Nature’s Fifth Season by Michelle Muto. Onedrive.

 

Nature’s Fifth Season is composed of four short stories and one novella. It is by an Indie author whose work I’ve long admired. I first read her The Haunting Season a couple of years ago, and couldn’t wait to get back to more of her work. I wasn’t disappointed by this book either. The first story is Eleanor, an elderly lady who has a lot of cats. Two teenagers come to rob her and discover too late that just because someone looks to be an easy victim, doesn’t mean they are. I shuddered at this story, so gruesome. I love cats and this one made me a little nervous, lol.

The Goblin is the next up. It’s about a boy who’s afraid of something under his bed. He wants the light left on to chase it away but things go a little dark in the story. In a word: awesome!

Crossroads is about a road trip that literally leads straight to hell. A couple must admit hard truths to each other when they are being hunted and things don’t look good for either. Inspired by a college course, it’s truly a ride you won’t forget.

The novella is Touch. It is a sad and bittersweet story about a girl and her dog who she rescues from a shelter. He fears she will leave him like his former family did. She needs him to sustain her through life’s hardships. Together, they are an unbeatable team. So, so heartbreaking and triumphant. A definite tear-jerker.

There you have it! Something for everyone. I love Michelle’s work and can’t wait to read more by her.
