Fifteen-year-old Karma is plagued by nightmares as she sleeps. During the day, she faces her own set of problems in the form of high school peers.

When she meets Drakkos, she is stunned to find he is the match for the Wild Boy she sees in her dreams every night.

"I purchased the book off Amazon and it is available at Barnes & Noble, and found it to be an interesting and enjoyable book to read.

If you are interested in Norse Mythology, the God Odin, Valhalla, The Valkyries Battle Maidens, the old Adirondack legends of the 19th Century lodges and their mysteries surrounding them, this is a book you will enjoy reading this book. The story centers around a young girl named Karma, bullied by her school peers, teachers, and the locals of a small Adirondack town.

Unaware, the young girl Karma has the blood of the God Odin in her veins. She begins to sense changes happening from nightmares, strange occurrences both at home and school, and no longer afraid of the bullies who torment her.

The author describes in detail the other main characters in the book, their lives, and how they relate to the young girl Karma, making the characters easy to identify with especially if you have ever spent time in the Adirondacks or lived in the country. The author leaves the reader in suspense as to what changes will occur with the young girl Karma, the family, the people in the town, and the powers she will possess. I am looking forward to the second book and I am sure I will enjoy it as much as the first." - Jon Lee (reviewed on Amazon | May 19, 2021)
