Peter has always been told “the stories” like every child in the Caribbean. The tales of the ancients bound to the Silk Cotton tree, the supernatural monsters of myths and legends whispered in hush tones lest the speaker be heard and meet with an untimely fate. Then the day arrived, when the woman who had been his “mother”is struck down by something that could only have come from his worst nightmares. Now Peter’s once ordered world crashes into stark reality. Grace Silk Cotton, the legendary supernatural Churlie Queen and enforcer between the worlds, is his real mother. The monsters are real, he is one, and the prophetic fight for supremacy, survival, the stories, and SILK COTTON has begun.
