Featured Fiction: Break Me

By Kristen Blank [appeared in QB Newsletter vol. 2, issue i]

Break MeBreak Me opens with the death of Pierre’s mother and his admission that “Now I am free”. We follow Pierre through his daily routine, which becomes increasingly unnerving and sinister. This novella is skillfully narrated and as the reader I found myself doubting my ability to discern the truth from Pierre’s unreliable admissions. The murder of a young girl initiates a series of suspicious events which seem to follow Pierre despite his ‘innocence’. Break Me is a fascinating look inside the head of a man whose loss precipitates the onslaught of dark desires cloaked in mingled philosophies. A very interesting, and at times, suspenseful read.
