House of Rain & Lords of Twilight
By Greg F. Gifune
HOUSE OF RAIN
Gordon Cole is a tired and lonely old man. A troubled Vietnam vet and recent widower, he does his best to survive in an increasingly dangerous neighborhood while drowning in the nightmares of his horrific past and struggling with the death of his beloved wife Katy. And then the whispers begin calling to him from the shadows, terrifying visions stalk him relentlessly, the sounds of angelic singing haunt his every waking moment, and everyone in his life seems to be conspiring against him for reasons he cannot understand. As the rains come, soaking the city, Gordon realizes he must face his past, and solve a dark mystery that has haunted him for nearly fifty years. Who was the mystifying woman he met in a bar all those years ago? What happened in that seedy motel they went to? As Gordon searches for answers, something within the mounting rain watches and waits, offering Gordon deliverance from his nightmare. But the keys to Heaven and Hell come with a terrible price.
Welcome home, Gordon. Welcome to THE HOUSE OF RAIN.
LORDS OF TWILIGHT
Strange things are happening in the small town of Edgar, Maine. Mysterious lights dot the night skies. A local farmer is found dead at the summit of a hill with no evidence as to how his body got there. Livestock is disappearing, only to be discovered later, dead and mutilated with precision-like wounds. Newcomer Lane Boyce, a recently divorced schoolteacher with a questionable past, believes there must be reasonable explanations for what is taking place, yet seems inexplicably tied to the events. Haunted by his own demons and drowning in loneliness and regret, Lane had hoped Edgar might be a quiet a place to begin again. Instead, there is madness here, an evil slowly revealing itself. As an enormous snowstorm hits town, Lane finds himself trapped in his small house in the middle of nowhere, alone with his puppy…and something else. There, just beyond the trees, hidden in shadow, something watches, ushering in a new age.
Reality is no longer ours. It belongs to the LORDS OF TWILIGHT.
