Synopsis: Xavier gets kidnapped at the age of 17. Two years later his psyche splits after being beaten and mal-nourished. He is taken into the psychiatric hospital after his psychotic break. He now lives in the isolation ward. It’s not too bad and he makes quick friends with everyone else living in the ward but that quickly changes when he is brutally murdered by those same inmates.

Tyler is brought in after burning down a seemingly random house out in the country side. He refuses to take responsibility for his actions and he loves living on the ward. He loves the power that he now holds over the other inmates, now that he has erased Xavier’s name from the wall.

Xavier needs to fight back, this has gone too far. Will he be able to get over his fear or will he ultimately give in to Tyler’s crazy power?

Here is the link where this story can be pre-ordered.

  1. Hello! Read your synopsis, love books about crazy people 😀 You can always mix in anything into the world from their POV. (One of my favourites is The Secret Window by Stephen King). But I have a question, if Xavier is murdered how is he able to fight back? Or did I miss something? Will try to read the intro when I have a bit more time 🙂

  2. Started reading the intro, I love the idea of your book! The only thing that I would mention (just remember this is a subjective thought of someone who has tried to write but has never finished a single novel in her life!) – in the first paragraph there is loads of exposition. As I’ve said, the idea – awesome! But maybe you could intertwine all the info about his life later on, bit by bit?

    And also the use of first person is a bit… I don’t know how to put it. Hm… But maybe it’s just something you were going for, that feeling when you get all the direct info from the protagonist ‘straight in your face’. 🙂

    Had time to read only the beginning of the intro, will continue later on today! Hope my comment did not offend or discourage you in any way!

    Have to run now. All the best in your creative journey and will come back to finish reading the intro! 🙂

    1. I only used first person in order to keep the distinction between characters as the book starts to get crazier. I might change it during the intro but I also thought it would be interesting to see what the main character went through but through the eyes of the person causing the trauma or pain.

  3. Finished reading the intro 🙂 Have some questions, though. I had to go back to the beginning and re-read it as the person telling the story at first says he felt bad for the boy and gave him shelter. But then the next thing he says is that he is cruel to the boy (didn’t catch the reason why he is doing what he is doing but might be you are planning to reveal the reason later on in the book, so not rushing anything here 🙂 ).
    This is one thing that got me a bit perplexed. Then, another thing is that he dropped the poor boy on the ground and the nurse was ok with that? It seems a bit unrealistic to me. And also the fact that he clearly had abuse marks on him (I mean the boy). How come the nurse ignores that? I would call the police straight away, at least I think.
    This is just my subjective perspective on your story 🙂 Keep going! Waiting for the continuation!

    1. The introduction was just showing the trauma that the boy had to face from the kidnapper’s point of view. I just thought about adding it to give a little back story before getting into the actual story of the boy. The hospital is actually supposed to be closed but now that Xavier has finally snapped the asylum is kind of forced to take him in and they aren’t exactly happy about it. More description of the actual hospital comes in the next chapters. I was just trying to dig into the kidnapper’s mind a bit. He will kind of be in the story later but no more of his point of view.
