EXCERPT FROM THE DEAD GAME

     The streets of the village were empty of cars or people. Fallen autumn leaves swirled in mounds around the deserted sidewalks. All was quiet except for the soulful moaning of the trade winds coming off the ocean.

     The two cars pulled up in front of the diner.

     “I hope nothing has happened to them,” Shana said as she climbed out of Sam’s car.

     “What could possibly have happened to them? All the years our town was under attack, they’ve been living peacefully. It was almost if they were immune to all the chaos happening around them,” Mike said.

     Shana said, “We should begin at the diner. The last time we visited, most of the town was gathered there: eating and gossiping.”

     They entered the diner with Shana in the lead. The diner was packed with people to overflowing. There weren’t enough seats for everyone, so most people were standing in the aisles. They weren’t noticed as they quietly stood behind the crowd of people at the front door.

     All the villagers were looking at the same thing: at the door behind the diner’s long counter. The door was open, and Shana could see a colorful and noisy carnival on the other side. She knew that there couldn’t be a carnival outside the diner; however, the scene looked so real that she could even see a Ferris wheel turning. Then a little girl from the diner walked through the doorway to become part of the scene; she ran to the clown who handed her a large red balloon.

     Shana’s surprised gasp caused the villagers to turn around and stare at her. She knew that she’d been spotted, so she just smiled.

     Rose walked over to welcome her and her friends to their village. ”I know that this looks strange, but it is totally harmless. This is how we’ve dealt with the tragic events that have occurred around us.”

     “Is the scene outside real or a figment of our imagination?” Shana asked in wonder.

     “It’s both. First, a person imagines a peaceful scene. Once he opens the door, he walks into the fantasy world of his own choosing. Whoever walks through that door with him or her will experience that same adventure.”

     “How could that happen? Are you witches, or supernatural beings?” Shana asked.

5 STAR REVIEW OF THE DEAD GAME

5 STAR REVIEW OF THE DEAD GAME
A great paranormal thriller, January 19, 2015
By JNSee all my reviews

This review is from: The Dead Game (Kindle Edition)

A great paranormal thriller! This book started off with a bang and never slowed down.

Linda and her friends live in the strange town of Oasis where shadows haunt the dark streets, people disappear, and the rich inhabitants only come out at night. A mansion seems to be at the root of the eeriness, but as the story progresses we find out even some of her friends are part of the supernatural.


I thought the book was simply about a dangerous game that takes place in a sinister house, but it was much more. The characters are thrown into heart-pounding, perilous situations long after they escape End House and just when they think they’re safe another terrifying hurdle comes their way. Every page was filled with action, drama, paranormal scares, and a little romance. The writing was descriptive and catching, really taking you to the haunted town of Oasis. I would highly recommend.

frozen in place.
He’s still in shock from the creatures
he’d seen floating in the cold air.

Cemeteries are dark and quiet at night.

You could actually feel the presence

of the dearly departed.

They feel close by.

Some are too close.

I see dark shadows moving

between the graves.

Are the dead still here?

Some linger on to haunt us.

Do they?

What happens at night while we sleep?

Are vampires roaming the empty streets

looking for their next victim?

If there are part of The Dead, then

they are roaming the streets of Oasis, Florida.

Be careful where you vacation.

Paradise can turn deadly at night.

THE DEAD GAME — DAY 112

Image

Linda and her three friends were beginning to realize that their town was under someone’s control–someone with super-human strength. They didn’t believe in vampires or witches, but events were becoming unexplainable and leaning towards the supernatural.

“You can’t tell their parents about what really happened to them: no one is going to believe the true story. People don’t exit through disappearing doorways—never to be seen again. You could just tell them that they closed their shop and then left town together,” said Shana.
“Great! Now I have to lie to the poor people!” replied David.
“I’ll call them today to tell them that their sons have left town together…without informing anyone where they were going. I agree that this way will be better for everyone,” said Mike.
“I’m sure that this is the best way,” said Linda. “Meanwhile, we can attend this party and find out why the hill residents meet in secret at Diane’s house twice a year. The more we find out, the better chance we have of finding Tom and Edward. We can’t give up!
“Oh! By the way, we haven’t had a chance to tell you about our visit to the village. At the diner, some of the villagers had related to us two strange legends—that their families actually believe in. One legend claims that the people living on the hill are vampires. The villagers have also noticed dark figures lurking around town at the time of Diane’s parties.”
“There’s also a second legend being told by the villagers,” added Shana, putting on a scary voice to enhance the tale. “The hill people are depicted as good vampires, who are combating a group of bad vampires called The Dead—who kill people just for sport. To me, it sounds like what happened at End House.”
David spoke up. “That party made no sense whatsoever: it may have been executed by real vampires, who were trying to kill us. This is beginning to sound a lot like those vampire movies that I’m usually too terrified to watch. That would explain everything—even the creatures that tried to knock us off the cliff!”
“And don’t forget the hooded figures I saw circling Louise in the gazebo,” added Mike.
“A lot of weird things have happened that still don’t make any sense,” said Shana.
“But why were the upstairs rooms controlled by a computer system, while the illusions in the basement seemed to be have been under some kind of supernatural force?” asked Linda. She wanted to hear what they thought about this, knowing that this inconsistency had also puzzled the great know-it-all Todd.
“Maybe this evil being wanted to appear human and therefore, rigged the fancy computer system to confuse us,” said Shana, “or on the other hand, he could be human and only created a trick basement to make us think that a demon was in control.”
Linda nodded her head in agreement: that was exactly what she had told Todd.
“Well, it definitely worked: I’m so confused and frightened that I can’t think straight anymore,” said David.
“Like you ever thought clearly,” said Mike.
“Ha! Ha!”
“Since you guys seem back to normal…we’ll leave you now. Be ready at your store at 8:45 tonight. We’re also picking up Shirley—she offered to take us as her guests. Remember to wear tuxedos,” said Linda.
“I don’t own a tuxedo!” said David.
“I should have known. You can wear one of mine,” Mike said.
“Gee! Thanks! Yours will be much too short on me.”

With the rising moon come The Dead.

They look human but are from it.

They thirst for blood and

take what they want.

No human is safe in Oasis, Florida.

Looks can be deceiving.

Beware of The Dead.
