Blurb:

An otherworldly, evil and dangerous force infests America’s oldest and most haunted city, St. Augustine, Florida. Everyone living there, or visiting, is at risk in ways too horrible to imagine.

Standing between this invader and the people of St. Augustine are teenagers Jeff and Carla, the mysterious Native American shaman, Lobo, and Lyle, the homeless guy.

In their quest to save themselves and all the inhabitants of this ancient Florida city, Jeff and Carla uncover lost parts of St. Augustine history, push past the limits of space and time, and come face-to-face with what they come to realize are the true walking dead.


Excerpt:

After looking around again for a few seconds, I realized I couldn’t disagree with the guy. “Frozen Time,” as Lobo had just called it, was weird, but I had definitely seen it before.

“Come here,” he ordered, as he stepped out onto San Marco Avenue and walked over to stand right between both lanes of stilled traffic.

I didn’t like the idea of walking out in the middle of where cars and trucks had just been whizzing by, but I did it anyway. And when I got to Lobo, he directed me to look all up and down San Marco. In both directions as far as I could see, nothing moved. Nothing.

“You did this,” Lobo said to me, “not me. Your talent is raw and unrefined but you’re getting there.

“Aw come on,” I protested, “you can’t be serious.”

“On the contrary, your experiences with Frozen Time up to now, including this one, were all caused by you. Up until now, only a deeper part of you controlled it on an unconscious basis, but that has just changed. With what might be coming your way, you needed to be fully aware of this ability. That’s why I staged this little demonstration.”

“But how did I—”

“How did you get such an ability?”
