Immortality isn't just about living forever; sometimes, it's about forever refusing to let things die.

WINNER: Pinnacle Book Achievement Award - Best Young Adult Fiction

For his 15th birthday, David Rose wishes for things to go back to the way they were. He wants the nightmares to end, the bullies to leave, and the claustrophobic memories of his near drowning to disappear. Not to mention his surreal encounter with a mythical creature.

He stands with his little sister Rachel in front of their mother's grave and pledges to seek the truth about what really happened on that terrible evening a year ago, but this quest for truth threatens to unleash a sinister plot centuries in the making.

David must awaken in time—to the incredible truth, to his newfound powers, and to the realization that to protect his family and survive in the world he's always known, he must come to grips with the dark secrets of a world he never knew existed.

About the Author

AUTHOR: From childhood I kindled three dreams: to one day become a father, a writer, and a baseball player. Two of three ain't bad. (I shall neither confirm nor deny holding out deluded hope for the third.) Most of what I write is fiction, but not all. I write the occasional article and guest post, and conduct some interviews. I'm an English major, have a masters in social work, and have been a nonprofit leader for many years. I am crazy for sports and animals, am helplessly in love with the written word, and am eternally grateful for my family, who make me luckier than I could ever deserve.

EDITOR: Lane Diamond has over 160 published books to his editing credit, including many multiple award-winners, across many genres and styles.

EDITOR: I earned my BA in creative writing from the University of Washington, and I later returned to earn a certificate in editing. I've discovered that, almost as much as I enjoy creating my own stories, I love helping others polish, perfect, and streamline their work-breaking down a scene to discover precisely what isn't working, hunting down plot holes and inconsistencies, and digging for the exact turn of phrase that will make a piece of dialogue sing. When I'm not editing, I'm often hiking, dancing (swing and Texas two-step), playing video games, or-of course-reading. After a recent move from Seattle to Austin, I also spend more time eating tacos than the average human.
