Review of Awaken

Awaken by Zach Bohannon 3.5/5 stars This was a decent short story. It was full of the things I love in my horror stories: action and gore. The MC awakes (haha the title) in a place where he didn’t fall asleep. Unware of what’s going on around him, he’s only sure of one thing: get ...
