Publisher's Summary

Thirteen-year-old Tyler Price is struggling with his parents’ divorce as he pinballs between their apartments in Manhattan. One day after school a troubled old man sits next to him on a city bus. His voice filled with fear, the man says, “the awakening” has begun, and reveals that Tyler is the only person who can stop it. The man thrusts a satchel at Tyler, telling him to never let it go, minutes before he is killed in a traffic accident while fleeing police. Against the backdrop of a series of strange happenings in New York City - the disappearance of a packed tour bus - Tyler and his school friend, Ella Shaw, become fugitives hunted by police who want the satchel. 

The worn leather bag contains a notebook with passages in an ancient language and a pair of old goggles similar to those worn by stone cutters who carved the city's gargoyles. As Tyler and Ella work to unravel the mystery behind the old man's foretelling, they determine that Tyler is a descendant of a stone cutter who’d worked on most of New York's buildings. Tyler's ancestor had opposed a stone cutter who practiced the Black Arts and put an apocalyptic curse on the city and the world. With powerful forces pursuing them, Tyler and Ella battle time before the curse, which encompasses the human race, is complete.

Childrens book poorly written

This book tries to jump on the Harry Potter and fantastic beasts bandwagon. However it’s poorly written, even kids wouldn’t be able to suspend belief fore this one.
Not Rick’s genre and far from his best work.
