About the Book (Excerpts & Info)

The Journey to Beyond Begins from Within...
Beneath the backdrop of a provincial town, Ryan Hayden lives the life of a typical 17-year-old boy. As with any teenager on the brink of adulthood, he questions his place among his peers and contemplates the quandaries of friendship and love. But as a consequence of a childhood tragedy that mysteriously separates him from his family, the boy struggles with thoughts of isolation. Amid this bleak but reflective time, he kindles his imagination by peering upon a glittering grove of stars. Within this realm of the vast unknown, he unwittingly unearths the secrets afflicting his dreams. A relentless quest to discover the truth about his past will ultimately deliver him to a startling revelation. The terror culminates in a battle that wedges his very soul between the elements of this world and beyond.
