"Just when you thought it was safe to look in the mirror, Adam Godfrey shatters our reflected selves with his terrifying novella NARCISSUS. You'll never again trust what's looking back at you." -Clay McLeod Chapman, author ofGhost EatersandQuiet Part Loud
If the remainder of your life was only as long as your ability to avoid your own reflection, how long would you last?
Perhaps a week?
It’s been said that at the core of every legend lies a seed of truth. For four American tourists vacationing in Greece, this is a lesson learned the hard way.
When the group sets out to find a subterranean pool that’s rumored to be the one by which the demi-god Narcissus once wasted away in self-obsession, what started as a fun excursion quickly escalates into a full-blown nightmare. After looking into the waters of the pool, they come to find their own reflections have become infected by an ancient evil. As they’re picked off one-by-one by a malevolence that resides in the reflective world, those remaining race to find a way to bring the nightmare to an end before it takes them all.
In the meantime, all they’ll have to do is avoid their own reflections.
