“The new kid isn’t afraid, but everyone else should be…” When Alexander Ocean moved to Bentley Middle School, his young rowdy cousin, Jay, warned him that the halls were full of bullies, a crazed ex-Olympic sports coach and other scary stuff that would eat him for breakfast. But on his tenth birthday, a dark voice whispered to his soul. He felt an unspeakable evil pull at his self-control. The influence entered Alexander’s flesh and crept into Alex's mind. He was in danger of having his will swallowed by the deadly darkness. Will Alex regained control, or if he became a destructive puppet of the evil fiend fighting to gain control over his soul. Will Alexander destroy everything close to him, or has evil found the wrong hero?
