After Rachel, the main character in Evarance: Rise of the Shadows by Bonnie M. Clark, finds a beautiful bracelet that once belonged to her aunt, she travels to the world of Calim when she sleeps. It is a magical world in which firefoxes talk, and you can meet horses made out of mist or water. But all is not well in this dream world: a darkness is spreading, and for some reason evil as well as good creatures believe that Rachel is connected to that darkness. When Rachel wakes up in the real world, she leaves the world of Calim ... but one day, she does not seem to be able to leave her dreams behind. Her brother and her sister also have weird dreams - are they connected? And will they make a connection between their dreams and their sister falling into a coma?
Evarance: Rise of the Shadows by Bonnie M. Clark is a very enjoyable read, not only for young adults, but for all people who love believable fantasy worlds. This is a world in which dreams and being awake are combined in a fascinating way, and while there are quite a few important characters, it is very easy to know who's who. I was glad that the last few lines of Evarance: Rise of the Shadows by Bonnie M. Clark give you hope that there will be more happening in future books. After all, one or the other question remains unanswered, and after the journey with those characters, you'd definitely want to return to another journey with them.
From the Inside Flap
"Wake up! Just wake up already!" Rachel's head screamed as the monstrous black creature approached, growling low and viciously, his lips curled up showing razor sharp teeth dripping with saliva and blood.
"You have nowhere left to run, little girl," he snarled with a wicked grin, crouching low, readying for the attack.
Rachel took one step backward before her back pressed hard against the solid rock wall. She closed her eyes tightly, waiting for the blow that would certainly end her life.
There was a time, before the horrible nightmares began, that she found solace in her dreams. To Rachel, her dreams were an exciting escape from the boring life she once lived. But now, more than anything, she just wanted the dream she had become trapped infor so long to end. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Come along with Rachel and find out as you read "Evarance," a well-written and fluid first novel from a very gifted writer. Whether you're a young adult or an adult who is young at heart, this is a great book. I think that, like me, you'll look forward to following Rachel, her family and her new and decidedly interesting friends, as this series progresses.
