Straight On 'Til Morning
by Christopher Golden
About the Book:
Straight On 'Til Morning is a nostalgic, coming-of-age tale set in 1981. Kevin Murphy is at a turning point in his life. It's the summer before high school. In just a handful of weeks he'll turn fourteen and he has promised himself that on that fateful day he will finally reveal his true feelings to the girl of his dreams, fifteen-year-old Nikki French. Before he can do that, however, Nikki falls for Pete Starling, an older guy with a serious cruel streak and a pack of buddies who are even meaner.
At first, Kevin is just heartbroken. But then he begins to be afraid. It seems that Starling and his crew are not at all what they appear to be. In order to protect Nikki, Kevin is going to have to gather his own friends around him and journey into another place, a land of war and eternal darkness where there are no heroes... only monsters.
In this brand new novel, Christopher Golden continues to explore the vein of horrific fantasy he began to delve into in the critically-acclaimed Strangewood.
