The nightmare from an old painting, Crepuscule Monstrum, requires sacrifice. Merrick has been chosen. For what, he knows not, but he's terrified until the monster--laughs.

Is he Merrick or Michael? Is Jake really Jake, or is he Crepuscule Monstrum? And is it really so awful to touch this "horrible creature"?

This a short story of fantasy and ambiguous identities with a classic trope. I enjoy reading it and it is cute. The story is predictable after the first realization into the characters lives, but that doesn't mean the rest of the book is not well written. It's sad that the story is so short, otherwise I'm sure the authors can expand on it and make it unique.

I love the epic fantasy quality of the story. The imagery in the book is wonderful, especially the part where the couple reenacts a scene of a painting. I also like the growls and possessiveness in the second half from the assertive character. He definitely redeemed himself in his lover's eyes.

This is a wonderful (and free) short story that I would recommend to m/m fans.
