Colt Humboldt and the Close of Death
Twelve-year-old Texan Colt Humboldt must guide the unusual Alesone and her little brother Peter on a journey through a magical, dangerous Scotland to capture three treasures which will empower Alesone and Peter to return home and save their imperiled family. But the treasures are protected by terrifying creatures determined to stop the kids from succeeding...even if it means Colt's death. More
Enter the exciting world of Colt and his friends in this harrowing adventure that promises very poor odds for continued good health.
When twelve-year-old Colt Humboldt’s dad drags the two of them from perfectly good Texas to ancient Scotland for a fresh start, Colt knows he’s doomed to a summer as the “new kid”. No friends, no fun, no life as he knows it.
That very first night, the peculiar Alesone and her more peculiar little brother Peter crawl out of Colt’s closet, begging for his help to save their family from a horrible fate.
Fortunately, the secret for doing so is hidden inside a mysterious book.
Unfortunately, this book demands that our ragged trio first journey across Scotland and capture three treasures—treasures fiercely protected by a shadowy, treacherous world determined to see Colt fail…
…preferably by death.
But if Colt and his new friends can survive a horror novel come-to-life, defeat a madman and his minions, win over a disagreeable folklore legend, and discover the shocking reason why Alesone and Peter are just so odd… well, the next two treasures won’t come so easily.
