When Eric Jansen takes a seat behind his drums, every girl in the place takes notice. Not that he’s surprised. He’s had decades to practice. Still, there’s that other thing …
He’s an alien. Offworlder. Take me to your leader, fall from the sky, space invading, phoning home, UFO jockey. A swipe of the tattoo on his arm will reveal his true form which locals call Mothman, a winged creature formed of ashen gray skin and glowing red eyes. Eric is one of the last of his dwindling, offworld species.
So when the recently deceased of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, start walking and talking, the Men in Black mark Eric as suspect number one. It will be up to Eric and his inner circle to solve the mystery before the black suits lock him up and throw away the key.
A fun read, Wrong Side of the Grave is a fast-action Teen Sci-Fi Mystery with a paranormal twist.
Parent Approved: Contains no profanity or sexual content.
“You look at me as if you know me.”
“I like to think I do.” I keep it light and flash her a flirty grin as I continue to be clever. “I’m not lying when I say that from the first moment I saw you, I wanted to get you alone.”
Kendall seems amused by my response. Her lips tighten to a thin line, pulling up in the corners. She turns from me but keeps her hold on my hand, pulling me a few slow steps away from the door.
“Honestly, I don’t know why I bother trying to make these connections,” she says. She doesn’t look at me while she says it, but I’m looking at her. She walks like she’s dancing. Her movements are so graceful they nearly defy gravity.
I watch as Kendall’s blond curls bounce against her back with each careful step around the mud. I watch as her arms swing open for balance. Her pale skin catches the moonlight so that it glistens.
“I suppose it’s my age showing,” she continues, not paying a bit of attention to me. “I’ve become a granny rambling on about who’s related to who. I need to learn that it doesn’t matter in the scheme of things. Whether we have met before is of no consequence this close to the end.”
I laugh. That’s just like the old ones. Slipping up when they think they’re safe; when they think they’re in control. To her, I’m already dead.
Praise for the Book
"Butler delivers a notable mystery/thriller. Dramatic tension is wielded expertly ... Butler revives the moribund with this fresh take on aliens, vampires, and the undead." ~ Kirkus Reviews
"I'm trying to find something negative to say but I just can't... there isn't a single thing I didn't like about this book. I also love the fact that it's suitable for every age group with no profanity and no sexual content. I highly recommend it!" ~ Suzy Turner
"This book has the same fast pace, well developed characters and witty dialogue as Bryna Butler's other books. If you like paranormal and/or sci-fi, this book is for you. It has it all. I am not your average YA reader. In fact I am not a YA--a bit older than that, but these are the kinds of books I enjoy reading. Imaginative and adventurous with no profanity and no graphic sexual situations. Highly recommended read for all ages." ~ Matilda
