A series of intertwined supernatural stories that will make you wonder where the darkness ends and the light begins. All small towns keep secrets, but in Coal Ridge when the secret gets out, it begins to feed…again. Something haunts Coal Ridge, something that was put in a cage and recently released, but by who and why? This story answers those question. While it stands on it own, it connects to actions from several of the other stories and ultimately sets off the event that afflicts so many of the unsuspecting residents of this quiet little town. This is one of those stories that seemed to take on a life of its own as I wrote it; the way it flowed, at times I felt like the story was telling itself through me.
