"I know many things. Including the fact that you have something that belongs to me . . . ."

Twelve-year-old Jamal has always lived in his twin brother, Malik's, shadow. All he wants in the world is to know, just for one day, what it's like to be his more popular, more talented, and more confident brother. So when a mysterious man named Dr. Facilier appears and offers Jamal the opportunity to do just that, Jamal jumps at the chance. But when he wakes up the next morning to find his dream has come true, he learns it comes at a terrible cost. There's a reason people say "Never make a deal with the Shadow Man." And Jamal is about to find out why. 

Grab your night-light, dear reader, and prepare to be CHILL-ed!

🎵   The dreams that you FEAR will come true...   🎵

That is the chilling tagline at the top of the book, and just try and deny that you didn't just SING it, because you KNOW you did!  Denial or not, it will stay with you, as well as that shiver you feel creeping up your spine...

It's a story you may have heard in life...twin boys, where one overshadows the other, leaving that shadowed one feeling less than, and harboring feelings of wanting to belong.  Those feelings tend to grow over time if not dealt with and in this case, they grew so much they attracted the wrong sort of attention at the right moment.   It doesn't help that one was basically wearing a beacon that called to this dangerous sort of "person", if he can even be called that with the evil running through him, but I digress.  Jamal is given the chance to experience life in the forefront, to take the spotlight for himself...but at what cost?  Will temptation be enough to tip the scales or will he hold true to the familial bonds of brotherhood and family and call it enough?

I had honestly not seen/heard of the Disney Chills series prior to this tour, so I went in expecting a typical Disney-type read.  A story that was innovative (check!), captivating (check!), something really special that I wouldn't forget (check!)...but the ending...OH MY!  Now THAT came as a TOTAL SURPRISE!  I mean here I was in my Disney-mode-mood and BOOM, my allusion was shattered.  That may sound like a bad thing, but trust me...as surprised as I was, it wasn't a bad surprise, merely out of the blue from preconceived notions, and it definitely left me saying OOOH!

  In the end, it was a GREAT READ and I can't wait for another installment...in fact, I don't want to wait so much that I do believe I'm going to check out what the first book was in the series to indulge my curiosity.  Happy reading!
