The Cycle by John Wayne Comunale
Beth is ready to move out and be on her own when she suddenly inherits a house from her Aunt Agnes who she’s only met once. Her mother is vague about the relationship the sisters had but decides to let Beth move into the house alone. It starts with bad dreams and mild auditory hallucinations. Then, the hallucinations become more than auditory. Something is happening to Beth and she believes the explanation lays in the cryptic journals she finds in the house. Meanwhile she’s yet to go in the basement and the forest is closing in around her. She thought she was ready to be on her own. She thought her mother supported her. She thought her Aunt was dead.
