Publisher's Summary

The Nexus is the realm between death and the after-life and has been sealed for centuries. Max Dane, an 11-year-old boy turning 12 on Halloween, may be the only key to opening it.... But should it be opened?
This book series is set within a year span of Max's arrival to Ravencrest, Vermont where the paranormal is the norm. Max has epileptic seizures that cause hallucinations, but his new friends try to convince him he's having psychic visions via the Nexus. Max's visions keep taking him back to Samhain during the middle ages where he meets a tortured soul in the form of an eight-year-old boy named Jack. Max decides he's going to help release Jack from his torment even if it costs him his own sanity. His only chance at doing that is to traverse the Nexus and brave a fierce entity known as the Knightmare. And to traverse the Nexus he must explore mystical and spiritual practices like drumming, meditation and tarot, which launch him not only through the Nexus but on a journey of self-discovery that he may regret.

It's apparent how much time & attention went into this book. The author has done a very good job in looking at the history behind modern traditions in a way that was very entertaining.


Who was your favorite character and why?

Max. Who at nearly 12 might seem a little young to take on the burden of being such a pivotal character. He isn't. He's entertaining and engaging.


Which character – as performed by Ian Cadena – was your favourite?

Max. Great narration all round but this character gets a lot of air time and this is great.


Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

The Author brings us into a world where spiritual beliefs of folklore, myth and ancient culture become every day facts. From page one you feel an urgency that builds and twists to the end. Well developed characters sweep us along in this clever and interesting story.
