While summering in a New England campground, mind reading thirteen-year-old twins, Meghan and Colin Jacoby, discover they have until the rising of the Blue Moon to help save the life of a young man, whose caravan is forced to flee through a magical portal to another world, without him.

In the process, they have a dark awakening when their own simple, normal world, begins to collide with the complexities of the magical world. The twins face unimaginable dangers, which thrust them into an unexpected choice: to live as they always have or to learn the truth about their past and enter a world that is equally thrilling and terrifying.

More importantly, however, is whether they even have a choice, or will destiny not only force this new magical reality upon them, but require them to sacrifice everyone they love in doing so?


Wow. Just wow. This was a fast-paced read and a book that I desperately wish had existed when I was a young teen. Not only was it an amazingly well-written story, but it reminded me of other great fantasies I have read over the years. That's not to say it was copying other books, it was just reminiscent of books like Something Wicked This Way Comes. Throughout the entire book I thought it was a great read, but the ending blew me away and left me wanting more. I can't wait to read the second book! a Rafflecopter giveaway
