The bumpff states:

Amanda Fisher sees things in her dreams most people don’t. Her world is turned upside down when she begins receiving messages through her dreams from her grandmother, who died recently. This leads thirteen-year-old Amanda and her younger brother, Danny, on an adventure where they learn an ancient family secret. They are the last in line of guardians of the mysterious Source Crystals, the most powerful stones in the world. Hunted by the Hraefn Corporation, and horrible, dark creatures who have been after their family for thousands of years, they are caught in a battle between light and dark forces. The guardians seek help from the wise Elders they meet in a mystical place inside the earth. They will be challenged far beyond the training they receive from the Elders. If they are not successful, millions of people will be in danger and the planet will return to the terror of the Dark Ages. A Book Club Discussion Guide is included in the book, perfect for Middle Readers reading groups and study guides. This is the first of a series.
