‘Inhumane Graduation’ By Frankie Sutton

Six months shy of Saniya Montgomery’s 18th birthday and graduation, an ancient demon awakens within her. She experiences disturbing visions of unspeakable acts—whether day or night. Saniya exhibits insatiable hunger. Her attempts to focus on her final months of school result in escalating blackouts followed by a return to consciousness, nude and covered in inexplicable wounds.

Like the women before her, the family bloodline has been cursed for generations—falling victim to possession upon reaching maturity. With little time remaining, she seeks the guidance of a disgraced priest-turned-occultist, one of the few adept at performing the archaic rites of exorcism.

Should the succubus prevail, Saniya would have to sacrifice a loved one’s life to restore her humanity.
