Overview

"Readers of all ages will be challenged and enlightened by the author’s sensitive approach to confronting lies, death, and sorrow." –Authors Reading

To a ten-year-old, death is far from kind: it is imprisonment! To help the living get to their next day, Peter is required to work in the “Conservatory,” a library where every person is represented by a “LifeBook.” Turning the pages of LifeBooks is excruciatingly dull, so Peter plots his escape! However, that would ruin Apius’ evil plan to obtain an Ancient Hourglass that controls time. With the hourglass in hand, all of the guarded souls in the LifeBooks could be his, making him unstoppable.

About the Author

At the age of five, G. L. Garrett asked Santa for a typewriter. It was at that moment he knew he wanted to be an author. In the second grade, after mercilessly clacking away at the typewriter keys, he had his first story published in a local newspaper in Upstate New York. After a lengthy hiatus lasting several decades, G. L. Garrett took to writing again, giving way to a much quieter laptop.
