“Deadly secrets have been buried in the Cascade mountain wilderness for centuries. Hidden. Out of sight and out of mind.
Warren Wilkes, age 13, doesn't like what a greedy housing developer has done to his peaceful mountain community, so he vandalizes the developer's property, flees into the wild, and stumbles upon an ancient human skeleton revealed by torrential rain. More than old bones have been exposed, however, and the curious artifact Warren finds makes him question his own identity, and his connection to an ancient terror. A terror destined to rise again and annihilate all that Warren loves. He must fight or see his whole world destroyed."
I LOVED this book. It was amazing. Yes, I’'m a science fiction geekgirl. But, with a lot of science fiction, you lose a sense of reality, or you lose the personal side. Things are often not just new wave, but ‘future’-wave. This book is, alien invasion meets Native American folklore, meets campout nightmare.
Translation for people who don’t speak nerd: It rocked.
It had everything that makes a good story. Even non-science fiction people will love this read. Another thing I have to say, it was FANTASTICALLY written. I have the sequel already, I can’t wait to read it.
