrill-ride of a tale that follows a soldier being hunted by "creatures" right out of Hitler's laboratory!
You are definitely left wanting more at the end of this one!
The actual story of Homecoming is 13 pages in length. After that, your buck gets you the Prologue & 1st chapter of Wales new novel 'Eaton Falls' - coming out this spring!
The prologue begins on Christmas Eve, 1902, where "the sickness" is ravaging the small town of Eaton Falls. Here we meet a husband/father making his last stand against the hunger and blood lust tearing through his community.
Chapter 1 then jumps to December 1st, present day, where strangers have just arrived in the town...
I am definitely looking forward to this one!
