Zac Wonder sprinted through the forest, the carpet of frozen leaves crunching beneath his bare feet. Whatever was chasing him was gaining. He leapt over a fallen branch and skidded to a halt at the edge of a deep ravine. There was no way across. He was trapped. The trees rustled, and he whirled round. A tall figure in black stepped out into the moonlight. In place of a face was a gleaming silver skull. Its arms, encased in bone-shaped silver armour, were folded across its chest. Zac felt panic rise in his throat as the terrifying apparition advanced towards him. Without thinking, he took a fatal step backwards, and fell, tumbling into darkness . . .

About the book

Everybody dreams. That’s the problem.

Good dreams are sweet. Bad dreams are scary, but what happens if the worst sort of nightmares take over?

Zac Wonder is about to find out. On the stroke of midnight, he is plunged into an extraordinary world on the other side of sleep. Is he still dreaming? Has he gone nuts? Or is he really meant to save us all from vampires, werewolves and the dream pirates who threaten to keep us awake for ever?
