Five girls must confront the darkness within and around them in this haunting collection of dark paranormal tales. Stories included:

LUX AETERNA: Hell has its demons. Lux has Foster Dad George in this coming-of-age superpower origin story — of a darker sort.

MAUDLIN CARNIVAL: A mysterious investigator prowls through the memories of Evelyn Jones in search of the clues he needs to prevent her tragic death. But time is almost out. What will happen to Evelyn should he fail?

ROZA MIRA: In these three connected tales, Svetlana, Catalina and Soojin have it all: beauty, youth, successful modeling careers… and a creepy man in black who watches them from afar. But each day he gets closer. They call him El Flaco, Geulimja, a Rasputin in a suit. Who is he and what does he want? The three girls will soon find out — whether they want to or not.

★★★★★ Awesome
❝Deadly Beauties is a collection of short stories by LA author Cherita Smith, a fairly new-to-me author who has impressed me with her hauntingly beautiful style of writing that reminds me of Tanith Lee, except with an American urban flair... These stories were dark yet beautiful, and very nicely done. Recommended.❞
