A child will die. You're afraid to live. Would you go to all lengths to save him? Darkness knows no bounds, as Alcott, an African American doctor sees all too well. The man is petrified by death. His fragile existence rests at the mercy of the universe. This fact is far too much for him to handle. From unyielding nightmares to elevator terrors, he's lost in paranoia.

Assigned to look after an ill child, Alcott's horrors only heighten. Gari is a nine-year-old boy with a fatal disease. He will surely pass on within the year. Alcott bonds with him more and more each day. Part of him knows this grim fate just isn't right.

Alcott befriends a hospital patient. This lunatic forces him to lug home an ancient text on bringing back the dead. Despite the man's obvious dementia, Alcott attempts the scheme. Charging up a cliff, he recites the chant over ocean gusts.

A god woman glides in from the horizon. She instructs Alcott on the trials to save Gari's life. These fearsome Obstacles require true strength. From battling sharks to wielding a flail, he must prove fortitude against genuine danger. Alcott decides his fate at this moment.

Death's claws shall not grasp Gari's soul.

  1. Reading reader

    Did any one really read this book? Large gaps. It should have been three times the length it was. Characters had no background. Things weren’t researched. And the Thesaurus should have been put away. I couldn’t get into it because every page had some errors. It’s buck up, not bulk up, as the doctor told himself!! And you can’t whisk everywhere. This book was published too soon!

      I haven’t read it yet, I keep meaning to but my schedule is crazy! I think Chris is looking for some honest feedback though. I like authors like that!
