Taking Three - Mark R McCallum Horror Book Review
Horror books Review
DEATH KEEPS COUNT IN THE TOWN OF SOKE As the numbers rise, time winds down for 11-year-old Robbie Callahan and Officer Merl Burt. They face a creature-Old Coals-whose power to prey upon its victims’ fears has made reality of the old wives’ tale that death comes in threes. Stalking the subconscious, Old Coals warps reason to wound, thought to poison. It kills by fashioning our fears into weapons, summoning despair, extinguishing the will to live. None save the ostracized eccentric called Wacky Jacky has ever withstood an encounter. Prepared for the conflict by his recently deceased Dad, Robbie fights Old Coals with memory and imagination, while Merl, who’s dismissed the supernatural creature as legend, fights his own skepticism. Both must find the strength to move beyond reason, to overcome disbelief and to rely on faith-Robbie, in his father’s lessons; Merl, in his friend Wacky Jacky’s nonsensical rants-if they are to survive this day. Two already have died. But, Old Coals is taking three. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Author Mark R. McCallum was born and raised in the South.
