About the Book

WHAT IF YOUR WHOLE LIFE WAS A LIE?

One Planet.

Two Worlds.

Population: Human … 7 billion.
Others … unknown.

When 14-year-old Char­lie Blake wakes up sweat­ing and gasp­ing for air in the mid­dle of the night, he knows it is hap­pen­ing again. This time he wit­nesses a bru­tal mur­der. He’s afraid to tell any­one. No one would believe him … because it was a dream. Just like the one he had four years ago – the day before his dad died.

Char­lie doesn’t know why this is hap­pen­ing. He would give any­thing to have an ordi­nary life. The prob­lem: he doesn’t belong in the world he knows as home.

He belongs with the others.

My Review

Rating: (4 / 5)

Is it perfect? No, but the flaws didn’t distract that much from the story. Part of them can be explained by the fact that the story was written in British English and style. Even when I stumbled on word usage and structure, I kept reading because I wanted to find out what happened.

The novel ended with a cliffhanger, but that’s okay. Some tales need more than one book and this is one of them. Given the amount of detail and the length and depth of the story, the author brought it to a logical conclusion.

I am still suspicious of the good fortune in the end because it seems too perfect given the previous events. If anything, that was the point I predicted something before it happened. There were also a few poorly excuted statements of foretelling.

Still it reminded my of the Lord of the Rings. I will buy the rest of books if only so I can have a satisfying conclusion to the tale with all the adventurous ups and downs in between.
