( Rating: 3 Star Rating)

Ray is a 12-year-old who’s haunted by strange memories of his dad. The things he remembers make Ray believe that his dad could actually talk to animals.

Author: John Claude Bemis
Series: The Clockwork Dark
Ages: 9-12


The main character in this book is Ray – a 12-year-old boy who’s haunted by some very strange memories of his dad. The things he remembers about his father make Ray believe that his dad could actually talk to animals! But that was a long time ago and now, with his dad dead, Ray is just an orphan kid who finds himself traveling through the southern United States with a medicine show train and its crazy collection of sideshow performers.

Keeping in mind that not everything is at it seems, the sideshow performers turn out to be heroes and defenders of the wild. They’ve taken on as their duty to protect the last of the mythical Swamp Sirens from an ancient evil known as the Gog. While they have no clue why the Gog wants the Siren, they know it has something to do with rebuilding a huge machine that was actually the cause of Ray’s dad’s death years before.

The Author

John Claude Bemis began his writing career as a songwriter and through old-time country and blues music began to explore how Southern folklore could become epic fantasy. Visit his website at www.johnclaudebemis.com.
