Daily Kindle Bargain - Castles by Benjamin X. Wretlind


When Maggie was six, she hid from desert storms under the sink where the Comet and Windex were kept. Now twenty, she welcomes the storms.

Maggie has been abused, torn apart by the sins of others and constantly feels as if she's living on the verge of some grand epiphany. Then again, she may just be insane. Maggie doesn't know if the four bodies she dismembered and placed inside a rusted Volkswagen Bus are the only bricks left to her castle in the sky, but she hopes you'll understand if they're not.

Castles is Maggie's story, a literary horror novel about love and redemption, belief and revenge and what brings a person to madness. Set in a nameless desert in a nameless town, it is the view into the life of a young woman who wonders if madness is really mad.

From the Reviewers:

"It's one of those tales that blindsides you and you're thinking, what the hell is going on here. The answer: Madness. I'll never look at a pair of scissors the same again. Highly recommended."  
--John Paul Allen, author of Monkey Love, and Gifted Trust.

"...pick up Castles. It is a well written tale designed to make you feel uncomfortable. And isn't that what good horror is supposed to do?"
--Bradley Convissar, author of Dogs of War
