A novella.

Martin is disturbed. After a nightmare trek through a degenerate and war-torn landscape, the sixteen-year-old soldier returns home, eager to reconnect with his parents, only to discover his house abandoned; the garden overgrown; the livestock dead in their pens. To escape reality, he paints, becomes absorbed in his art. He is alone, until his art begins to talk back.

You let her die...

Now the soldiers are coming. The War won’t let him escape. And soon he will meet two very unique individuals who will offer to share their personal sanctuary with him: Elizabeth, a mysterious woman whose foul-smelling medicines help heal him, and Richter, the hulking, former philosophy professor who wants to kill him.

You have The Fever...

But as Martin learns of the true horror he now faces, he begins to understand the shadowy underworld he has fallen into might be a shattered reflection of his own mind. When he closes his eyes, all he can see are Fevered Hills...
