Short Story Saturday: Undercover by Tamsyn Muir

Series: Into Shadow #5
Author: Tamsyn Muir

Released: November 15, 2022

Trigger Warnings: Body horror, gore, corpses, ghouls

Undercover is the fifth short in the Into Shadow series by Amazon Original Stories. I’ll confess it’s also one of the reasons I wanted to read the series. I adore Tamsyn Muir (thank you for Gideon, Harrow, and Nona) and will read anything else she writes.

I sincerely think Undercover may be my favorite from the entire series – though I should recommend an ounce of caution, as this short is dark and graphic. Consider all the trauma and damage a ghoul can cause to a person. Now consider all the details that Tamsyn Muir can infuse into her writing, and you’ll get the picture.

Would you take a bodyguard job if it meant protecting and caring for a literal ghoul? It’s a hard line to balance – caring for the rotting corpse and knowing when to put it down. And this ghoul is one of a kind, meaning she’s even more dangerous.

This. More of this! It’s dark, horrific, and perfect. This is the read for you if you love LGBT+ stories with a dose of mystery, fantasy, and horror.
