I was hooked from the beginning. The main characters John and Pete (aka Wrongy) had
an instantaneous bond. Manjucus the soul-stealing cown is the ultimate creepy villain.
The story had it all adventure, mystery, suspense and gore. I don't want to give away any
spoilers, but there was definitely a twist in the story that I didn't see coming. I enjoyed this
story and I can hardly wait to read the next book.
A PART OF THE STORY ! AND SOME PARTS SLOW YOU BACK DOWN AND
LET'S YOUR HEART RATE GET BACK TO NORMAL JUST IN TIME TO
TAKE OFF AGAIN.
What I read of the book came across as an engaging outline of a yet-to-be-written project and probably needed the hand of an old fashion publishing editor to send the author back to their word processor a few more times.
The author has obvious potential but some craftsman issues made the project seem done in a rush-to-publish way instead of seasoned and fully professional.
A story and project well worth some more editorial refinement.
Johnny Marsh is a teen with an insatiable curiosity about the things most kids run from. The day he decides to go public with his fascination for the supernatural by offering his services as an investigator, he meets Peter Wright, who just happens to be tormented in his dreams by an evil clown. It soon becomes apparent that Peter's dreams are more than just the product of an overactive imagination. As Johnny & Peter delve deeper into the horrifying reality behind the dreams, they uncover a centuries old evil and a group who believes it is Johnny's destiny to defeat that evil. This is one carnival ride you do not want to miss.
Follow the daring and frightening adventure of Johnny Marsh and his friend, Peter Wright (nick named Wrongy) as their search for the truth leads them into dangerous territory, where a malevolent presence lurks at every turn.
The menacing Manjucus terrorises Pete and John in their dreams, knowing their weaknesses and using them to lure the boys into its evil grasp.
John and Pete's investigation uncovers this four thousand year old creature, and discovers that it has been destroying lives for many, many years.
With plenty of plot twists and an ending that will leave you breathless, Dream Raider will have you on the edge of your seats and eager to continue the thrilling journey in book number two.
