The sleepy town of Kerchawa seemed just as old and tired as any other small town in Nebraska. But... there was something frighteningly different about it. According to the legends of the Omaha Indians, who had lived there before, high in the sky above the little town lived spirits of people who were not dead. Their sole purpose was to inhabit the bodies of unsuspecting people on Earth and brazenly assume their lives in the process. They would stop at nothing. They were the cloud monsters.
Twelve-year-old Alex Poe was just beginning his summer vacation. He watched with fascination as a cloud miraculously fell from the sky and instantly turned into a tall, thin man from another time. Later that night, a mysterious and enchanting young girl, who appeared to be wearing a blue and white gingham dress from the nineteenth century, met him in his dreams and bade him to join her in the clouds. Her name was Annabel Lee.
Only the richest man in town, Ebenezer Wilson, knew what was truly going on. However, the troubling secret he carried with him, along with the very unsavory pact he had agreed to eleven years before, could very well keep him from helping anyone… even himself.
What exactly is going on in Kerchawa and why are the cloud monsters so obsessed with young Alex Poe?
The exciting journey to the conclusion of this story is both a nightmare and a fantasy cleverly cloaked in reality.
The author advises, “Read on if you dare. The answers will come. Whether or not you can handle them is the real question?”
