A party changes
Lisa and Susan are sisters, celebrating Susan’s
Susan is the responsible one whereas Lisa is the wild and carefree
sister. Unfortunately, something goes awry at the party and now Lisa is
delving into the dark world of magic with some unintended consequences.
It’s been awhile since a horror story has really shocked me but wow,
Cory Cramer has sure done it with this gem! SYMPTOMS OF A BROKEN HEART
has one of the most stunning twists I can ever remember reading. In
fact, SYMPTOMS OF A BROKEN HEART is nothing short of brilliant.
SYMPTOMS OF A BROKEN HEART is a horror tale at its core. Cory Cramer
incorporates elements of the shapeshifter mythology into the storyline
to frame his approach to black magic. There is one scene that readers
may find somewhat disturbing and yet it is not gratuitous in the
slightest. Instead, it fits within the context of the world Cory Cramer
has created and adds almost a sense of levity to an otherwise very dark
Cory Cramer does a marvelous job at taking his readers into the
darkness and fear dwelling within Lisa. A horrible tragedy has her
desperate and willing to do anything and this terror permeates every
page. The story is structured through a series of flashbacks which flow
together seamlessly and serve to heighten the intensity of the story.
Lisa’s palpable horror builds up to a startling crescendo as SYMPTOMS
OF A BROKEN HEART takes readers on a wild journey. Bravo to Cory Cramer
for this spectacular tale!
