These Deathless Bones by Cassandra Khaw (short story)
4 star read
Why I read: Free short horror story
Story blurb: “A horror tale about the Witch Bride, second wife of a King, and the discord between her and her young stepson.”
An original short horror story about the Witch Bride. Beautifully written with hauntingly evocative phrases it reminded me of a dark fairy-tale. It blends fantasy and reality into a captivating tale.
I loved the main character she was strong and suitably evil for a Witch Bride. The young stepson is a horrific and chilling child. Together you wonder which is the most evil. An intriguing tale I hope the author writes more based on this.
Its a great short read for when you need a little dose of horror but only have 10 minutes or so to spare.
I’d recommend to anyone who likes: dark fairy tales, horror, witches
