The Star Catcher by Molly Dean

The boys and their father were in a car accident.  When Hawke wakes up, he's paralyzed from the waist down and his father has run away from the family.  He couldn't deal with the aftermath of the accident.  Hawke is having a bad time at that, too.

Goddess Fish Blog Tour invited me to participate in this event (thank you).  The book has been published, so check for a copy now.

This is a fantasy that has an unusual story line.  Hawke is despairing about the loss of his legs and doesn't like being incarcerated in his room.  He went from being an active young man to being bedridden.  His way of escape is to take his medication and dream.  He goes to an island and he can run and jump and climb and live the life he wants he backs.  The only bad thing about it is that it suddenly becomes real!

He finds himself in water and when he surfaces, there's beautiful mermaid there.  She asks him if he's the Star Catcher.  He says no, he's Hawke, but she doesn't believe him.  She tells him he need to go to the manor on the hill, they've been waiting for him.  Once he gets in the manor, the story gets even stranger.  There's professor who has yellow eyes and claws, a stiff manservant that is almost robot-like, a lady confined to bed upstairs, and a young girl who serves as a kitchen servant.  He's given a room and then he's given a quest.

The quest is a big one.  He needs to get to the falling stars before anyone else does.  The Shrikers have taken over the island and are evil.  He can't let them get them first!

With the help of Emma, an old farmer and a crow he's got better odds.  He even gets his brother and Becky from the real world to help a bit.  But it's really up to Hawke...
