Publisher's Summary

Eli hoped to do his time and get back to living life outside prison.

However, that hope faded when he watched a prisoner rip a guard’s heart out and toss the body over the railing onto a funeral pyre of burning mattresses. The landscape of the prison begins to change as more and more strange characters strive for dominance in the anarchy that follows. 

Eli and his new friend, Tay, must navigate the chaos as the gods of the Aztec creation story emerge over the next 12 hours on the block.

Supernatural Events in a Prison

Strange things happen when a man with unusual tattoos lands in prison. The author has created new folklore in this memorable story...distinct character voices, good descriptions, and a dash of humor, all voiced by a versatile narrator...you'll want to listen again.

Crazy night on the cell block

There's trouble afoot in the old penitentiary tonight, and multi-racial new best buds Eil and Taye have to find a way to survive the paranormal revolt occurring right before their lying eyes. This story is a sort of a mix between Quentin Tarantino's From Dusk 'til Dawn and Shawshank Redemption, with lots of pop culture references. The dialogue is intriguing and full of back and forth, balanced between vivid descriptions of the havoc being wreaked as a ragtag crew must band together to make it out alive. Some of the material is mildly homo-erotic, and I could have probably done without a lot of the racial epithets bashing white skinned folk. All in all, an entertaining audio book with a great narration to boot.
