As his heart pounds like a drummer, Blake is in a race against the clock to discover the secret "Endymion Spring" has been yearning to resolve to him before his life is halted by the person in the darkness. But, the outcome of the delve is worse than Blake could have imagined. Blake Winters: Endymion Spring: Diana Bentley: Jolyon Fall: Sneak Preview There it was. A small square of leather lying against the endless reams of fine white paper. He reached down to pick it up. His heart leaped into his throat. The book opened not to the map he had been following earlier, but to the black partition in the center of the volume. The ghostly message was still there, but it had changed ever so slightly. His blood ran cold. His torchlight trembled over the awful words:I am waiting.
Suddenly, the shadows seemed more menacing, more terrifying, and he began to run. Blindly, he dashed through the surrounding rooms, no longer following the map in the book,but a path of his own destination."(316) Why A Phenomenal Scene?
