A Cup of Coffee and a Good Book radio show, I will interview Tim Marquitz, author of the young adult horror novel Skulls. Tune in at http://www.blogtalkradio.com/jennifer-walker/2011/05/11/a-cup-of-coffee-and-a-good-book on Wednesday, May 11th, at 3:30PT for what should be a fun discussion.
Life held little interest for Jacob, until he found death.
Abused and neglected, Jacob’s only solace comes when he is alone in the woods or in the arms of his new girlfriend. But when he stumbles across a hidden bunker filled with human skulls, he learns what true suffering is.
Drawn to examine the skulls, he finds there is more than just empty blackness behind their lifeless stares. Through their eyes he watches them die.
With every glance, he witnesses another murder, the memories of the dead playing out inside his mind until reality becomes a blur. A primal cruelty awakening, Jacob returns to the morbid comfort of the skulls, over and over again. But when he happens upon a fresh skull, a victim tortured and slain for his amusement alone, he knows his time has come. Face to face with death, Jacob must choose whether to resist the darkness that dwells inside or condemn himself forever, murdering his innocence on the edge of an axe.
