The 13 Series


Some evil is born, some is created, and some merely exists. But however it evolves, beware the fury of a wicked woman scorned.

This collection of twisted tales takes you inside the minds of some of the most evil women you never want to meet. Witches, nuns, housewives, more—they’ll steal your heart while slaying your soul.

You have been warned.

This is the 13 series.

Can you survive all 13?

The 13 Series



“Hey there! This is Amber. Holler if you want me to call you back.”

Marnie smiled. Amber’s voicemail was always direct, yet casual and fun at the same time. It defined her sister perfectly. Despite being twins, they were opposites in every way. Marnie was the dark, serious one, while Amber had the blonde hair and never-say-die attitude.

“Amber, it’s Marnie. Call me back ASAP.”

No sooner had she hung up than a text message crawled across the top of her screen.

Can your phone come out to play?

It was the wrong number again. It was also the same number that had informed her of her sister’s accident. Icy fingers crept up her spine, and she shivered.

Bad timing, sorry, she typed and pressed send.

Is it because of your sister? The message returned almost immediately.

Marnie’s heart caught in her throat. Her fingers shook so hard, she had to type three times before her words were legible.

How do you know what happened to my sister?

One heartbeat. Two heartbeats. Three. Thump. Thump. Thump. Thump.

Because I killed her glared from the chat bubble.

Marnie didn’t even open the text. The phone clattered to the floor, and she covered her mouth with her hand.

No! That’s impossible.

Why is it impossible? People die every day.

Because. She paused, not sure if she should type what she thought. You’re supposed to be a random pocket dial.

There, Marnie said it. Hopefully the prankster would stop. It had to be a prank, right?
