Product Description

From the Author

A special thanks to all of those who have taken the journey
with Marty and his friends as they battle an ancient curse, creatures that
have risen from the dead, and a sorcerer whose thirst for infinite power
knows no bounds.

We're thrilled to introduce you to the first part in this exciting new
supernatural series that we hope will have readers on the edge of their
seats, too afraid to turn the lights off!

Wishing You a Frightfully Good Read,
M.T. Acquaire

Marty looked sharply at the door, his breath held in his chest.

The door shattered into a thousand wooden pieces as it flew in every
direc-tion striking Marty as he shielded his face. Margarete stood on the
threshold, her face white, as worms edged their way out from beneath the
sagging skin. She opened her mouth to cry out, and a deluge of white,
squiggling worms fell to the ground at her feet.

Marty screamed hysterically, press-ing his back to the wall. This thing
that stood before him couldn't be Marga-rete. It barely resembled a human
being. The skin was stretched and hanging off her exposed skeleton,
wriggling worms falling to the floor to be crushed beneath her feet as she
walked towards Marty. Her eyes were oozing yellow pus as they glared at
him, fixing him in place with their dark depths, spewing forth venomous
ha-tred, hatred that was centered entirely on Marty Boggs.

Marty tried to swallow, and his breath caught in his throat on the knot of
fear securely lodged there. His voice cracked hoarsely. "Stay away from

Margarete threw her head back and laughed wildly, worms tumbling forth in
every direction. A rotten stench ema-nated from her, a sickening sweet
smell that turned Marty's stomach, making him gag. Her hand shot out, its
bone-exposed fingers gripping tightly around Marty's neck, squeezing the
life from his body.

"You're no match for me, boy," she seethed with a note of triumph as
Marty's vision began to dim. He fought to keep conscious, his legs kicking
des-perately as she lifted him high, face-to-face.

Format: Hardcover
I love a good horror story, and when you mix the horror in with a bunch of supernatural beings and happenings, it's a pretty good bet that I'm going to like it. The great thing about MARTY BOGGS & THE CURSE OF KUTKARA'S TOMB is that, not only is it a great horror slash supernatural slash gory story, but it's well written, with diverse characters that come to life on the page. M.T. Acquaire, comprised of husband and wife author team Matthew and Tanya, knew what they were doing when they wrote this book. They took our hero, twelve-year old Marty Boggs, put him smack dab in the middle of true-to-life circumstances, and gave him a host of problems to deal with--and the end result is a real winner.

Marty's grandfather, Reginald, is a man who has been obsessed for years with finding the tomb of King Kutkara. Although he's never fully realized that there's something fueling his obsession--something from beyond the grave, something truly evil--it's finally driven him insane. A very sick man, Marty's family moves in with the ailing Reginald; as a result, some very strange things start happening. Because, you see, when Reginald finally did find Kutkara's final resting place, a curse was let loose, not only upon Reginald, but upon his entire family.

What comes as a result of this curse are strange happenings, indeed. Not only is Marty starting a new school, with the typical bully attempting to make his life miserable, but even his grandfather's nurse, Margerete, is something that could be from beyond the grave herself. Being mean and nasty is one thing, and even the overt threats she makes in Marty's presence is another, but the woman actually seems to have things--living, breathing things--growing inside her body.

The book was OK, but it didn't keep me riveted to the spot. I could quite easily put it down and watch TV instead. I needed it to grab me and keep me away from the TV and it just didn't do that, and, after finishing the book, I could only vaguely remember what had happened in it. I like books that keep me thinking about the storyline long after I've finished reading them. Lets hope the next mystery has more power to it!

I do find it annoying, when you come a cross a good story, and it hasn't been edited properly. Grammar and spelling mistakes are totally unnecessary nowadays, and when the wrong word is used...... spoils the book for me.

Some examples:
wiped the sweat from his brown
sheparding - should be shepherding
either - should have used the word neither
next store - should have been next door
Ivey League - Ivy League
Jekyll and Hide - Jekyll and Hyde
his stomached turned - his stomach turned
beat red - beet red

What is it with these authors? Do the job properly or don't bother at all.

When I read a book like this, I find I'm looking for the next mistake instead of reading the story. Irritating.
