When There’s Nowhere To Go But Too Far..
With his sole guardian turned stalker and the police on the wrong side, 19-year-old Night has little choice but to enter into an elaborate ruse in exchange for refuge. Despite his oppressive, isolated past, fulfilling his dying mentor’s grand expectations is achievable for prodigious Night, but threats and temptations abound. As Night’s power increases, will he be able to control his feral impulses, and more importantly, will he care?
A Word from the Author
Whatever The Impulse is a dark tale that follows an untapped prodigy, Night Shannien, from total obscurity, to teen idol, in the mid 1980’s pop-music era. It begins in the isolation of coastal Oregon where locals know Night as the deaf bartender who works at the Emerald Shore, a bar-restaurant owned by his father. But why Night is forced to pretend to be a deaf-mute is not the only secret his father keeps from him.
It takes a tenacious teen girl who visits the restaurant and his father’s own girlfriend to blow apart all the lies and launch Night into a new life, a world her doesn’t understand–as a fugitive–and the person who he literally dreamed could give him a normal life offers him everything but. Finally, with a growing list of impossible challenges, new threats, and his past still hunting him down, Night falls back on the only guideline that makes sense… Whatever The Impulse.
