Overview

From the best-selling author of A Mutual Addiction!

Part romance, part suspense, part allegory about the futility of choice and free will. Come Away With Me is Crouch's Dark Matter meets Groundhog Day. It will leave you wondering what's real, what's a lie, and what will drag you back again and again.

"Imaginative, sharp, and full of heartrending subtext, Widdicks is an exciting new voice in speculative fiction." - Meghan O'Flynn, best-selling author of The Ash Park Series.

Turns out, not all doors lead somewhere new...

The room is dark.

Not the kind of dark which is simply an absence of light, but the kind of dark which has a physical presence. It's more alive than I am, wrapping its cold arms around me and holding me captive. Formless and still, not even my breath moves in the room. The only visible light seeps under a door at the far end of the room.

Silent at first, my feet touch the ground for the first time as I approach the sliver of gold. Rough soles scrape against the hard surface and the impact of each step travels up my body, waking it as if from a deep sleep. Only once I reach the door does my hand materialize in the dark. Shimmery and ethereal like a mirage.

With a push the door swings wide and the fierce light blinds me again.

In the vein of The Twilight Zone and Black Mirror, Come Away With Me is an eerie tale of eternal love and damnation, the absence of free will, and the all-consuming power of Norah Jones.
