Review by Azalea
When Eric begs Ethan to use his psychic skills to help find his drug addict mother, Ethan is reluctant, unwilling to use the gifts that have given him such pain in the past. But Eric is also one of Ethan's few friends and the plea is too strong to ignore.
They embark on the path to find the truth behind Deborah's disappearance only to stumble into the beginnings of hell...for the both of them.
As Eric tumbles down into a dark pit of pain that threatens his very soul, Ethan must to fight down his own demons to help Eric see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Eric’s mother is missing and he turns to his friend, Ethan, an empath whose extraordinary powers Eric hopes will help him find her. But does Eric really want to know the shocking details of her disappearance? And will Ethan tell him?
This was a touching and emotional little mystery with some truly amazing sex added to the mix. The characters are three-dimensional and interesting. Even better, the author described the horrible world of addiction with an awareness that is both honest and perceptive; a surprising explanation and treatment in such a short story.
Except for a couple of very minor editing errors and word omissions, this was a very good story, well-written and riveting. I highly recommend it.
