Review - There's Something Here From Somewhere Else by Jonathon Cross


Synopsis -


When 10-year-old Lydia received a mysterious doll on her stoop, she never dreamed it would become the catalyst for a perilous adventure.


Although new to town, and shunned by the locals, she can’t dispel their whispers of an ancient creature dwelling beneath the still waters.


Some dismiss the creature’s existence, while others insist that the very fabric of their town, from its flora to its fauna, is under the influence of the Lurker.


Faced with tragedy, Lydia’s doll becomes a beacon of hope. But who gifted it, and can it protect her from the town’s oldest resident?


As Lydia grapples with the enigma of her doll and the dark forces that surround her, she forms an alliance with Jaxson, a cursed boy whose own destiny is entwined with the town's secrets.


Together, they embark on a journey to resist the otherworldly influence of the Lurker. Can Lydia and Jaxson defy the odds and unravel the mystery before succumbing to the sinister will of this ancient entity?


Review -


I have to start this review by saying that this is one of the more original stories that I have read in quite some time. It's like a mix of voodoo and cosmic horror put together to create a haunting tale.


The main character in the story is Lydia, a little girl stuck with horrible parents who might or might not be on the run from some trouble. All she really has is her doll and a reluctant friend who believes that she and the doll are cursed.


There is also the Lurker, a mysterious swamp creature that you are really sure is real or just some urban legend designed to keep kids in line.


It's a twisted little tale with some graphic moments that will stick with you beyond the final page. It also has a truly fantastic ending. A quick read that you can get your hands on by clicking HERE.
