Fiction and Excerpts [2]

Passenger (Excerpt)

, || Best friends Jack and Conner can't stay away from Marbury. It's partly because of their obsession with this alternate world and the unresolved war that still wages there. But it's also because forces in Marbury—including the darkest of the dark, who were not revealed in The Marbury Lens—are beckoning the boys back in order to save their friends . . . and themselves.

Told through Conner's point of view, "King of Marbury" asks whether Marbury is only in Jack and Conner's minds, or if it might actually be real. You decide.
