Bonhomme Sept-Heures

Bonhomme sept-heures new 2by Evan May

Paranormal mystery

The darkness with a smile in it

Something is killing the children of Lac de Thé, a tiny Quebec town.  No-one sees it.  It leaves no evidence.  The only suspect is a character from a centuries-old folk tale, and the only safety appears to depend on following the story’s ancient rule: all children must be indoors at home by seven o’clock.

Now, a mysterious government agent has summoned Adam Godwinson, former priest and book dealer, to help bring an end to the deaths, but the consequences of his last brush with the unthinkable lie heavily on him, and it may be Adam who needs rescuing most of all if anything is going to be done about Bonhomme Sept-Heures.

What happens when boy meets girl but girl doesn’t notice boy because she shares a body with another boy?

When he’s not gorging on desserts, calming his hypochondriacal mum, or getting bone-crunching hugs from his warrior dads, Virj Ofreesin spends his time writing a fantasy novel about Frayda, the elegant half of the two-headed Dwa. Life is adequately mediocre until he learns the Dwa are gravely ill, and a mystical cure grows on a planet between two infamously warring worlds. Ignoring all warnings of danger, Virj embarks on the journey to be Frayda’s real-life hero, armed only with his stylus, and a boingy-haired nuisance who decides to tag along.

When his son, Nicholas, suddenly reappears in his life under tragic circumstances, Alex doesn’t know if he can take it.
