Content Review

Em Dehaney delivers an impactful, nightmarish duology with After Us.

In the story “After Us, The Flood,” natural disaster and unnatural horrors combine with the human condition to create a tale of both psychological dread and active terror. The characters and sequences are vivid and compelling. The storyline has excellent concept and progression. I cannot recommend this enough. But realize the unexpected awaits you at every turn of the page.

The bonus story “Mama’s Here” is dark and haunting. The dread and suspense build to a horrifying conclusion. It is a mind-twister that may just give you nightmares.

While not extreme horror, these stories are conceptually horrifying and impactful with a touch of gore and a heaping dose of psychological horror. Both have excellent characterization and are well-paced. This duology is an excellent read for all horror fans.
