"A Hauntingly Chilling Tale with aTwist!"

In a rugged house standing hidden in a lush forest near the edge of a cliff, lives Brona with her husband Liam. While her husband is away, Brona's sister Tara is staying with her to keep her company till her husband comes home. After an afternoon spent walking along the cliffs, Borna comes home to find her front door ajar. Not thinking anything is amiss she enters. When her sister does not answer her calls, she goes looking for her. After hearing a terrified scream coming from her sister's room, she runs frantic to help her. Only to find the room empty and blood staining the floor. Swearing the scream came from her room, she searches to no avail. Once more turning to look at the blood, she is startled to realize there is no blood on the floor. Not knowing what else to do, she continues her search of the house for her sister. Thus begins Brona's decent into nightmarish fears; hearing whispering voices, and seeing shadowy glimpses with no one there. Brona can't help but wonder if she is losing her mind, or is there something more sinister going on?

This is my second paranormal horror read by Ms. Nutt, and I enjoyed this one every bit as much as the first! From page one, Ms. Nutt leaves you clues as to what is going on, and I still did not get them. I was surprised by the end, for it was the one thing I did not guess! Shattered Illusions was well written and thoughtfully plotted out, to a satisfying end. Well done, I can only seeing Ms. Nutt's game getting better, can't wait for more!
