Book Summary:
(Taken from Amazon)

It's almost summer in the tiny American town of Crimson Cove, but 12 year-old twins Joshua and Ella Beckett have a major problem: Their best friend Kory has been kidnapped by the evil Lord Kharon and taken to the Unbetween, a parallel realm of the dead.

When a mysterious recluse known only as the Great Witch magically shows them how the futures of two worlds depend upon Kharon's defeat and Kory's safe return, the Beckett's and fellow friends - Daniel, Jack and Raevyn - risk their mortal souls to bring her home.

Guided only by a shape-shifting guardian and blessed with extraordinary powers from the Unbetween itself, the five companions face their darkest fears, reconnect with lost loves and battle terrifying creatures on their perilous journey to destroy Kharon once and for all. But the Unbetween holds far more secrets than they ever expected, and the fate of every soul - living and dead - hangs in the balance ...

Mandy's Review:

A dark, mysterious, slightly comedic, action-packed adventurous package all tied up with the pretty little bow of friendship. It brings to mind those great novels/movies like Stand By Me, It and The Goonies.

Five friends come together and make a pact to find their lost friend, Kory. What they don't realize is that Kory is no longer on Earth. She is in a parallel realm for the undead called the Unbetween. Everything about the Unbetween is designed to steal away a person's strength and will to live. Can they survive long enough to find Kory?

This book is full of twists and turns that are sure to keep the reader's interest from beginning to end. I know I sound like a paid sponsor, but this book really is interesting and one that does not want to let the reader's imagination go. I would say it is geared more for young adults, but adults who are young at heart and love adventure would appreciate Philip David Hogan's Believe.
