Publisher's Summary

Acclaimed author P. W. Catanese presents Happenstance Found, the first in the rollicking Books of Umber fantasy series. Happenstance, a boy with unusual green eyes, awakens with no memories. Falling in with the adventurer Lord Umber and his band of misfits, this boy with many uncanny gifts soon discovers that he may be the strangest one of all.


What the Critics Say

"Catanese packs a lot into the book: rich characterizations (Umber, who turns out to be from another dimension, suffers from depression and wishes he had his meds), well-choreographed action sequences and genuinely surprising twists at the end. An auspicious start to the series." (Publishers Weekly)

Did not deliver

the Story sounded so good when I read what it was about and bought all 3 books. I was very disappointed the story took ages to get going and didn't delivery much.
