About The Book:

Eurich lives in a world where Earth is on a seemingly imminent collision course with Chaos, due to a weakening barrier between Earth and another world that has been hidden for millennia. This barrier is causing Eurich’s universe to turn upside down. New moons have appeared in the sky. Panic is rippling through every member of the human race, and Eurich is the only one who has the power to fix what has gone horribly wrong. Eurich’s closest friends, Jason and Raine, are doing their best to help him, but what Eurich needs isn’t help – it’s a way through the barrier. He and he alone must determine if humanity is worth saving, and if he is willing to risk his life to do so. Saving the world always begins with a single choice, but it is one that Eurich may not be ready to make. 

Lynda's Review:

~ Eurich leaned down to unfold the paper, which was tattered and singed: I'll see you soon; just try not to die before you get here.~ Page 26

Like taking a climb up a steep hill, this read took time and persistence. The story premise is not really different, but does have some original twists. The author includes a lot of dialog and uses it to good advantage, pushing the plot elements forward. If you like reading about an unlikely hero who is thrust into the role of world-saver, then you'll enjoy this story.
