A DEADLY DECEPTION...

Wisps of blue heather slowly whirl into sight, creating beauty, creating horror. 

Two people.

One child.

One brave man. A slave.

Another…watching the scene.

The child’s eyes beam in wonder…in freight.

The mists glide and reforms into an alluring
diaphanous being.

The Hunger shifts closer to the child, beckoning him. Enticing him to step closer. Bewitching him to his death.

The slaves muscled arm retrains the child. 

The Hunger laughs. Fueled by the shadows of the greater Her.

“You cannot restrain me, Slave. I am here to collect your souls.” A laugh like pitted slate grinding against itself echoes through the room.

“No, but I can!” A large figure steps out of the shadows and the ungloved hand of Captain Samuel McCord grips the icy throat of the seductive being. It writhes in pain, fighting to break free.

“What are you?” She gaps.

“Pissed mostly,” McCord says in a raspy tone.

“Kill the monster, Captain Sam,” exclaims little Sammy Clemens.

“Do it. Kill me. End my existence.”

McCord releases his grip just enough to keep hold. “Do you not wish for mercy?”

“Mercy…is ending me.”

The child pleads for the kill, but instead the captain withdraws his hold. 

In releasing HER, she is free to kill again…

Who will be her next victim?

Will Captain Sam McCord save the day once more…


Death in the House of Light
by
Roland Yeoman’s





Are any of us safe from HER?

Another AMAZING tale from the never-ending imagination of Roland Yeomans. How he does it, I'll never know. It must be the ghosts who haunt him. LOL

Thank you, Roland for sharing another exciting adventure with Captain Sam... It's always an exciting journey and this one is sure to please the adventurer in all of us!

Stay tuned for another amazing book being featured here tomorrow. Just one more day and the first weeks is done everyone!

Have a fantastic day!

  19. Fabulous intro, Michael. Seriously, I don't know how Roland does it. His writing his marvelous, but his imagination is astounding. He always has a new, exciting, and fresh story to tell. When does the boy sleep?
