"Changed Forever (The Dreams of Sara Knight) by Steven Misosky is an awesome book. It is very different from any books I have read and the story is very interesting. It really had my attention from the very beginning.
The story starts out with Kara and Sara Knight’s birthday. They are 10 yr old twins who have special abilities. Their parents, Steve and Cindy Knight, have decided that they are old enough to know about their destiny. What will the twins think about it and will they accept what their future holds?
The day after their birthday, Kara and Sara’s grandmother Gaddi stops by to see them and gives them their birthday presents. Their grandmother explains to them more about it and what they have to do.
Kara and Sara’s adventure begins the day they first learned about their destiny. Through out this adventure, they will find out a lot of things and they will go looking for answers to them.
As I was reading, I felt like I was on this awesome adventure with the twins.
Steven Misosky has done a fantastic job writing Changed Forever. It is the first book in The Dreams of Sara Knight. I hope that he will come out with a sequel to this series. I am really looking forward to reading his future books. It is a must read so I definitely recommend this book to my friends." ~Len, As You Wish Reviews
“The thing to remember is that dreams give a person what they need, even if they don’t understand it completely. For example, if a person feels trapped and restricted in their waking life, they may get dreams with activity and adventure that can satisfy that need for freedom. Mixed in it somewhere, though, will be ideas that could help them escape their restrictions. So at the same time they get help in coping with their life, they also get some kind of guidance to lead them to a better future. Our subconscious is part of us; it wants us to thrive and prosper. The key is to understand the subconscious’ methods, and then use that understanding to work efficiently and harmoniously with it to get the kind of life we want.”
“And Grandma gave us these dream journals to help us learn how to do that, didn't she?” Sara asked.
“Yes, that’s right Sara. The subconscious can do miraculous things, and its power is practically unlimited. The thing is; it accepts everything. For those people who sit around and watch television all day, well, that all gets mixed in by their subconscious, and when they get emotional about it, then that adds to the level of importance that their subconscious interprets as meaningful to their life. Many people aren't building their own future. It’s being programmed into them by the TV. When you consider all the sophisticated advertising that is designed to influence you at the subconscious level, then you begin to understand why we are in such a mess. You girls have a greater opportunity to get more from your dreams, because we know to avoid letting others have so much access to our inner nature. Right?”
"In Changed Forever, I shared with you some interesting things about the number thirteen. There will be more in book two. But, do you really believe there are energy patterns like that which affect our lives? Let me tell you a few things about thirteen in my life. My name has thirteen letters. I was born in the sign of Scorpio, which is represented in tarot by Key 13. I got my first job at the age of thirteen. I worked there until I graduated from high school. I had one other job after that. Then at the age of twenty-six, thirteen years after I got my first job, I switched to a good paying job which I kept for many years. There are other significant thirteens, but this is a short bio so I’ll skip to the present. On July 13, 2012, a Friday the thirteenth, a freak accident at work broke a bone in my hand. It was bad and needed surgery. I decided it wasn't a problem but an opportunity; time to prepare myself, and get The Dreams of Sara Knight ready for publication. Exactly one year later, on July 13, I received the edited copy of my manuscript back from my editor. I was ready to go. So, here we are in 2013 and my life course is changing again as I publish my first novel. And by the way, as I do this, I have been studying with a western mystery school for 13 years. So, you decide, is life more about patterns of energy than we normally consider? It certainly is. We are vital energy beings first, and live in an electrical universe. Someday I’ll write the whole story and share it with you." ~ Steven Misosky
