THE ROAD TO DENDURA, Book One of The Creed Griffon Series
By C. L. Lewis
In the shadows they lurk fueled by intentions most despicable. Shape shifting demons wandering to and fro seeking those children whom they may, in their terms, “collect.” Fueled by the pinions of dark magic, these remorseless henchmen relentlessly hunt for the missing Apprentice. For unbeknownst to that child, he or she holds the key to life and death…all that is, all that was… Will you be next?
The question is not will, but when. No child is overlooked. How will you defend yourself against their evil onslaught… And who would believe you if you could? Don’t look around. Of course, they’re watching you…even now as you read this. It’s just a matter of time. And should you be selected, they most certainly will not renounce their claim upon you. More importantly, what happens to you if they discover you’re not the one they so desperately hope to find?
The people of Sweetwater Massachusetts are terrified! Kids are disappearing! Are they runaways? Is a serial killer on the loose? Or, could the killer truly be an unsuspecting kid as well? Creed Griffon is a twelve year old boy accused of abducting fellow classmate Isabelle Polanski. He was overheard having an argument with her before she disappeared. Little does he know that hideous Giests captured Isabelle! As the case against Creed builds, he begins having what he thinks are nightmares involving these soul-napping creatures. However, after a daytime encounter with one, he quickly learns that his frightmares are very real.
Through the near death experience of his best friend, Burton Woods, and impending incarceration, he’s thrust into the realm of magic, mystical creatures, friendship and betrayal.
During his journey, Creed discovers that his current childhood is not his first and that at one time, he lived thousands of years ago in ancient Egypt. In turn, he quickly learns he’s capable of powerful magic, called Craft. Unfortunately, he hasn’t perfected his new found skills and finds himself in some very hair-raising situations to include being the recipient of a tattoo that won’t stop moving!
