Two distinct worlds become intertwined by dreams, shadows, ghosts, and magical gifts. As several different stories are weaved into one, diary entries from an ancient text allow the reader to discover how the past affects the present. The main characters include Micah, a teen boy from another world; a 6th grader named Vickie who simply wants to have fun with her friends; and Roland, an unscrupulous janitor who will stop at nothing to get what he believes he deserves.

Braumaru, the first book in the Behold the Eye trilogy, follows Micah, a young boy who lives in a world very similar to our own. Micah has completed his Rite of Passage, but he awaits true manhood, when his birth gift reveals itself.

Meanwhile, Vickie, a 6th-grader in our world, wants some excitement in her life. In her attempt to write a ghostly bestseller, she begins to truly observe her world and its mysteries. That is how she crosses paths with an unscrupulous janitor who hopes to travel to Micah's world and satisfy his quest for power.

What happens when someone discovers how to travel through the land of dreams, and the lives of our world become entwined with those of the other dimension? Read Behold the Eye: Braumaru to make that timeless, magical journey yourself. Ages 9-12.

Reader Reviews for "Behold the Eye: Braumaru (Book 1)"

Reviewed by Ann Hauer 1/31/2010
Behold the Eye: Braumaru is the first installment of three that are sure to satisfy the imagination of young readers and even adults. This would be a wonderful addition to any school library. The first half of this unfolding story begins with Micah Zomorah, a young boy of fifteen residing in another realm, reflecting on his anticipated day of becoming a “man”. However, he is not truly considered a ‘full-fledged’ adult until he discovers his birth gift of power. Micah and his family are unaware however, that is birth gift has already arrived, as Micah is able to ‘dream travel’ on the night of his “Rite of Passage”.

We are introduced immediately to four girls; all of them are the closest of friends even though they have their little squabbles. Vickie is the one that decides to give the girls an adventure as the four are often so bored during lunchtime as they are at the age of being too old to play on the playground equipment and the physical games made them sweaty.
They all agree to Vickie’s idea and it is decided that the story will be based on fact, and it will be a book about a ghost story, as this is what they think will sell. Each girl seems to have her own unique talent that is explored to help with the story. One of the girls has the talent of seeing a ‘shadow’ that is truly Micah, as he is dreaming of these girls consistently.

An ‘evil’ character comes into play in this story, as another lost ‘dream traveling’ girl is caught in the time with the four friends. He has this girl spy on them and tricks her by promising to help her return home. This man has her gain him pictures of an ancient lost book that contained inscriptions from his ancestor regarding how their home was lost, save only a select few. He uses these clues, as well as some family history to plot his way to get back to his home. By tricking one of the girls and having her fall deep into a coma, he also goes back on his word by locking his helper, the girl in a ‘dream house’. Micah attempts to help the girl of his dream, only to find that ‘Dream Traveling’ can indeed be hazardous!

Being an adult, I enjoyed this story very much as it was vivid and with the changing from Micah’s world and the girls’ world, it was not too hard to keep up with and it was a very interesting idea. The story starts out with a letter from Vickie to her local librarian regarding the book that I found to be fun and with humor well placed. Veronica truly captured the girls’ attitudes and behaviors, meaning I liked the nice ones, and was not too fond of the mean ones, or had jealousy or bad intentions. It is full of suspense, imagination and action; without being overly frightening especially for a younger reader.
I have the second installment in my hand and I am looking forward to it as this book left me hanging!

Veronica, I'm a fantasy writer, but the little bit you've shared about Behold the Eye shows me clearly that I've a long way to go if I expect to approach your expertise. I hope you sell millions.
