The Return of Spring-Heeled Jack

ISBN-13: 978-0985882976

 

Spring-Heeled Jack is a British urban legend, first appearing in 1837. Eye witnesses tell of a man who could leap several stories in the air with little effort. Some say he could breathe blue fire, others say he lured women out of their homes and attacked them by clawing at their faces. By all accounts he was a thief and a menace. Sightings of Spring-Heeled Jack continued for several centuries and crossed numerous continents, but he has been mysteriously absent from the 21st century.

Until now.

 

Spring-Heeled Jack breaks into the houses of two women, brutally attacking them both. Police report that a few items from each house were stolen and neither women were critically injured. His appearance is frightening: dressed in all black with hat, full face mask, goggles, cape, shirt, pants, and boots. He then breaks into an antique store, searching for special items for their energies including a rare glass knife. With the correct combination of objects and energies, Jack can open portals to different times and places. Enter Alice, who works at the store. Jack suspects she herself can open portals and the two develop an unlikely alliance in a search for a portal to a mythological utopia.

“…the cause lives on, immortally.” Strange occurrences happen in the small town of Arcacia all the time, and her residences wouldn’t have it any other way. Sammy and Frankie are Arcacia’s most paranormally active residents and within these pages you will see how they can teach anyone to believe… Thomas Manner was never given his just due in this word. Thomas Manner had gone unrecognized by everyone…until recently. When Sammy offers him friendship, Thomas Manner is skeptical. When a stranger from far away offers him friendship, Thomas Manner is intrigued. His ship, quite literally, has come in. Forgetting the past isn’t the same as healing from the past. When Dandi and her best friend Starla wake up in the park with no recollection of how they got there, Dandi’s only clues come from dark and troubled memories she had long since buried. Sammy and Frankie help the two ladies uncover their missing time, and help reveal whether their recent memories were stolen, or given away freely. In Perverted Realities, Sammy and Frankie went on a dangerous trek to try and find their missing friend, Cree. They weren’t in time to save her, but her death opened up many questions, including just who is the dominant species on Earth. With a group of friends they have been searching for the answers ever since. Little do they know, a new ally is on his way… Cree’s brother has been given just one chance to find the answers of her untimely death and avenge her murder. What happens during his long journey to Arcacia is nothing short of fate in motion. Dragging Wings is the second installment of the Perverted Realities series.
