Darkest Fantasy came across to me as a fairy tale with contemporary overtones and language with a curious mixture of the old and new. Presenting a male character mystified by the appearance of a beautiful dark-haired woman in a certain forest glade, young Jonathan is determined to find out if she is real or not, taking his camera along on a night outing to secure proof of her existence. Once there, he is presented with a choice by the changeable female creature: momentary pleasure or lifelong wealth.
Trying for a dream-like quality so the reader would question whether the young man was actually awake or asleep, I found the toggling back and forth between images jarring in a way that interrupted the story’s flow, yet they did present a nightmarish quality to the overall tale so the title is apt: “Darkest Fantasy”.
The mysterious dark-haired lady reminded me of pagan goddesses described of old, with the possibility of death or ecstasy at their touch, yet the character of Jonathon seemed colourless when compared to her richness so it was hard for me to find him believable but perhaps that is what the author intended. I found this very short story an intriguing idea which many readers will be satisfied by for “Darkest Fantasy” is definitely a sliver of erotic fantasy outside of the norm.
Book Description: In the middle of the forest, Jonathan discovers an old foundation where strange beings dance. A raven-haired beauty entices him into her arms, where she offers him the choice of enjoying her body or the fortune of his dreams. Is this woman real or merely a figment of his darkest fantasy?
