Some things are better left alone.
Ivan Stein isn’t sure he can survive seventh grade, let alone middle school. Living in a town known for its poverty and violence, he is regularly bullied along with his best friend, Ollie. But fortunes can change. One day, Ivan finds an old notebook in an abandoned locker at school. Despite a stark warning, he takes the book and unleashes powerful magic he can use to punish his enemies. But demonic forces control the book’s pages—a terrifying evil that will inflict suffering on the good as well as the bad and take his soul as payment.
Come As You Are is supernatural horror reimagined as Young Adult fiction. But don’t be fooled. Its violence will disturb you and its depiction of people living in a gloomy, desolate town without hope will make you cry. Pray that Ivan and his family can survive this dark, perilous journey.

What People Are Saying
“I’ve read the first two books in this series, and I am in awe of how well this author writes. I likened him to Stephen King in terms of talent and storytelling. That’s saying a lot, since I’ve been a devoted King fan for four decades!” –Rebecca Warner, author of Moral Infidelity
“Without a doubt this series is the best conspiracy thriller I have ever read. The action is non-stop, the body count is sky-high, the horror will make the reader jolt and squirm and best of all the hero is one of us, an ordinary guy thrust into an extraordinary situation. This is why this series has to be a movie and reads like one.” –Simon Oneill, author of Magic Is Murder
“No one writes zombies like Ramirez. You always get violence, a wild ride, and great characters. The trilogy is a solid read and not to be missed by lovers of all things zombie.” –Danielle DeVor, author of Sorrow’s Point
