Dream Crossing by Matthew Vossler
A young man set on revenge, finds himself caught between his new found love, and her strange world that's plunging into war.
If you liked the movie "Inception," you'll love the book, "Dream Crossing."
Wright is a bright and promising eleventh grader, who has a problem
with Craig the school bully. Hoping for a solution, he reads all the
books in the local library on the subject of magic. But when he begins
practicing astral travel at night, he discovers this kind of magic is no
parlor game. One night, Duncan crosses into the other boy's dream to
confront him in the astral plane. Before he can claim revenge, he
becomes caught in Lastra, a land on the brink of war. In this strange
new land, Duncan is a foundling who strives to learn the secret to
returning home. The ancient legend reveals only the possibility of a
return and the path home remains a mystery. Duncan has to live up to a
prophecy or forever be imprisoned in a land quickly descending into
tries to fit each of us into a mold. Well, it didn't quite work on me,
and the truth of it is, I don't know a single person who fits the mold.
you're like me, you aren't like me, or anyone else. I like to read
certain kinds of books, though perhaps not the same kinds of books you
like. I like certain kinds of people, though perhaps not the same kinds
of people you like. I like to live, love, work, and play in certain
ways, though I bet you are quite different.
But we can talk about
it. I can learn about you, in fact, I love learning about other people.
And you can learn about what I'm all about, if even at a distance. With
all of the issues and problems we have today, we can probably agree that
we also have fantastic opportunities. Never before in our history could
we go to our desk, kitchen table, or to the local library or cafe, push
a few buttons on a keyboard and strike up a conversation with someone
on the other side of the world, and essentially for free. We all have
this great opportunity to celebrate our diversity and expand our views. I
don't know about you, but I find that exciting!
So here's my bio.
I was born in 1963 in upstate New York. I took advantage of the
opportunities I had. I spent summers at our family cottage on Lake
Huron, I went to college after attending public high school, I got a job
as a paralegal, I fell in love with a woman, and started a family. And
somewhere along the way, I found a love of reading and writing. Someone
once said that all you ever needed to know to write good stories, you
learned in kindergarten, and that's probably true. I hope I never stop
writing. There's so much to write about. The only real limit is the
hours in a day.
