Publisher's Summary

It's bad enough for a teen-age boy to wake up with amnesia, strange burns on his legs, and even stranger nightmares. But when a creepy stranger claiming to be his father tried to remove him from the hospital, his adventure was just beginning - unless, of course, the adventure had already happened.

Enjoyable!

What about Michael Spence’s performance did you like?

Michael Spence's voice was soothing and enjoyable, although not quite right to be narrating from an 18 year old's point of view.

Any additional comments?

Not a bad story, considering it was relatively short. It was written well and flowed easily. Everything was wrapped up nicely in the end, and hope more adventures befall Barry in the future.

And yet disappointment...

Any additional comments?

I bought it mostly because I like Mists of Avalon by the same author. So I expected something good but lighter.

At first I let myself sink into it. Then I've started feeling bored. Leading character was not convincing. So were his relations with others and secondary plots. Then the story had started to be too predictable. Next... I listen to it to the end only because of really nice narration... and because it was the only audiobook I had on my player at that time.

It was a pleasure listening to Michael Spence's voice though. He was very good in changing voices, also when characters speaking with accent. I'd like to hear him again and hopefully in better story.

Good Book

I really wasn't sure where the author was going when I first started to read this book. However I gave it a chance and all the pieces get tied very nicely together as the book concludes. Enjoyable and entertaining read.
