It is days before Christmas, and something is very wrong. Darkness cover the skies, ash mixes with the snowy ground, and young Melissa lies sick and dying in a hospital bed. Season, a young golden dog desperate to save her from death, embarks on a dangerous and frightening journey through dark forests and fiery mountains to reveal a mystery beyond his comprehension. Battling vicious animals and dark magic, can he survice in order to reveal the strange mystery in the words of his own master? In this inspirational story, even the animals can discover the Christmas miracle.
"A thrilling new twist on the heart-warming story of a dog's odyssey to reunite with his human family. Pollard creates a dark fantasy...with layered references to traditional folklore, Christian symbolism, and an apocalyptic setting...not the sweet and expected tale of a domestic dog alone in the wild...a fast-paced adventure."
"In smooth prose interwoven with the right amount of explication, the plot features dangerous wildlife and harsh natural elements until Season faces his final confrontation...mystical, divine forces at war...a sudden turn that infuses the novel with new life. The fitting conclusion should leave readers of all ages satisfied. Season hopefully has more quests in his future."
