Brady by D.W. Hitz
After Karl is forced to put down his beloved pet Brady, he unintentionally releases a beast from another dimension. If he wants to save himself and those around him, he'll have to figure out how to put the beast back and accept that none of us is ever really gone.
Karl lives alone with his dog Brady. An incident changes that and Karl must put his beloved pal down. As he struggles with his loss, he comes across a strange disc hidden in his home, and from there odd things begin to happen. What an emotional opening! Hitz did an excellent job portraying the sadness Karl felt after losing Brady. It immediately tugged at my heartstrings. Karl doesn’t have long to grieve, and he’s tossed into chaos that has monstrous appendages and a swirling fog that has a thirst for blood. Something terrible has been released meanwhile, Karl is having blackouts with horrible outcomes that could change his life forever. This was my first time reading this author and it was great! The story was remarkably interesting and hit on several emotions. I couldn’t wait to find out how everything pulled together. Karl was a character that I really enjoyed and felt connected to. His emotions and his drive really stood out to me throughout the whole book. I look forward to reading more from this author.
