I have really become more a fan of Christina Bergling's writing the more I get to experience. And her stories are exactly that, an experience. Her second novella, The Waning is no exception. From the very first page, I felt a part of this story. She has a way of immersing you immediately into the thick of it.
Trapped, Hopeless, Horror
This is the second book that I have read by this author and I cannot wait to read her future books. She develops very strong characters. They make you want to know what is going to happen next. This book really makes you wonder how you would react in a similar situation. I'm pretty sure I would rather die than to become completely someone's thing, a shell of who I was.
Had me "Captive"
This Waning is a very psychological excursion into the abyss. It leads you through various dark places of the mind and gives an idea how the descent from normalcy can change a person. I liked that it's quite a departure from my normal reads and it affected me differently as well. This book invites you to look into yourself and ask what you'd do in similar circumstances. Will you shut down? Will you resist? Will you fight? Will you go insane?
Awesomely Disturbed Author
I would not want to sleep next to the person who wrote this book. The Waning gets inside your head, gets under your skin. The point of view made me feel like I was the perpetrator, made me feel involved in what was happening. It creeped me out. But it also kept me interested. I had to find out what happened. It did need an actual ending though.
