Hell's Captive by Beth Ann Masarik


Beth Ann Masarik brings us closer to the story of Damien and Selene in this newest short story! In a world where the Greek gods are still alive and well a love story that begins with death and hate is starting to unfold before us. In this short story Elise Stevenson is conducting an interview with Damien, the Prince of Darkness. Damien, a demon, vampire, rocking hot man who is battling between the forces of darkness and light that seem to live inside of his soul is trying to get his story out about what really happened with the moon goddess Selene and his part of the events that unfolded. The short story leaves us feeling sorry for this creature who was born in the dark and yet hungers for light and love. And now that Selene is a mortal will their love ever be able to bloom? Or will she never be able to forgive him for what he has taken from her? It just makes me so excited to read The World Among Us:The Prince of Darkness, which will hopefully be released within a few months!

I definitely recommend this short story. It's only a dollar on smashwords, amazon and barnes and noble for the e copy. It's not very long but you get a great sense of who the characters are and some background history on the world before delving into the bigger book. This short story is a great example of the type of emotion this brilliant young author can portray!
