When a writer you don’t know asks you for a blurb, you get a bit tense, because you can’t anticipate the quality of the writing. As I read Cracked Sky I soon relaxed and enjoyed the very fine story. Do yourself a favor, put Ben Eads up on your fridge, underline the name, then buy everything he writes. The quality of his writing is first rate.
— Gene O”Neill, Dance of the Blue Lady

Reeling from the loss of their only child, Stephen and Shelley Morrison learn that her killer has been found dead. What they don’t know is that his agenda goes far deeper than the grave. Beyond the storm, beyond the crack in the sky—where their daughter lies trapped with The Lost Ones—something is using Stephen and Shelley’s agony to fulfill its goals: Terrorize. Consume. Destroy.

About the Author

When a writer’s work leaves you angry at yourself that you’ve never read it before, and filled with the determination to never let that be the case again, it’s the highest form of compliment. Ben Eads is one of those writers. With Cracked Sky, I found myself at turns moved and terrified. This guy knows his horror, and pulls off the deft trick of utilizing genre conventions while simultaneously adding his own unique twists to the mix. Get in on the ground floor of Eads’ work, folks. His career is destined to be a long one.
— Kealan Patrick Burke, Bram Stoker (R) Award-winning author of The Turtle Boy, Kin, and Jack & Jill
Eads created a sick and dark dream world. Reading it was like visiting the most twisted of Wonderlands. Eads’ other world is genuinely horrifying, and even more disturbing than Joe Hill’s Christmasland. That’s truly a messed up and lovely thing to see.

Absolutely brilliant. The final showdown will distort your very existence.
— Joe Mynhardt, Crystal Lake Publishing
Taking some inspiration from King but very much his own writer, Eads brings the reader a compelling story of a family torn apart by events beyond their control.
