BUTTERFLIES? Can they be dangerous?


Talhah Fadzillah

Nolan Reed is a strange man, to say the least. There are these butterflies living inside him, and they continuously hustle and bustle in his tummy and head. And then there’s Elin Erynnis, a colleague with a severe facial disfigurement who Nolan has an unhealthy obsession for. When she enters Nolan’s erratic life, they get off to a good start, but then he endeavors to uncover her mysterious circumstances, unveiling a broken, twisted and tragic past.

What secrets are derived from a relationship between two lonely souls? Does this winding path lead only to unnerving madness? What happens when the thoughts in your head begin to seep into reality? Nolan delves deep into the rabbit hole to find out for himself.


Particularly for Butterflies: young adult readers of horror/psychological thrillers who can digest and enjoy the unconventional flow of the story and style of narrative, and who can pick up on the symbolism without getting lost in the madness.
