By March of Owen Edmonds’s senior year, eleven students at Masonville High School have committed suicide. Amid the media frenzy and chaos, Owen tries to remain levelheaded―until he endures his own near-death experience and wakes to a distressing new reality.
The people around him suddenly appear to be shackled and enslaved.
Owen frantically seeks a cure for what he thinks are crazed hallucinations, but his delusions become even more sinister. An army of hideous, towering beings, unseen by anyone but Owen, are preying on his girlfriend and classmates, provoking them to self-destruction.
Owen eventually arrives at a mind-bending conclusion: he’s not imagining the evil―everyone else is blind to its reality. He must warn and rescue those he loves . . . but this proves to be no simple mission. Will he be able to convince anyone to believe him before it’s too late?
Owen’s heart-pounding journey through truth and delusion will force him to reconsider everything he believes. He both longs for and fears the answers to questions that are quickly becoming too dangerous to ignore.
Wow. What a powerful book for anyone but especially of the target audience of high schoolers. This is a book I will recommend my daughter read. I am sure there is more truth in this book then we want to admit.
Laura did a great job of hooking the reader from the beginning and never letting up. I couldn’t wait the moment when Owen would see things around him and how he would react. I think his reaction was true to how most of us would react if we saw the spiritual warfare that is actually taking place all around us.
This is a well-written book with a powerful and eye-opening message.
