Teenagers Dane Grissinger and Kit Eisley never meant for things to go so far when they snuck into the Coulbourne cemetery on Halloween night. Dane's idea of a seance to contact the wife and son that Silas Coulbourne had murdered seemed like a scary, but thrilling prospect for the night.
When Dane disappeared during the ceremony, nobody believed Kit's story that a ghost took him.
Now, 10 years later, Kit is visited by an apparition claiming to be Dane. Kit must bring herself to deal with her ghosts from the past and find the truth about what happened to Dane on that fateful night.
Some secrets, however, do not want to be unburied. Excerpt: “Kit-Kat. Kit-Kat.”Kit roused slowly from her slumber at the sound. The voice was soft, barely more than a whisper, but somehow it had permeated the veil of sleep that she’d fallen under.She saw someone at the end of her bed and her mind jolted her awake. She reached for the lamp and turned it on. She blinked several times in disbelief.An apparition hovered at the end of her bed, semi-corporeal. She could see through it, yet it was still there as if half faded between this world and the next. She gave a long, hard look at the specter. Physically it looked much like Dane, only older. He would’ve turned out so handsome, she thought. What a shame.“Dane? Is that you?” The question hedged on her lips for a moment before she finally asked it.The apparition nodded affirmatively.“What happened to you?” She inched forward in the bed with earnest anticipation.A pained look crossed his face and he disappeared again.“No! Don’t go!” Kit stared at the empty wall for more moments than she cared to count. She slammed her fist against the quilts in frustration. “Don’t leave me again!”© 2008 - DesirĂ©e LeeComing October 30 to DCL Publications http://www.thedarkc astlelords. com
