Marshall Seaver is being haunted. It begins with mysterious sounds, a fleeting face outside a window, a rogue breeze - all things that can be explained away. That is, until he comes face-to-face with a character who only exists on the pages of a sketchbook - a character Marshall himself created.

Marshall has no idea why he is being tormented by this forbidding creature, but he is quickly convinced that is has something to do with his best friend, Cooper, who has gone missing. Together with Cooper's beautiful but aloof sister, Sydney, Marshall searches for the truth about his friend while ultimately uncovering a nightmare that is bigger and more frightening than he could ever have imagined.  

Review: Marshall Seaver thinks he's going crazy. The drawing of a character he created – Gravedigger - has come alive to torment him. On top of that, his dad is on a business trip and his best friend has gone away with his parents. Marshall (Marsh) is just an average kid, an art geek, who lost his mom and is trying to figure out his life. Marsh finds out that Cooper’s gone missing and needs Sydney, Cooper’s sister, to help him solve the mystery.

There is so much going on in this story and you’ve got to read carefully to follow along. This is a chilling story full of suspense as you’re drawn closer to the Morpheus Road. Even though this is a trilogy, it’s definitely a complete and satisfying story as a stand-alone. Any fan of psychological suspense will love this book!
