Format: Paperback
Behold the Eye: Braumaru is a delightful and wholesome adventure! The story is filled with fun and suspense. The characters will remind you of friends you have known. The thoughts and language are delightfully typical of young teens. When I set this book down at night, I thought about what might happen next....I looked forward to my next chance to continue my reading. This, to me, is one sign of a well written book. This book is written for children, but I (an adult) enjoyed every minute of it. I cannot wait to read the next book! I would highly recommend this book.

I am positive that most of us have awakened one morning wishing that the dream we had the night before was real, or that you could go back to a place you had visited in a dream. Maybe you can, you just haven't tapped into that untrained ability... Behold the Eye: Braumaru, by Veronica Tabares, is the first book I have read that is based on dream travel, and I certainly recommend it as a great read. With the main character a sixth grade girl, I would place the target audience as 4th through 8th graders. However, it is really for anyone who's dreamed of dream travel, or enjoys fiction with a captivating plot. I, a collegiate male, can prove that for I am waiting impatiently for books two and three to be released. Make sure you add this book (and the next two) to your library, whether public, private, or personal.

This book has everything to keep the reader interested, mystery, suspense, and great characters. It is always great to find a book that will keep your interest and make you want to read more. This is a book for children, but adults will enjoy it also. The writer is able to help the reader remember their childhood, where you are only limited by your imagination.

I can't wait to read the next book and see what happens to Vicki, Shanti, and Micah in the land of Braumaru.

Two distinctly different lives and stories play out in the book. As the story progresses, you can't help but continue to turn the pages. When will Micah discover his gift? Why is Vickie the only one in the group of girls who notices strange details around them? Will her friends think she is crazy? Read this wonderful book to find out. Behold the Eye: Braumaru is guaranteed to leave you asking for more!

My fifth grade class begged me daily to hear the next chapter of Behold the Eye: Braumaru. The mystery of this collision of worlds in a daring time travel adventure isn't revealed until the end of the book. Cleverly you'll be transported back and forth in time, and when the characters from the different time dimensions finally meet their relationships are solved. Because the last chapter leaves a few loose ends we're eager to read the next book in this trilogy. I highly recommend Behold the Eye for school kids of all ages and lovers of science fiction.

I absolutely LOVED this book!! I usually have a hard time sticking to one book all the way through, but I couldnt put this one down! The story-lines were so vividly written, that I felt as if I were actually a part of the book. I can't wait to read the rest of the series!!

Format: Hardcover
As Micah came of age at 15, in the land of Braumaru, he finally finds his gift, as did others before him. Micah Zomorah however, had no idea that his dreams might have anything to do with his gift and at the beginning, he ignored them and categorized them as merely fantastic dreams. When he realizes that his dreams are his gift, that he indeed is a dream traveler, this discovery sets him upon an adventure that will captivate and capture the imagination of all who read it.

On another plane and place within this book, the reader meets 6th graders, Vickie and her friends, Karen, Cathy, and Tricia. These four girls find themselves one day on the playground bored to tears, so they decide to become rich and famous by writing a book. Though there is a bit of a hard time deciding on a topic to write the book on, the four girls finally settle on a book which would be factual and would be about actual encounters with ghosts and goblins. This of course proves harder than they expected, but still they continue trying to write the book. As their work is ongoing , surprising things begin to happen to Vickie. One day much to her surprise, Vicki realizes that the girls have a special power of dreaming and they turn their focus from the book to developing their dream power, if only to see where it might lead them.

But, unbeknownst to all involved, while the girls and Micah are trying to wrap their minds around what is happening to them, there is nearby an "evil one" who is trying desperately to find the secret of dream travel. This person is evil in that he dreams of returning to a past world and gaining the power of king, a power he feels is his birthright. His intentions upon becoming king are not good and this is a worry for the girls and Micah when they finally do figure him out.
