Slain in the Spirit

Slain in the Spirit by Melanie Tem 8.00   1

Leila Blackwell is a normal person, trying to live a normal life. In her mind, being a nearly blind, atheistic lesbian should have no effect on her ability to do so.

Unfortunately, an old high school acquaintance and religious zealot named Russell Gavon sees her keratitis as punishment for all of her life sins, and takes it upon himself to "rescue" her from her affliction through religious intervention. He kidnaps her, and thus begins the most harrowing time of Leila's life.

One of the strengths of Slain in the Spirit lies in the veracity of the characters. We all know Leila and Russell through our interactions with people like them in everyday life, and that's where the horror creeps in.
