Genre: YA, fantasy, action and adventure, coming of age
Publisher: Sean Thompson
Release Date: 2/3/2014
Dreams of a Nobody (part 1) is the beginning of the story of Amos Kieran, a young boy chosen by his king to play a key role in bringing world peace. All Amos has to do is kill a few hundred or a few thousand people (however many the king needs to create his vision of peace) at the cost of his own life—a small price to pay for the good of the world.
This first part follows Amos on his last night before his training as King Maximino’s chief assassin begins in earnest. Amos sits in a field counting stars, his favorite and only pastime, thinking about the childhood he’s already lost, and trying to figure out a way to change his destiny—a task he fears is like using his imagination one last time. His last night of peace is interrupted by an unusual dove who loves the spotlight, and a man, who could very well be Death (or someone much worse), that takes Amos to task for the crimes he’ll commit against humanity. Tonight, Amos faces the very real possibility of losing his life before he loses it to his job.
What choices will Amos make? And how will he go about trying to change the world and his circumstances? Can he?
