Linda Bennett moves from New York to Florida to live a quieter life. She opens a bookstore and makes new friends. Her best friend, Shana, opens a magic shop with elixirs and potions. Oasis offers white sand and blue water with calming tropical breezes. Life is peaceful until the dead body washes up on shore. Linda learns that dead bodies and disappearing tourists are typical for the small town. Rumors abound of secret parties given by the original residents in their secluded mansions behind the town. As soon as the sun sets, dark shadows stalk their friends. Blood soon tinges the water of Oasis a dark red.
Linda and her group receive an unsigned invitation to a party at End House, a deserted house overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Its last owners vanished one evening leaving behind broken windows and destroyed rooms. The group arrives, but no one is there to greet them. End House has a sinister life of its own where horror follows their every step. Traps, illusions, and revolving rooms add to their growing fear. Wild animals escape their cages in the basement, a bloody skeleton sleeps in an upstairs’ bedroom, and body parts fall from the chimney into the living room’s fireplace. With two of their friends lost inside, the young residents flee for their lives.
They embark on a difficult journey, chased by supernatural creatures, not knowing whom to trust, to uncover the one controlling the evil game. Who are The Dead? Are they humans or vampires? Or both? Will Linda lose her heart to Todd who knows more than he admits? Will Shana fall in love with Sheriff Sam? Does the door held by the villagers hold the answers to the never-ending puzzle? Is a second book needed?
The Dead Game has begun.
