After failing at college Ophelia’s sister gets her a job at a charity hospital in exchange for testing a new drug. Included in the array of unwelcome side-effects she begins to hallucinate and starts acting out unexpectedly. Ophelia struggles to quit taking the medication without success. Then things take a bizarre turn when she is visited by ghosts who were erstwhile murdered by a serial killer.
Horror meets literary fiction in this unique novel in which Shakespeare, Poe, and the like join efforts to create a surreal montage of thoughtful introspection. As Ophelia delves into a world of existential indulgence, readers are introduced to her meanderings as she processes a deluge of mind-altering experiences.
Ophelia, Alive is altogether unexpected and will leave readers yearning for more from this author. A fresh perspective on the horror genre, this novel will appeal to fans of dark fantasy and may even spark an interest in classical literature.
