Life is tough for the people of Myros. Thomas Courser knows that better than anyone. Oswell Wallace, on the other hand, couldn't know the half of it. Despite living on different planets, and having completely opposite personalities, Oswell and Thomas have far more in common than you might think.
When fate decides each boy's destiny should be reversed, Oswell finds himself trapped on unforgiving Myros with no way back while Thomas is delighted to accept Oswell's comfortable life on Earth. As Oswell fights to survive in a world that isn't his, Thomas too, quickly learns that just as much of a fight is expected of him.
A young adult novel with the ruthlessness of Suzanne Collins's The Hunger Games, wrapped up in the action and political intrigue of GRRM's A Song of Ice and Fire, all presented in a completely new and captivating narrative format. With Waking Woods, J. R. McConnery debuts his first novel, and the first of five in The Courser & Wallace Chronicles.
