Summary
Sixteen-year old Horace Cross is plagued by issues that hover in his impressionable spirit and take shape in his mind as loathsome demons, culminating in one night of horrible and tragic transformation. In the face of Horace's fate, his cousin Reverend James "Jimmy" Green questions the values of a community that nourishes a boy, places their hopes for salvation on him, only to deny him his destiny
Summary
Seduced by the dark side of his dreams, sixteen-year-old Harold Cross is overwhelmed and terrified when demons tear his soul from his body and take it on a journey through his past
