One event changed Charity's life forever.
Now she will do anything to get back the man she loves.
This novelette is a 10,000 word story based on flash fiction
There is never anything about Author Jane Blythe’s writing that is warm and fuzzy. Her writing style is gritty, edgy and in your face. She is not afraid to explore the darker side of an unhealthy love. While reading her books I am always appalled at the sinister side of humanity she conveys and shocked at how the character’s act and react. It always resonates with me though how her writing is realistic and if we could be in the mind of monsters and criminals that her writing would be quite close to the truth. Charity’s Wrath is just another example of how she can jolt my senses but give me a story that is graphic, chilling, and oh so wrong but yet right.
Charity’s Wrath is a novelette that follows Charity through the consequences of a choice that she made. One choice that destroyed her and took away everything that she knew about herself, including her humanity. Yes, it was stripped from her and she became a conditioned creature that had one sole focus. Her goal was all-consuming and there was no task that she would not undertake in order to achieve what she considered her prize.
Her character became utterly deplorable and I felt sorry for her, begged her to make different choices and asked her what the hell she was doing? Her goal was a monster so she became one?? Wow! It was disturbing!! While reading this story I was questioning myself if the scenarios felt real, if the situation could ever be plausible? I came to the conclusion that yes, this could be real and in that case Jane Blythe nailed it! This story is the making of a monster and how love and obsession can be twisted into powerful tools.
