It s a great feeling, breaking away from home, school and the restrictions of your childhood years, testing yourself in the world at last. First flight, first love, first job, first holiday alone, first place to call your own. You feel as if anything could happen, and you re prepared for it. You re no longer restless, but flying free. Wait, there s a final test if you can survive it If you can survive the walking dead, the staircreak at night, the ghosts of the past, the treachery of those you trust and love A chilling series of stories of flight and fear.
