Description

Twelve-year-old Joshua Cooper's grandpa has always warned him about the dangers of lightning. But Joshua never put much stock in his grandpa's rumblings as anything more than the ravings of an old man with a vast imagination. Then one night, when Joshua and his best friend are home alone during a frightful storm, Joshua learns his grandpa was right. A bolt of lightning strikes his house and whisks away his best friend--possibly forever. To get him back, Joshua must travel the Lightning Road to a dark place that steals children for energy. But getting back home and saving his friend won't be easy, as Joshua must face the terrifying Child Collector and fend off ferocious and unnatural beasts intent on destroying him. In this world, Joshua possesses powers he never knew he had, and soon, Joshua's mission becomes more than a search for his friend. He means to send all the stolen children home--and doing so becomes the battle of his life.show more
