Descrição

Artifacts. Miseries. Mysteries . . .

From the moment Horace F. Andrews sees the sign from the bus-a sign with his own name on it-everything changes. The sighting leads him underground, to the House of Answers, a hidden warehouse full of mysterious objects. But there he finds only questions. What is this curious place? Who are the strange, secretive people who entrust him with a rare and immensely powerful gift? And what is he to do with it?

Horace quickly discovers that nothing is ordinary anymore. From the sinister man lurking around every corner to the gradual mastery of his newfound abilities to his encounters with Chloe-a girl who has an astonishing talent of her own-Horace follows a path that puts him in the middle of a centuries-old conflict between two factions.

Horace's journey leads him and Chloe deep into a place where every decision they make could have disastrous consequences. Most important, it links Horace to the Box of Promises and a future he never saw coming.

With an action-packed blend of science fiction and fantasy, Ted Sanders creates a world where everything is more than it seems and where friendship and loyalty have the greatest power of all.

    I listened to the audio book. It was LONG but enjoyable. Horace stumbles into a warehouse full of interesting objects. Turns out the objects have power and he's stumbled into a battle. He learns how to harness the power of the box and meets a girl with a dragonfly. Together they face life threatening situations. A good twist at the end sets up for the next book in the series.

    Though it started a bit slow for me, I was riveted after the first 100 pages or so. The characters were interesting enough to keep me going until the plot revved up. I hate to make this comparison as it's been so overused, but this fantasy, of the many I've read, gave me the most similar feeling of excitement in reading that Harry Potter did. I wanted to drop everything and keep reading, and I didn't want it to end. There are some parallels to Rowling's characters, but Sanders has very much created his own world and inhabitants. It's more the feeling that is similar: of well-drawn characters, both main and supporting and an unpredictable plot. I LOVED this story and can't wait for the sequel, "The Harp and the Ravenvine" due out in March 2016.
