In this futuristic thriller, an ordinary man gets caught up in extraordinary circumstances and finds himself on a harrowing adventure that he neither wants nor understands.
Derek Anderson considers himself to be a devoted husband, father, and businessman. He loves his family and is happiest when he is with his wife and daughter. But when a young Psi-Tal places the blue plastic turtle in Derek's hand, his life is turned upside down, as he discovers that the turtle can transport him into a nightmarish realm that Derek comes to refer to as Dreamworld.
While in Dreamworld, Derek learns of his destiny, but when the turtle sends him back to the reality he thought that he knew so well, he finds himself being pursued by a mysterious group of beings called the Watchers.
In a metaphysical race for his life, with the blue plastic turtle in his possession, Derek plunges into a centuries-old secret society that may be his only hope against the deadly enemies who will stop at nothing to get the turtle.

I like books with a lot of depth... books that make you think and get a little better if you come around for a second pass. I'm willing to be patient with an author if I feel like they're going to deliver in the end. This book started a little slow for me, but Ed Gosney delivered in the end. This is the story of a man who is forced into a difficult situation... a man that has to do things he doesn't want to do in order to protect his family. I tend not to read a lot of scifi, but this one has just enough psychological Dreamworld elements to keep me interested. And the characters are the strongest part. Give it a try, and be patient if it seems to start a little slow. It's worth it.
