The Culling by Sian B. Claven

Sian B. Claven


Elders came to their rescue.

cities across the world were established. 

cities across the world were safe.
cities middle children went to Nirvana.

a world enveloped in darkness, where demons surround every inch of
the globe. Twenty safe Zones have been set up and are protected by
the Lord, and his Elders. Each year one Zone sends out their next
generation of Middle Born Children to reach Nirvana and spend the
rest of their lives with the Lord.
once outside the Zone, they are left to wonder if faith alone is
enough to protect them from the darkness of the world.


As she was going backwards she noticed a young girl standing at the back door. Ebony frowned, still going up and down, but no longer moving her legs to build momentum. She saw the girl as she went up, lost sight of her, and as she came down saw the girl again. She was strange looking, and Ebony considered that may be she was one of the previous Reclaimed who made it to Nirvana, but her body temperature suddenly dropped, and a sense of a foreboding settled upon her. Something wasn’t right with this girl. Ebony slowed her swinging, keeping eyes on her. She was dressed in a white plain dress that hung to her ankles. It was nothing special, almost old fashioned. Ebony couldn’t make out the girl’s face because her long black hair hid it. As Ebony stopped the swing, she noticed the girl’s hands were blue, as though she was cold and had bad circulation. Ebony had seen it happen to some back at the Zone when the winters were particularly bad. Sitting now on the swing, she watched the unmoving girl.

Chapter Six – The Culling

from Johannesburg South Africa, Sian B. Claven has enjoyed stories
for all her life, whether she was reading them or making them. She
has written for as long as she can remember, but Ensnared is the
first book she decided to publish. Moving towards writing more for
the horror / paranormal thriller genre, Sian has subsequently
published the first two books in The Butcher Books series, Tatum and
Kallista. When Sian isn’t thinking of ways to terrify people, she
enjoys writing science fiction stories, poetry and rather long and
gushy birthday wishes. When she isn’t working on her writing you
can find her knitting, scrapbooking, reading, or playing Xbox. Sian
previously reviewed for The Blithering Bibliomaniacs and still
reviews in her private capacity. She clearly doesn’t know what the
words rest and relaxation mean, at least not in the traditional
