FALL CHILDREN: Twelve years ago, Mark Jackson was a teenager starting a new high school, in a new town, holding little hope of making new friends. To his surprise, he found some. Though, more accurately, they found him. Soon, Mark finds himself under the wing of the charismatic James, loyal Carl, and beautiful Heather – who seems to have taken quite a shine to him. They are more than he could have ever hoped for. So what if they dabbled in a little black magic on the side? He was happy, how bad could it really be? How wrong he was. Now in his 20’s, Mark is attending regular talk-therapy sessions with a renowned psychologist. Through these, his story unfolds towards its cataclysmic conclusion.
