Five Nights to the Crimson Moon
13-year-old Corbin endures school bullying, low self-esteem and ‘being different’. To make things worse, he accidentally causes his widowed mother to be sucked into the Dreamstone, a crystal with power over people’s nightmares. Terror strikes when Gol is invaded, the Dreamstone is seized, and Gol’s children are kidnapped as ransom against an uprising. Forced into the wilderness, the scared city kid stumbles across the very capable 13-year-old Bridie. Together, they may have what it takes to right wrongs, but time is running out. In five nights the crimson full moon will rise, threatening the existence of the Dreamstone.
Reviews
Publishers Weeekly

“Renfrey’s spellbinding fantasy adventure, set in the high-tech land of Gol, follows 13-year-old Corbin, a bullying victim spooked by his dreams, as he uses his telekinetic ability to rescue his mother after she is trapped in the Dream-stone, a crystal with the power to control nightmares.

“Meanwhile, traitorous former Gol Guard Ripho seizes the Dreamstone, kidnaps the children of Gol, recruits a ruthless army, and escapes to his fortress, Howling Mountain, to consolidate power and destroy the Dreamstone when the crimson moon next appears. With time ticking away, Corbin — who receives a little help along the way — sets out to save his mother, the Dreamstone, and the world.

“The plot builds with fast-paced twists—electro snowstorms, mind-talking, daring rescues—as the sensible hero takes control of his destiny. Chief among the book’s many strengths are its well- developed characters, who will feel familiar to readers.”
