The Last Thirteen (Video and Links)

This is a young adult series.

This series needs to be read in order starting with book titled “13” and ending with book titled “1”. Sam is the first of the last 13 Dreamers to be revealed. Caught in a covert battle to preserve life as we know it, he must follow the clues to find twelve more Dreamers. Only this unique group can unravel the mysteries of an ancient prophecy and locate the long-lost key to Earth’s survival. Sam must not only face two competing factions—The Enterprise and The Academy—but also elude the menacing presence of the masked figure, Solaris, who is always lurking in both dreams and reality. The last 13 Dreamers are always in danger. The group must avoid capture by trained Agents and unscrupulous treasure hunters, as well as thwart security officials as they gain access to museums, libraries, government facilities and archaeological sites, in order to locate the lost pieces of the artifact that will lead them to their ultimate destination. The last 13 must continue on their desperate mission against the odds and face the inevitable final battle. Will they be strong enough to fulfill the prophecy, or is the world doomed?
