Publisher’s Description: Find a penny, pick it up, all the day, you’ll have good luck. 

Find a penny, leave it there, all the day, you’ll have despair.

Or … is that what they want us to believe?

Ross Bonura, a data-retrieval specialist from Boston, discovers an animistic darkness resting within random objects that drives their holders to do evil deeds. Pushed to the edge of sanity and now sensitized to their language, he roams the dark streets of his city, trying to find these objects and contain their power.

These objects manipulate people, influence their shadows, and protect their collective secret. Ross is not alone, others are seeking the objects for their own purposes. Will they be a help or a hindrance to his self-appointed quest? Who can he trust?

This dark horror fantasy will leave you questioning the innocence of any mundane object that crosses your path.

Possible spoilers beyond this point.

What I liked: I love the creepiness of this story. It hooks you right away and doesn’t let up. The monsters and the story are original. I have never quite read anything like this. I can’t wait to read more of Russ Viola’s works!

badge5v4Dislikes: The only thing I didn’t like about this short story was that it was more focused on the objects and how they were attained than on the characters. Several characters were there and gone in just a few paragraphs. While we do learn a little about the main character I would like to know more about Ross and the Foundation.

I still give 5 stars!

If you like this book…
