Synopses & Reviews
The first time his father disappeared, Tucker Feye had just turned thirteen. The Reverend Feye simply climbed on the roof to fix a shingle, let out a scream, and vanished ? only to walk up the driveway an hour later, looking older and worn, with a strange girl named Lahlia in tow. In the months that followed, Tucker watched his father grow distant and his once loving mother slide into madness. But then both of his parents disappear.Now in the care of his wild Uncle Kosh, Tucker begins to suspect that the disks of shimmering air he keeps seeing ? one right on top of the roof?hold the answer to restoring his family. And when he dares to step into one, he's launched on a time-twisting journey ? from a small Midwestern town to a futuristic hospital run by digitally augmented healers, from the death of an ancient prophet to a forest at the end of time. Inevitably, Tucker's actions inevitably alter the past and future, changing his world forever.
The first time Tucker saw the disk, his father disappeared into thin air. The Reverend Adrian Feye had climbed onto the roof to fix a loose shingle and suddenly he was gone. An hour later, the Reverend came walking up the road, tattered and sunburned, bringing with him an unspeaking, yellow-haired, dark-eyed girl. He refused to say where he had been, instead declaring that there would be no more prayer in the Feye house: He had lost his faith.
Now Tucker s family is unraveling. The Reverend spends hours brooding in his study. Tucker s once warmhearted and loving mother withdraws from the world, claiming she doesn t care to be watched by ghosts. And, above them, the unearthly disk comes and goes.
Then, one day, both of Tucker s parents vanish. From the distant past to an even more distant and terrifying future, Tucker desperately searches for his parents and discovers the astonishing secrets of the Klaatu diskos.
