Product Description

Product Description

A small town in Kentucky is about to learn fear.

Resting in the foothills of Appalachia, Coal Gap is the kind of place where everybody knows one another and people move to raise their children.

One of those children is 10-year-old Billy Griffith, who harbors a secret of an unlimited power of the mind.

Unfortunately for Billy, his special abilities can't remain hidden forever, and a stormy darkness gathers around Coal Gap, a maelstrom zeroing in on the boy.

Within this storm is a stranger with powers of his own to raise the dead and have them do his bidding. This stranger wants Billy's powers for himself, and he does not come alone.

Ty Johnston was born in Kentucky in the United States. After earning a degree in journalism, he spent the next two decades as a newspaper editor. During that time he wrote numerous short stories, nearly all of which have been published in print or digital formats. In his forties, now a former journalist, he decided it was time to get serious about his fiction writing. He is the author of The Kobalos Trilogy of epic fantasy novels, City of Rogues, Road to Wrath and Dark King of the North. He has been published online at Every Day Fiction, Demonic Tome, The Ranfurly Review, Flashes in the Dark and other venues. His stories have also appeared in print in the anthologies "Deadlines," "The Return of the Sword" and "Demons: A Clash of Steel Anthology." Ty's main writing and reading interests generally are in the horror and fantasy genres, but he's not above branching out into literary works from time to time.

4.0 out of 5 stars "STORMING 4/5." 25 Aug 2012
By Jomac
Format:Kindle Edition
Thought provoking well written and thoroughly enjoyable. Well balanced character make~ups, sometimes writers get bogged down with incidental n unnecessary trivia but not here, and generally well delivered scene setting. I shall be seeking out other works by this author immediately. The most enjoyable read I've had, of any genre, for a long while. 4/5 Would've been an extra half star had it been longer. Ty Johnston I thank/salute you in equal measure.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Bad 2 Aug 2012

So I got this book during a free promotion. It sounded interesting so I thought I'd try reading it. The opening was just interesting enough for me to continue on, with the emergence of Mortura, the villain apparent of this story. Then came the first chapter.

At first, I thought maybe the book jumped around too much. It went from the main character Billy, to Lewis, a man that had recently suffered a heart attack and his wife april, to Sam the store owner to Jordy to special person and his mother abigail. Billy makes a slip up at school showing off his telekinetic powers in front of the school blabbermouth and Lewis hears a strange voice telling him to protect the boy inside his head. Jordy eventually hears the same voice and Sam has a run in with the town's teenage delinquents. Still, it takes quite a while for any real point to be made, but I stuck with it. I had a feeling that it was building to something interesting.

The introduction of Vick into the story, an assassin that gets killed and is brought back by mortura, makes things more interesting. He's a guy that seriously loves his job, killing. A bit strange, but alright. Back into the main character's story, he runs into an issue when the town delinquents hear what he can do and decide they want him to do for them.

about half way into the book, it starts to get really interesting. People start rising from the grave, and a lot of major characters die. Billy loses more than most, perhaps. Zombies attack, and Mortura and Vick come into town to make a play for billy. Apparently Mortura wants Billy's powers for himself. Finally, there's one last stand after a heaping load of tragedy and zombie shooting, where Billy triumphs over Mortura with help from three strange beings that may be angels or gods.

Not a bad read overall. I was slightly confused as to why Mortura needed Billy's powers when he can raise the dead and is immortal himself. But still, not a bad read. Worth getting during the free promotion, or even at the regular price.
