About the eBook:
Shelley Campbell only meant to help people.
Recruited by her professor into working with a group-study program investigating phobias, Shelley has been using her ability as an empath to enter the minds of troubled patients. Within the dreamscape of their memories, Shelley uncovers their repressed childhood fears in order to help heal them.
But some fears are buried for a reason. Now, more than lost dreams are resurfacing. Something else is waking too, something dark and long forgotten, something hungry for the taste of our terror . . .
Shelley Campbell has gone too deep, has found the place where the darkness waits. A place ruled by the moon, a place where midnight lives, a place where every night is Halloween.
A place called Moontown.
Praise and Reviews:
"This finely written and sharply told tale is a strong example of modern horror…the kaleidoscope of peril keeps readers guessing and gasping."
— Publishers Weekly
"Atkins' fusion of fast-paced narration and surreal horror packs a large wallop…His continuously morphing and malevolent Moontown demon is memorable enough to rival Elm Street's Freddy Krueger."
"Atkins is a brilliant supplier of shudders and splendors."
— Clive Barker
