Where Even Angels Fear to Tread
Seeking closure for the tragic death of her mortal lover, the angel called Rain journeys to the one place in the universe she hates most: the Underworld. The graveyard of the universe. Where all dead things go: creatures, objects, worlds, memories. A vast realm of decay that draws in the fallen and holds them forever. Only the mad or the desperate would ever dare venture its nightmarish depths…but that’s exactly where Rain must go for answers.
Every agonizing step is a struggle to move forward and confront the truth. Rain battles the unquiet dead, her own inner demons, and even more terrible things. The Underworld itself hungers for her light. Not even an angel is safe from its corrupting grasp. As her body withers and her mind begins to fail, can her poisoned spirit endure the horrors that seek to shatter it?
If Rain falters, the Underworld will also be her tomb.
In the beginning of this short story, the reader meets Rain; she is grieving the loss of her mortal lover Jessica. In order to obtain answers to her untimely death, Rain decides to venture into the place she is most afraid of: the Underworld. However, there is a cost that Rain will pay if she wanders too long: she will be trapped there.
This was such a quick read; at less than sixty pages total, I was able to binge this one in a single sitting! Paranormal romance is a genre that I’m not well-read in, but Conte created a story that didn’t conform to the typical love story between a mortal and supernatural being. Conte allowed his plot to focus solely on the bond shared between his two female characters and how grief seemed to separate them, yet ultimately brought them together once more.
I recommend this one if you’re a fan of paranormal romance, if you’re a fan of short stories, or if you’re a fan of Kindle Unlimited books as this one is now available on their service!
