Sting of Hope by Bert Edens
Faced with raising his terminally ill son alone, a father does what he must to find a cure for the disease. While a potential solution may provide hope, the price may be more brutal and horrific than he ever imagined.
This quick read is well written and effective if you can stomach horror involving children. It begins in a parent’s worst nightmare—a terminally-ill child—and passes through the sci-fi hope of a miracle cure before descending through body horror into utter despair. Maybe get it to read after the pandemic is over; the themes of illness and loss are a little close to home right now.
