The Dreams of Sara Knight: A Series of Empowerment by Steven Misosky is not at all what I expected. First of all, I was stunned at the amazing cover art even before reading the text about why the author chose that particular image. It definitely artistically embodies the aim of the author for this book to explain the connection between the spiritual and physical aspects of our world. The Dreams of Sara Knight takes the reader on a metaphysical journey with two twin girls, Sara and Kara, as their parents open up the world of dreams, spirituality and living a purposeful life. While the book does touch on Christianity, the author does not make that the focus. It was interesting to see how he took what would be considered by many as New Age religious beliefs and integrated them in with Christianity. I think this book would be really hard to classify as it is not a typical paranormal or fantasy novel. It is written in a style best suited to a younger audience, maybe 10 and up. As an adult, I appreciated the insightfulness of the explanations of things like yin and yang, but felt the dialog and characters were a little simplistic in comparison and did not balance as well as they could have. However, that being said, the author has done an amazing job of explaining so many complex aspects of spirituality that are difficult for anyone to grasp. I applaud the author for writing about a very complex subject in a way that young people can understand and relate to. The sections where the adults in the book explained details about dreams and their meanings were especially fascinating. This was a unique book; I can honestly say I have not read anything like it before!

Changed Forever (The Dreams of Sara Knight) by Steven Misosky is an awesome book. It is very different from any books I have read and the story is very interesting. It really had my attention from the very beginning.
The story starts out with Kara and Sara Knight’s birthday. They are 10 yr old twins who have special abilities. Their parents, Steve and Cindy Knight, have decided that they are old enough to know about their destiny. What will the twins think about it and will they accept what their future holds?
The day after their birthday, Kara and Sara’s grandmother Gaddi stops by to see them and gives them their birthday presents. Their grandmother explains to them more about it and what they have to do.
Kara and Sara’s adventure begins the day they first learned about their destiny. Through out this adventure, they will find out a lot of things and they will go looking for answers to them.
As I was reading, I felt like I was on this awesome adventure with the twins.
Steven Misosky has done a fantastic job writing Changed Forever. It is the first book in The Dreams of Sara Knight. I hope that he will come out with a sequel to this series. I am really looking forward to reading his future books. It is a must read so I definitely recommend this book to my friends.

This book has been an eye opener!!
I've always found dreams to be a fascinating subject and experience and this book covered just that. Our mind is a super power and most of us never realise it, as we carry out our daily lives. I enjoyed reading this book very much.
What really amazed me is the depth of the author's knowledge about Spirituality and Dreams. The subsconscious mind is an interesting realm and it holds mysteries which no science has been able to solve till date. I enjoyed the intellectual debate that the book provided.
I've also had weird dreams when I was growing up, some which leave a deep impact on my mind. I think I am going to use the technique the author suggested and maintain my own Dream Journal (=Read the Book, Yes pick it up right AWAY)
The usual thoughts while reading a book are the element of surprise or a twist or the characters or something dark happening to the characters but I never felt their absence in this book. I found it a pleasant change to read about our origins, how ancient knowledge was embedded in so many forms (=Tarot for one!!) and how we should go on a quest to
uncover these mysteries.
I've been a spiritual person since I was a child and this book provided the nourishment for me to take that one step forward to move towards Spiritual Knowledge and fulfillment.
The Main Ingredient of the book, the dreams were amazing to read. I could actually imagine them happening in front of my eyes as I read them. I kept turning the pages and re-reading what had been written before.
I loved the personal note included by the author in the end of the book. I shall be watching out for further books of this series.
ABSOLUTELY LOVED THE BOOK!!!
(The review is an honest expression of my opinion)
