“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.”
