A Graveyard Visible
by Steve Conoboy
Genre: YA Fantasy Horror
There’s a graveyard visible from Caleb’s bedroom window, and it grows a little bigger every day. He sees funerals there each evening, but nobody’s dying. He investigates, he measures. Misha, the strange girl who lives there with her grandfather, takes an unwanted interest in Caleb, and he can’t shake her off. But he’s sure those peculiar mourners, the same ones at each graveside every time, are forcing her into rituals against her will. He finds himself deep in a world of the dead, and it may be too late to climb back out.
Note from the Author:
This is a shivery story that takes a fresh look at a very familiar location – the graveyard. No mere zombies or vampires here. These revenants are being ripped from their final resting place, and all will be punished.
We meet Caleb, thirteen and still reeling from the death of his mother. He deals with this grief alone – his father is shut off in a world of work, and his grandfather is sinking rapidly into dementia. Misha, outcast by the other kids, could be his last chance at a friend – how far will he go for a shot at friendship? She is not easy for him to deal with. Misha has no love for a world that has labelled her as victim. Caleb, then, is in for a big shock when he expects her help in saving the town. These kids, already struggling to find their place in the world, will be tested to their limits as the horrors escalate…
