Trying astral projection is just a joke. Zach never expects to leave his body and soar into a strange shadow place. On his first trip, he meets Emory, another astral traveler who’s intriguing (and cute). Then Zach’s little brother Gilbert disappears. Zach and Emory try to rescue Gilbert, but there’s a menacing creature in their way.

Zach lives with his grandparents on a remote island in Puget Sound in Washington State. With only his little brother, Gilbert, to keep him company, Zach feels cut off from the world. But when Gilbert is kidnapped, Zach tries the only thing he can think of to find him: astral projection. Soon, his spirit is soaring through the strange and boundless astral realm—a shadow place. While searching for his brother, Zach meets a boy named Emory, another astral traveler who’s intriguing (and cute). As Zach and Emory track the kidnappers from the astral realm, their bond grows—but each moment could be Gilbert’s last. Even worse, there’s a menacing, centuries-old creature in their midst that devours souls and possesses physical bodies. And it’s hungry for Zach. From Brent Hartinger, the award-winning and critically acclaimed author of Geography Club.
