In Allen Rubens’ new thriller, “Stalk” (published by AuthorHouse), a teenage girl sets out to fight a seemingly futile battle of good versus evil in an attempt to stop a Native American demon from taking her sister.
Rancho, Oklahoma, was meant to be a new beginning for 16-year-old Kate and her 8-year-old sister, Jenny. Instead, it turns out to be the beginning of the end. After their mother's death, Kate vows to protect her younger sister with her life. She is about to get a chance to do just that when a seemingly chance encounter between Jenny and a suspicious little boy lead the young siblings into the bowels of darkness. Something evil is stalking Jenny, but it must go through Kate to get her.
An excerpt from “Stalk”:
“She looked at Jenny long and hard. Her job was to protect her and here she was dreaming a dream as if she didn’t. Once she was sure her eyes could see she closed them to erase what had been there. She lowered her head back on the pillow and knew all was well. Tonight was just a nightmare. What she didn’t know was three days from now it would be considered a picnic.”
Rubens believes readers will connect with the powerful theme of family bonds in "Stalk," and he compares his book to the popular titles in the genre. “It’s a non-stop battle between good and evil, with evil taking on more than it can handle,” he says. “It’s amazing the resolve of a 16-year-old girl when she knows she’s the only one who can save her sister. Like in ‘The Hunger Games,’ a teenage girl throws her life on the line for the ones she loves. It’s always exciting when the hunted starts to hunt.”
