 About the Book 

“A little suburban nightmare.”Imagine a place where the people are a bit unusual, perhaps even a bit strange. You know the kind of place we’ve all heard about. Then imagine a place that’s a little closer to home, a place that’s somewhat familiar.More“A little suburban nightmare.”Imagine a place where the people are a bit unusual, perhaps even a bit strange. You know the kind of place we’ve all heard about. Then imagine a place that’s a little closer to home, a place that’s somewhat familiar.Imagine a place like Colonnades...Growing up in a town where it seems that everyone is out to get you is tough at the best of times. But when that town closely resembles a vision of hell, it can be a real nightmare. Despite the stench of the stagnant, chemical-choked waters- rotting fish- roving death squads- sleeping diseases- and armies of ravenous rats, sixteen-year old Aleck Bride has got worse things on his plate.Recently, school outcast Adrian Drummond began singling him out for a campaign of harassment and intimidation. However, as Adrian Drummond’s stalking turns into full-blown psychosis, it rapidly escalates into a campaign that will eventually lead the entire town straight in to the pits of hell.For as the mystery (a mystery stretching far back into the town’s brutal, colonial past) unravels it soon becomes clear that, somewhere beneath the streets lurks an ancient terror, worse than all the horrors of Colonnades combined. An ancient terror that is capable of bestowing on the psychotic teenager known as the ‘Kid’ the power to turn nightmares into reality.Aleck’s only hope is that his uncle Matt will turn up in time to help prevent the Kid from destroying the town. But even Matt—a career criminal accustomed to violence, who has seen the very worst life has to offer—struggles to come up with a solution to the nightmare.As one by one the townspeople fall victim to the Dreamterror Epidemic—an insidious disease by which the Kid is able to bend the will of an entire town—the streets start to become deserted, haunted by horrors usually confined only to nightmares. With Matt’s help, Aleck sets off into this nightmare world, determined to stop the Kid from unleashing further madness. But even as he does the threat of war looms, and the bloodshed begins...So why not come and pay a visit. You might discover that it’s closer to home than you think. Come home to Colonnades today. Because, brother, we’re expecting you.Authorised by the Ministry of Adrian(Formerly Colonnades City Council)
