‘In These Dark Woods’ By J. C. Gentry

A growing darkness haunts the borders of Mr. Wickham’s small town.
After all his mercenaries have failed to protect their settlement, he does something he never thought he’d do – he seeks out a young woman to finish the job.
Clara is no stranger to the risks of monster hunting. It’s in her blood, after all.
Where the winding roads give way to the sharp, unforgiving lines of ice-crusted trees, she finds the creature that’s cursing their land…
And not for the first time in her career, she wonders who the real monster might be.
