“The Motel Room, a classic ghost story with a modern twist. We’ve heard enough from the haunted. This tale is told by the haunter.
Since his death, our Narrator has been trapped in a motel room, watching the comings and goings of his nightly guests. The strangers never stay more than a night or two, and they never pay him any mind. Then one morning, a maid turns her head and the two lock eyes – the first time he has been seen since his death. Only then does he begin to discover the true power behind his ghostly form.”
“Martha and her brother were born in the Outlands. They have only heard stories of Invictus, the grand capital city; they have never seen it for themselves. But when their general is taken hostage, Martha and Asher have no choice but to make their way through the monumental steel gates that enclose the city, and bring him home.
In their valiant and misguided rescue attempt, the pair will come to learn that the darkest of Invictus City’s secrets – underground prisons, mutated monsters, psychotropic brainwashing – have been kept hidden behind the wall.
There, they will face the horrors that they never knew existed.”
