Silver Winner for Horror in the Colorado Independent Publishers Association EVVY Award.
Six years have passed since Sam and Alex thought they had vanquished the vengeful ghost of Bartholomew Ka from his Victorian home. But they were wrong. Bartholomew has been watching, waiting for his chance to strike back. And now, he has found his opportunity in Lanie Schnell, a teenage girl whose soul is filled with The Darkness.
As Bartholomew possesses Lanie, he rediscovers the joys of living in a body: the taste of food, the smell of flowers, and the sensation of touch. But he soon realizes Lanie’s spirit is not easily broken. Forced to endure life as a teenage girl, Bartholomew struggles for control as he leads Lanie down a path of hatred and deceit, further isolating her from her friends and mother.
Using Lanie as his pawn, Bartholomew gains access to his old house and Sam’s life, determined to exact revenge no matter the cost.
