Sixteen-year-old Asher Haynes has dreams. Very real dreams. Like the dream that foretold his mother’s death. Or the dream foretelling an invasion of his family’s home. And then there was “that dream”. The one that got him expelled in his freshman year. Now in his junior year, Asher has sworn off dreams. That is, until he has a shocking dream containing valuable information. His dream quickly becomes a nightmare as he finds himself running for his life from a man who has been searching the globe for this information for decades. Asher must find a way to stop him before it’s too late.

“Entertaining story and very well written. It grabs you; I read the book in two sittings. It was that good!” Kimanzi Constable, Bestselling author of Are You Living or Existing?
“Highly recommend for Young Adults and those of us that are young adults at heart.” Jimmy Burgess, Bestselling author of What Just Happened?
Jennifer Tubbiolo's first book in the Narthex Academy Series was a huge hit in our house! I previewed it for my daughter to read and found I couldn't put it down myself! Asher was such a believable character. I loved watching him go from an introverted boy trying to hide from everyone to a strong, funny, courageous young man. The detailed descriptions made me feel like I was watching a movie as I read the book. My teenager found it witty and exciting. She's anxiously awaiting the next in the series, and quite honestly, so am I!
If you are looking for a novel that is suspenseful and action packed in the realms of the supernatural, yet still holds to strong Christian principles, this book is for YOU. My daughter and I have both read it (she is 15) and have fallen in love with Asher (the main character) and his friends. Jennifer has a real talent for bringing Biblical truths to light through vivid description and real-life teen scenarios her readers can identify with. My daughter and I are both looking forward to her next book!
