Conduits - by Jennifer Loring - A view from inside a damaged mind
Jennifer Loring has written a beautiful book looking out from inside the mind of a woman who is hopelessly lost in her own world.
In Conduits, Mara Okubo, is a young woman with a tragic past. Already dealing with the death of her older sister, at her own hands, now, years later, she is faced with the loss of her boyfriend. To make matters even worse, Mara is a cutter.
Her friend, Andrea, has had her committed for her own safety.
"Self-mutilation. Paranoia. Persistent delusions. Possible hallucinations. She could see it now.
'Ms. Okubo, we want to help you--'
'You think I'm schizophrenic don't you?'"
The reader is led to believe there is more going on than just a woman who has lost her mind. Conduits delves into the subjects of lucid dreaming, visits quantum physics, and enters the realm of the paranormal.
Although, I didn't fully understand everything that was going on, I did find the story to be completely satisfying.
Part of the Darkfuse novella series, Conduits, is scheduled for release on September 16th, 2014 through Amazon.com and if you are a Kindle Unlimited subscriber you will be able to read story at no additional charge.
Recommended for fans of more literate horror.
