Think Harry Potter meets Avatar in the center of the ocean with a young girl who is called to by the whales and now we're talking.
The Whale Dreamer is the first book in a two part series. It begins when Kelley nine years old just after she drowned in a mysterious accident in the ocean. After being resuscitated, life was never the same. She returned home from the hospital to find her house filled with apparitions of wild animals that are about to go extinct. Kelley discovered that she has become what is known as a Passerby, a vortex of sorts that animals must pass through before going extinct. Every room in her home fills with apparitions of wild animals, from lions to frogs, one can't move through the house without walking through an apparition of an animal on its way out.
But then the whales start calling.
They populate her dreams. She hears them every time she touches water, sees them everywhere, sometimes hanging from trees, flopped over the car in her school parking lot, they won't leave her alone until she answers their call...
Kelley, along with a few scientists and a reporter, sets out on the adventure of a lifetime as she leaves her home to go swim with the whales. But the whales have something up their sleeve: saving the world...but not as we know it.
The Whale Dreamer Series is not just an action-packed story; it’s also an encyclopedia full of factual information about whales and endangered species, the state of our oceans, and the people who are working to protect these beings and places. Through the entertaining form of fiction, we are exposed to the very real dangers that threaten marine life.
But in its truest essence…
This Whale Dreamer is a wild reweaving of the power of one, with a twist for our time: the power of the collective.
