A new nail-biter from the 2001EPPIE Award Winner for Horror.

A finalist for the 2002 EPPIE!

The island comes and goes...but the evil is always present...

Jackson and Sabrina, the central characters from the Eppie Award-Winning Butterfly House, reunite to fight a thousand-year-old god who won't die and a group of townspeople who may know more than they're saying about the island that isn't always there.

In the depths unfathomable, something terrible moved. The breath of the undead one who had no name, the formless wind beneath the waters that caused no waves, stirred to a semblance of life in silence. Soon...soon...soon the sinews would begin to form again, soon, none too soon for he that was and is and will be once again.

But for now there was only unseen breath and the stirrings of thought to mark the return of the one they called Tocayo-a, the Namesake, lest by calling him his name they summon him again.

Summoned or not, the undead one had vowed he would return.

Now the first suspicion of that vow's fulfillment wafted on the currents of the deep.

Intangible, inaudible, invisible currents of beginning consciousness...and memories...of a time before time...

What people are saying about NOBODY TOLD THE WIND...

"Once again T. K. Sheils demonstrates his considerable story-telling ability, combining Mayan legend with the paranormal to create a grim and deadly tale. Sheils' story succeeds on a number of levels. His prose mesmerizes the reader, slowly revealing an ever-growing horror. Other readers, seeking only a story that delivers an entertaining plot, will be riveted by the twists and turns of this careful narrative. With compelling characterizations, a well-crafted plot that the reader won't be able to put down, and the perfect touch of levity at just the right moments, Nobody Told The Wind comes very highly recommended."—Cindy Penn, WordWeaving Reviews

"Fast-paced and creepy!...Sabrina and Jackson make an exceptional paranormal investigating team, similar to a reverse Scully and Mulder from the X-Files. Sabrina has seen it all and does not have a hard time believing, while Jackson tends to be more skeptical at first. Toss in a sprinkling of sexual tension between the two, and you have a stunning story. Prepare for a fast-paced and creepy story full of twists, mystery and action. Mystery and horror fans alike will adore Nobody Told The Wind."—Tracy Farnsworth, EBook Nook
