When 14-year-old Char¬lie Blake wakes up sweat¬ing and gasp¬ing for air in the mid¬dle of the night, he knows it is hap¬pen¬ing again. This time he wit¬nesses a bru¬tal mur¬der. He's afraid to tell any¬one. No one would believe him ... because it was a dream. Just like the one he had four years ago - the day before his dad died. Char¬lie doesn't know why this is hap¬pen¬ing.

Our customer reviews

Maybe I wasn't in the mood for an adventure quest. But this book didn't really keep my attention. I found myself skimming a lot of the story and focusing only on the action parts, or just some of the dialogue. Kind of like what I do when I watch my soap opera - fast forward all the parts I don't care for, and watch only the dramatic storylines that are unfolding that I care to know about. It wasn't that this story wasn't well written, or well paced. It was the content of the story that just didn't grab me fully. I didn't really latch on to any particular character, which is a pity, since that seems to be my routine as a reader. I connect with a character, and I immerse myself into the storyline through their eyes. But there was no one in this story that grabbed my attention enough for me to make that needed connection, so I was very detached from this novel. That being said, don't dismiss this adventure. I can see Harry Potter and Percy Jackson fans really gobbling this up and loving it.show more

Charlie Blake has had a rough life. After losing both parents, moving from foster home to foster home, 10 year old Charlie comes to stay with Jacob. Living with Jacob, brings nightmares. Charlie's first day at school is not much better, until he meets Alex, an outspoken girl he befriends. The prologue was what made me want to read this book it sounded so awesome and it was! This fast-paced novel had fantasy, mythology, action and adventure. It was a unique story. The characters were enjoyable and relatable. I liked Alex a lot, she stands up to the kid that bullied Charlie. Alecia Stone did an fantastic job! I got into the story. It was a quick fun read. I'm excited to see what happens in the next book. This is a must read! Thank you to Centrinian Publishing and NetGalley for providing me the copy!show more
