A Vulnerable Broken Mind by Gaetano Brown is a horror novel that will keep readers on the edge of their seats. The novel starts at a slow pace in a happy tone. John, a successful lawyer, and Amber Robinson, an elementary school teacher, are a young couple with everything to gain and nothing to lose. Their one-year anniversary is approaching and they decide to take a wonderful trip to Disney World. However, during a late night drive toward their destination, the couple finds themselves driving on an unfamiliar road. A mysterious figure in the middle of the road causes the car to swerve into the woods nearby, and that’s when the nightmare starts for the couple.

Both awaken from the accident realizing that they are without each other. Hurt and dazed, John tries to find Amber, which leads him to the nearly lifeless town of Tuxton. Amber, on the other hand, is stuck in the worst situation that you can think of. I feared for her life and absolutely detested the ones responsible for her misery. It was a bit of a struggle to soldier on and just read the rest of the story. Even so, this goes to show that Brown knows how to get readers emotionally involved with the characters. The prose and narration are clean and to the point. Simply put, a neat, sharp and classic horror novel that can easily entice fans of the genre to devour it in one sitting.
