RAINSHADOW

In 1999, Jamie Coutts grapples with a Silicon Valley career that’s falling apart. When she receives a mysterious phone call from her sister Chloe — whose dreams are driving her to search for their reclusive grandmother — Jamie takes time off work and travels to meet her wanderlust sibling.

Though technocentric and fearful of nature, Jamie joins Chloe on her backpacking quest to find their grandmother, deep in a rainforest within the Olympic Mountains. But after a severe storm strikes, threatening their survival, the sisters find themselves facing an ancient supernatural presence.

RAINSHADOW

Excerpt From Chapter 15

Jamie lay awake. Her body was exhausted, but her thoughts would not settle. Chloe’s revelation worried her, and the awful camping didn’t help either. The cramped tent, stuffed with their gear, didn’t leave much room to move. Bumps in the ground poked through the thin foam pad every time she shifted positions in the sleeping bag.

Had it originated from the surround-sound system in her condo, the sound of the wind sighing in the trees would have been lovely white noise to drift off to. Here, it only served to remind her that that she was in the middle of dark forest surrounded by creatures.

A hoot sounded, and her eyes snapped open. The noise repeated; it seemed quite close.

She looked at the nylon fabric above her head and imagined a monstrous owl, perched on a limb, staring down at the tent.

Is it contemplating a dive-bomb attack, to rip through the nylon with its talons and peck my eyes out? Or is it calling out the location of the tent to other creatures, which are creeping like a silent army toward us? Mice perhaps, or a pack of wolves, or an enormous grizzly bear.
