There is something eerie about this place -- this village of silent, maddened people.

In 1922 my Papa told me of a faceless entity that lurks amongst us in our isolated slice of Russia. The locals have kept this horror alive for a century, though the only ones who claim to have seen the Folveshch have succumbed to a life of sightless silence. 

My name is Stefan Alyovich and the people around me are changing. They slip into worsening delirium and hysteria every winter, and I ask myself: how much longer before I'm the only sane one left?

... The only one left alone with the Folveshch.

Something about this story is vaguely similar to The Monstrumologist by Rick Yancey, which was written very elegantly, almost Victorian. Perhaps it is the mystery of the monster that brings me to make a connection, but I am now eager to begin reading. One chapter down, several more to go.

Terrific grabber of an opening line. Your depiction of Russian winter gives new meaning to chill. Excellent hook, finding the Malenhovs in that state.

This is all I've looked at so far and already I feel myself being drawn in by the relentless evil lurking behind your words. 
                              This is an amazing opening line and simply perfect for a horror novel. Great hook!

Rereading "The Folveshch" is already exciting me! So far it's astonishing. "The Folveshch" has always been one of my favorite Wattpad books, and always will.
