Welcome to the book tour for short story Egg by Ross Victory!
Egg: A Short Story
Publication Date: October 31st, 2020
Genre: Short Story/ Horror
“Miracle baby” Nakoa Jamar discovers a mosquito bite in the center of his chest on his 12th birthday, which rapidly grows into a Siamese twin. The older Nakoa gets, the more terrorizing his twin brother, Marcus, becomes. Distressed by the changes in their family and unable to bear another scandal incited by Marcus, The Taylors, Nakoa’s parents, research doctors to separate the twins after the boys nearly destroy each other in a merciless fight. The problem is the boys are conjoined at the heart. Separation will kill them both.
Using horror, fertility issues, and Yin and Yang symbolism as the backdrop, Egg contemplates what it means for light and darkness to manifest in the body. Egg explores the limits of love and the limits of hatred while speaking to the ability we have as human beings—the ability to choose.
Egg by Ross Victory is a horror short story that is incredibly interesting. Honestly, I decided to read it because of the title, and what I found was an intriguing concept.
This is a story of conjoined twins. But really, the concept is deeper. A story of light and dark…of yin and yang. This story made me think. It still has me thinking.
I don’t want to write too much. You should go into this story as blind as you can. It is one of the most unique novels I’ve read all year.
