THE HOWLER

TKW - THE HOWLER*to be read first before Shadow Walkers and Faded*

 

It’s Halloween week in Belmont, Australia, and Sam Almaw and his best friend Elliot Gunfield have been going to the local movie theatre’s fright night weekends, watching five horror movies in a row every Saturday and Sunday in preparation for the big night.

One Sunday, Sam and Elliot hear a howling coming from the river near Elliot’s house, and that’s when things change, especially when Elliot suddenly becomes sick and winds up in the hospital.

Their high school’s annual Halloween costume party, on the fateful night itself, brings a frightening occurrence. A beast-like creature, the height of man and the width of a car, batters down the gym doors and terrorises the students and teachers through one hellish nightmare before taking to the streets. And then Sam and his dad disappear, and Elliot ends up back in the hospital along with everyone else.

But what is the creature and where did it come from? Was it conjured like Beetlejuice and the Candyman, or is it an ancient Egyptian myth that’s far more sinister?

SHADOW WALKERS

TKW - SHADOW WALKERS***to be read after The Howler and before Faded***

 

Elliot Gunfield has been in a coma for a month since that fateful night on Halloween. The night The Howler came into their lives and destroyed all he knew…including him.

After waking, he finds that he’s different. He feels 1083 years old, that he’s lived a thousand lifetimes, and he’s running out of time. He doesn’t know why, just that he is. His dreams are haunted by bony creatures and hands pulling his heart out of his chest, and he finds out what happened to his best friend, Sam Almaw.

With only two weeks of school left for the year, Elliot returns to find he is now the freak of the school. It seems that dying has left him with an unnatural eye colour, so different to his usual dark brown. The fiery amber of his glowing eyes freaks everyone out, especially Gretchen Merryweather, his arch nemesis. But why can’t he stop staring at Gretchen, and why does his shadow look messy and black?

Elliot finds that death came with an unexpected visitor and that visitor is here to stay unless he can do something about it. And when he finds out what he can do he doesn’t believe that’s the only way. And it all has to do with Gretchen…

FADED

TKW - FADED

*To be read third after The Howler and Shadow Walkers*

 

Gretchen Merryweather had felt the brunt of fellow schoolmate Elliot Gunfield’s wrath and paid for it with her life. 

After that fateful night of Halloween when The Howler came into their lives, and with the end of the school year fast approaching, Gretchen suffers serious repercussions thanks to Elliot’s actions.

He was trying to get rid of his Shadow Walker and in the process, took Gretchen for his prey. But she paid his fare to the other side and came back with her own creature in tow.

What has come back with Gretchen to terrorise her dreams and her life? It’s something that sends her to the hospital on her death bed and seems to be sucking the very life and soul from her body and making her fade away.

By turning to the one person she knows can help, Elliot, can Gretchen find out what it is that’s taking her life before it’s too late?
