The History Major by Michael Phillip Cash
(Excerpt from Goodreads) After a vicious fight with her boyfriend followed by a night of heavy partying, college freshman Amanda Greene wakes up in her dorm room to find things are not the same as they were yesterday. She can’t quite put her finger on it. She’s sharing her room with a peculiar stranger. Amanda discovers she’s registered for classes she would never choose with people that are oddly familiar. An ominous shadow is stalking her. Uncomfortable memories are bubbling dangerously close to her fracturing world, propelling her to an inevitable collision between fantasy and reality. Is this the mother of all hangovers or is something bigger happening?
Amanda has woken up with the king of all hangovers. But things are different. Her roommate is a stranger and she finds herself enrolled in a history class even though she hates history. But as a rude guy in a toga starts the class, she finds herself actually participating in the history lessons. Intermixed with that is parts of her own, dark past.
This story was not what I was expected when I started reading it. I thought there was going to be the normal horror aspect since it is by Michael Phillip Cash. But this story is so much more. Amanda goes to a history class that she signs up for and finds herself watching the events take place. But mixed with these stories are those from Amanda’s past. Amanda has a dark past, hopefully she can learn from it and never have to repeat it.
I loved this story. It is short but packs a big punch. It will leave you thinking. This is one book that I think everyone should read, even if it’s just so we don’t fall into the trap of our past.
I received The History Major for free from Michael Phillip Cash in exchange for an honest review.
