This new fantasy-adventure series from N. D. Wilson, bestselling author of 100 Cupboards, pits a misfit twelve-year-old against a maniacal villain with a deadly vendetta. This one-of-a kind story is must read for fans of Brandon Mull and Soman Chainani, and the start of a thrilling tale from a masterful storyteller.

Sam Miracle's life is made up of dreams, dreams where he's a courageous, legendary hero instead of a foster kid with two bad arms that can barely move. Sometimes these dreams feel so real, they seem like forgotten memories. And sometimes they make him believe that his arms might come alive again.

But Sam is about to discover that the world he knows and the world he imagines are separated by only one thing: time. And that separation is only an illusion. The laws of time can be bent and shifted by people with special magic that allows them to travel through the past, present, and future. But not all of these "time walkers" can be trusted. One is out to protect Sam so that he can accept his greatest destiny, and another is out to kill him so that a prophecy will never be fulfilled. However, it's an adventurous girl named Glory and two peculiar snakes who show Sam the way through the dark paths of yesterday to help him make sure there will be a tomorrow for every last person on earth.

Wow. Just amazing! I really cannot put into words how absolutely astounding this book is. I sat down and did not stop until I finished. Sam is such a wonderful character, and Glory is great also. I loved the twist with Father Tiempo (which is literally Father Time in Spanish.) This is one of the best books I have read for quite a while. The prose of the author is crazy good and sucks you in. I will most certainly be reading the next one!

One of the more creative plots I have read in awhile, though I think it could be confusing for some.

OH MAN! This was such a good book!! The plot was cool, the characters were cool, the action was cool, the snakes were cool, and the villain was cool!! I just wish Glory was a little less bossy, but she will probably grow out of it. Can't wait for book 2!
