Publisher's Summary

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.

A flex of your imagination.

interesting story concept that gets lost halfway through. narrator does a good job, and a fun ride that I'd take again.

A great read

Bothe the beginning and end are reminiscent of M.L. Foreman's Adventures Wanted. The body though has enough twists, turns and puzzles to keep the reader thoroughly involved.

Great for all ages

My kids all loved this book, ages 9, 10, 11 and 13 (girls and boys). I also enjoyed it. The story was very well written and kept your attention. We listened to it while road tripping through Europe.

The only thing I didn't like was the occasional use of words like 'damn' and 'hell', which isn't necessary for kids books.

Amazing story!

I wish The Lord’s name weren’t taken in vain so much. The audio performance was nearly flawless.
