Before I go off on a tangent, my whole point here is that I was immediately able to settle into Jimmy's mind. To remind myself of what it was to be a kid. Carefree, unblemished, and totally psyched for a sleep over with friends. Leave it to Lorn to have me so connected to these little boys, after only a few pages. I watched as they ate way too much sugar, listened to (in my opinion) amazing music, and just enjoyed being young. It can't be easy to write characters that are that vivid, in that short a time, but this story proves that it's possible. I caught myself sighing, laughing, and remembering.
Then, all hell broke loose. I can't really say too much because I wouldn't dare take this adventure away from you. I will only say that the title is very apt, and that I didn't expect to feel so terrified. By horror standards, this isn't too over the top. It's not bloody, or overly violent. However, something about that made it that much more visceral for me. When a child is scared? I'm scared. I was scared.
The point I'm trying to make? This story is just over 30 pages, and The Morning Dew brought out more feelings in me than most of the full length books I've read this month. Kudos, sir. More, please?
Read it, feel the terror, taint your sweet childhood memories, you will like it. :D
This is actually a story that I didn't find too short. The length of it was perfect! Read it!
Lorn hits another home run with this one! He captivated my attention from the very first page by bringing back happy childhood memories that I had forgotten. He proceeds to slowly ramp up the creepy factor, letting it sneak up on me until things take off like a thunderclap, leaving me racing to the end to find out what happened next. Like all of his books that I have read, after reading, I shut off my kindle and stared off into space, enjoying and pondering what I just read. Highly recommended!

Ten-yr-old Jimmy Dougal can’t wait for his friends Henry and Mike Carmichael to come over for their sleepover. They’re going to sleep out in the tree house that Jimmy’s dad built and they’re going to have junk food, tunes and games. For a whole night they’ll be on their own. Little do they know that being on their own when the strange storm hits isn’t gong to be fun times at all.
What the flippin’ floppems did I just read? What the heck was that strange storm, where did it come from and what is going on? Told from Jimmy’s POV, three boys are just having some overnight fun and then…boom! Bad times! Very bad times! Danger, Will Robinson, danger! *arm flails* How creepy is that shizzle? Very, I tell you! What do this tale, A Clockwork Orange and Attack of the Killer Tomatoes have in common? You’ll have to read to find out.
