About this title

Synopsis:

Driven by his desire for revenge and empowered by the supernatural entity that calls itself the OtherSyde, Robert Obst, a dreamy reader of science fiction harrassed and tormented in school, sets out to hurt his enemies

From Publishers Weekly:

Despite some moments straining for cosmic significance, Straczynski ( Demon Night ) delivers a generally compelling tale of malevolence unleashed. When 16-year-old Chris Martino moves with his mother to Los Angeles from New Jersey, he inadvertently befriends nerdy classmate Roger "Horseface" Obst. Chris writes Roger a note in lemon juice--"invisible ink"--but later a different message appears, and it becomes obvious that a terrifyingly omnipotent force is about to ensnare Roger in its net of darkness. While Roger senses an opportunity for revenge against his student tormentors, Chris resists this evil presence, which identifies itself as Othersyde; therein lies the book's most forceful conflict. As the terror escalates, a policewoman and a sympathetic teacher become involved with the evil around them--and with each other. When sticking to the demonic events and the increasing bewilderment of his recognizable characters, Straczynski holds us transfixed. Chilling scenes that accelerate the well-crafted narrative to its grisly conclusion compensate for occasionally overblown prose. These excesses aside, fans of horror yarns can look forward to this nonstop read.
