"This is a tale about a man who wasn't afraid to die and woman who wasn't afraid to live." - Anonymous. 

Astrid Solomon is a young psychologist who, after only working for her company for a year, is already showing a flare for getting into peoples heads. When her boss notices this and he sends her out to his most persistent and disturbing client, life for Astrid will never be the same again. 

It just so happens her client lives in the taboo town of Mendax -a city shrouded in mystery, secrecy and horror stories. Everyone knows the people who live there are all some kind of crazy but, the one question no one was ever brave enough to answer is why? 

Well, one young woman was about to find out.

Wow! Not the kind of story I would normally read, but hell I like this :) You might want to describe the characters more, so it would be easier for readers to imagine the people in your story :) And I looooove your cast :) good job!  reading on and adding to my reading list :)

Okay, that was interesting, but I noticed that your paragraphs are kind of long so I suggest that you divide them into two. The last one on the first page especially.
