Extasia is one of the standout stories comes toward the end of the collection. True to the collection’s title, each piece exhibits a strong, clearly defined voice, delivered in a range of forms. The stories we tell ourselves are not formed in a vacuum, but they are also not set in stone; these writers illustrate that stories are meant to be interrogated, and truths are meant to be told.
Editorial View Of Extasia
The name my dead mother gave me is not really mine, not I who will today be made a saint of Haven. I am not like other girls. My father tells me so. He tells me I am greater than any plain girl walking, and now the other elders say it too. They heard it straight from God.Never mind what my mother did.Never mind that there are still some in our village who look at me and my father and my he Barrow family and wonder if we are Devil-touched, same as Mother was.Never mind what I did that day five years ago, what I saw, what I said.No, today marks a new beginning for us Barrows. The elders have deemed me worthy of my true name at last.But when I wake on this day of my anointing,

They claw and nibble, rake your skin with cold, tie your belly into knots.Not once did I see a fright outside of Mothers stories until this winter past. For weeks now I have seen them in trees, real and perched and leering. In shadows, skittering. Overhead, fluttering like bats. More and more, they come.
