Nick met Jazz, his black stallion during vacation in Colorado, at twelve years old. There was an electrifying bond between the two immediately. Nick survived the lion attack by the grips of the horse’s teeth that flew the mountain lion at least seven feet away from the young lad. Five years later a major accident takes place, but Nick and his horse went into the midst to a magical kingdom known as “Celestria” which is a fantastical lifestyle with beautiful unicorns, fairies, and healing power beyond belief.
Dream Moment(s): In this mystical realm, experience the power to heal and hear animals speak as well as an adventure to enrapture on this reading journey of this novel. Nick’s power source was love and encouragement in which helped him refocus his strength and thoughts. This is a dream moment for young adults to see the power of love, encouragement, and refocus your thoughts to positivity. “We have no power if we have fear. Replace fear with love” (page 70).
Dream 4 More: The moral of the story is “freewill” and choose to be either good or evil, which path you choose isn’t always easy especially coming to the light (good). Nick had the power. You also have the power to choose your path on this life journey. What I loved most about this book: Nick was able to see dreams, create and speak things into existence, and a heart to love and help a young girl in need—to rescue her out of the darkness. Moreover, I am a dreamer, thinker, and doer—Nick exemplified all these things and hope it encourages young people to do the same in their lives. The readers for this book are 12 years old and up; however, the author’s writing style is precisely for older teens.
