A BOY. A CAT. A NIGHTMARE IN TWO WORLDS!  (A Wattpad FEATURED Story)
    
    * *Voted 'TOP 100 Children's Books to Read in a Lifetime' by GOODREADS.COM users!**
    ***Raves from The Guardian (UK), KIRKUS, Midwest Book Reviews, AMAZON, and more!!!***
    
    In the sleepy town of Appleton, a young loner follows a stray cat onto the road and is struck by a car. A leg is shattered, a summer is ruined, and the troubled life of Billy Brahm goes from bad...to cursed.
    
    When the mysterious cat appears at his bedside, Billy is haunted by strange and prophetic dreams; the creatures within them speak of Watchers and Shadows...and the Enemy that Awakens.  
    
    Does this impossible realm hold the key to healing his broken body? Is the golden-eyed cat there to help the boy, or to make the nightmares come true? 
    
    Too frightened to share the truth with his strict adoptive parents, Billy realizes that the only ones he can turn to are the local vet’s daughter, the town's 'crazy cat lady'...
    
    ...and a mystical tiger, beckoning from his dreams.

    AUTHOR'S NOTE
    
    This is the first volume in THE SHADOWLAND SAGA -- a powerful and personal epic, intended to make you think, and feel, and Dream. It's a tale that slowly tightens its grip until you're unable to escape its haunting and mysterious grasp.
