[cue harp run]
You’d swear the synopsis is from some other book entirely:
Three years ago Cort O’Leary was the pride of his precinct at NYPD. After he watched his partner and lover die one terrible night, he sought a quieter life in rural New England. He thought he could run from his past, but nightmares about his lover’s death have suddenly become more vivid. Worse, an evil entity – The Story Keeper – has used his sorrow as a conduit and intends to feed off Cort’s soul…
Good idea not to use your full name; it makes it harder for the attorneys to come after you. (Also: It’s a teen lesbian story.)
Another “Oh, this is fantasy?” cover.
I don’t know what that combination of images and fonts says, but it doesn’t say “teen abduction thriller.”
