Into the Beyond - Part 1: Fated - Paul James Keyes

 The Beyond exists outside of time...

few are fated to enter.

High school sophomore Lewis Graham is awakened by a strange creature appearing through a portal in his bedroom.  The creature looks like a doll, dressed in a little button-down suit, and calls himself Mr. Gray.  He says he is from the realm of immortals - a place called the Beyond - and that he is a Fate, like the three Fates of Greek and Roman mythology.  Mr. Gray says he has come to lead Lewis to his destiny, and that it is imperative he does what he’s told.

Mr. Gray insists on being taken to school with Lewis to help guide him through his day, but when Lewis follows Mr. Gray’s instructions, some very bad things start happening to the people around him.  Lewis is forced to question what sort of destiny the creature really has in store for him.

Mr. Gray claims no one else can see or hear him, but when a Native American girl at school sneaks Lewis a note containing three simple words, he is launched down a frightening and thought-provoking path:

Into the Beyond - Part 2: Far From Human - Paul James Keyes

The Beyond exists outside of time,

and its threats are far from human.

Part 2 of the Into the Beyond series brings new meaning to the term ‘self-fulfilling prophecy’ as unwitting hero Lewis Graham uses the riverbank of the Beyond to travel back up the river of time and re-live the events of Part 1 from a whole new perspective.

Armed only with a prophetic journal written by other versions of himself who failed at the journey ahead, Lewis must secretly help his slightly-younger self escape from the Agares - a sinister enemy that wishes to erase not only Lewis, but all of humanity by harvesting the energy of our universe‘s very creation.

A brief warning in the journal’s pages fails to provide peace of mind.

When the Agares are near, time stands still around you.  Pretend to freeze, and whatever you do, don’t forget:

They always come in pairs.


Into the Beyond - Part 3: Fires of Heaven - Paul James Keyes

The Beyond exists outside of time...

The fires of heaven burn across the ages.

Angels wept the day the heavens burned.  The mortal realm stood in awe as the glow of the flames bled through into our sky.  We laid out on blankets, pointing up at the shimmering glow, unknowing.  If only our eyes had been aimed lower, perhaps we would have seen that the terrors held to the fringes no longer.
Josie continued to watch the shadow in silence for some time, certain that it was no more than their wild imaginations playing tricks on their eyes... that is... until Channie whimpered a fearful gasp and the too-tall form slowly receded into the forest.
