Genre: Horror

Greg Zipper is a paranormal vlogger whose livelihood relies on his online popularity. When a fight between him and his girlfriend goes viral for all the wrong reasons, Greg purchases a dark web mystery box in hopes of restoring his audience's faith in him and hitting one million subscribers. But when Greg opens the box, he gets much more than he bargained for, including a Boxer who’s determined to stop him from taking his loved ones for granted. Now Greg must do all he can to stop the Boxer, or else he'll lose his livelihood - along with the woman he loves.

My Review:

I never thought I would end a horror story by going "Awwwwww." But I did!!  This is written in play format and personally, I love reading formats like these - you get straight to the point, lots of dialogue and no chance of any overly descriptive paragraphs to slog through.  Morgan brings us an amazing short play that hits hard in less than 100 pages.

I've always been fascinated with the Dark Web - I mean, if you're morbid like I am, how could you not be?  Would I ever dabble there?  99% likely NOT... but never underestimate that 1%. *wink*  Greg is a vlogger who really wants to meet that million subscriber mark and will do anything to get there.  What I love is that this is all true for us on platforms - as much as we say quality over quantity, let's face it, we love hitting those follower count mark if it happens - even if it's something you're not striving for.  Greg definitely goes the extra mile and decides to do an unboxing of a random box from the Dark Web... and as you may guess - it's not the greatest idea.

What happens next? You'll have to read to find out.... and be careful where you dabble on the internet.
