Below is a horror novella by Laurel Hightower.

Below by Laurel Hightower


While driving through the mountains of West Virginia during a late-night snowstorm, a recently divorced woman experiences bizarre electrical problems, leaving her with little choice but to place her trust with a charismatic truck driver. But when an unexplainable creature with haunting red eyes gets between them, she is forced to make one of the toughest decisions of her life. Will she abandon the stranger who kept her safe—or will she climb down below, where reality has shapeshifted into a living nightmare?

I love horror novellas. They are such a great length.

Below was a quick, fun read. Addy is traveling alone at night on a mountain road when she meets a stranger and decides against her better judgement to drive with him through the winter storm.

Below was such an unexpected read. It's part creature feature, part psychological thriller. There were a lot of twists and turns packed into this novella. I will say a lot goes unanswered in this one as well. The reader is meant to follow Addy's adventure and know what she knows which leaves a lot of questions so just enjoy the ride with this one and hope to make it off the mountain alive.

4/5 stars
