THE EARTH BOUND
By: Luke Evans
Release Date: TBA, 2020
First comes the shooting pain in his head, then a frenzy of paper, canvas, inks, paints, pencils, charcoal… The first time it happens, when Daniel steps back, he sees a dead hand hanging over the top of a staircase, a pool of blood below, a swirling darkness above. And he knows the darkness is coming for him. Diagnosed with Asperger’s at age seven, sixteen-year-old Daniel has always felt different. He has trouble making friends, communicating with his parents, talking to girls. Now he has a whole new definition of “different” to deal with as his visions predict the real-life terrors unfolding in his small hometown of Spirit Ridge. Luckily, he discovers friends who have powers of their own, and together they can stop this string of bizarre murders—unless the killer is one of their own group.
