Adrian “A.D.” Dawson. Loving son and brother. Deceased. 1972-1986
When Turtle Dawson’s 14 year-old brother returns after being dead for two years, he brings with him fond memories of the old days, and a chance at redemption for the entire family. But there's something different about A.D., something dark and sinister, and if Turtle continues to do as A.D. tells him, he could wind up in a world of hurt, or worse, he could wind up dead.
Is Turtle’s once loving older brother a giving spirit? a vengeful ghost? or is he something else all-together? That's what overweight and under-confident Turtle must discover. He needs to find out soon, lives are at stake, including his and that of his very first girlfriend, Rita Calderon.
The Memory Giver is a thrilling, twisty love tale about a boy, his new girlfriend, and a vengeful ghost.
Written in my typical page-turning style, The Memory Giver is a sweet, romantic thrill-ride. Like most memorable tales of horror, this book is rich in character, and is as much about redemption as it is about the spooky stuff.
Looking for an unforgettable, horrific treat? Read on, dear reader, read on.
The mist played against the moonlight like dust motes in the air, yet these motes hung with deadly purpose. The mist drifted toward him, a slow moving cloud. As it neared, the room grew even colder. Turtle hunched the covers up around himself to keep from shivering.
“Close your eyes,” the voice in the mist whispered. “Close your eyes and remember the good times.”
The chilling mist was hanging just in front of him now. “Okay,” Turtle said softly.
A part of him wanted to run. This was ghostly stuff and he was afraid of ghosts. Yet the comforting words relaxed him.
Turtle closed his eyes and shivered as the mist split into two wishbone-like streams, travelling up his nostrils. He breathed in deeply, a wintry chill stinging the membrane in the back of his nose. It burned, oh, how it burned.
