For readers who enjoy reading Dean Koontz and Stephen King, reading HOUSEGUEST will make you want to turn on ALL of the lights and then look under your bed before you close your eyes. So buckle up and continue reading the ORPHAN DREAMER SAGA—an eschatological fantastical coming-of-age thriller tucked into the stories of children entrusted with a Divine mission and answer: What makes the main villain of the Orphan Dreamer Saga tick in this short story?
It's almost Hanukkah then Christmas. Only a year ago, a Jewish family, the Bushcrofts, escaped Nazi Germany. The date is December 11, 1941.
Asher Bushcroft is twelve-years-old, short, and a social outcast. His sister, Natalia, is sixteen, breathtaking, a gifted violinist, and a dancer. They are inseparable, or so it seems. But, every villain has a beginning, and Asher's villainous beginning starts on the same day that the United States enters World War II. Asher barters with a dark force named Nomed in order to win the affections of a popular girl at school.
Nomed vows to assist Asher in his lustful adventure in return for a favor—murder two children to prevent them from thwarting Nomed's plans for world domination.
Will the children survive? If they don't, will you survive?
If you knew your ending, how would you have lived your beginning?
