These criminals are the ancestors of the Valley People. So all of you, Mountain and Valley people, are ancestors of my kingdom, Romas."

When Chihaysu returned, he advised that he had spent seven days in the desert praying. He enjoyed a brief visit from Jonas but most of the time, he was alone. He felt close to God but had questions that he wanted answered. He said he observed a beautiful sunset on the last night he was there and felt a peace come over him.

That night he dreamed. He dreamed that he met Mattpaul and he posed three questions to Mattpaul. He said the dream was so vivid he remembered, he believes, every word spoken during the dream.

                                  Below are some summary reviews:

Lee Ashford reviewing for Readers' Favorite: "The Chest of Visions" is crafted as a totally new concept for involving today's youth in Bible study. Borrowing from the contemporary popularity of Science Fiction and Fantasy fiction novels, comics and movies, the author has devised a correspondence across parallel universes between several teen-aged individuals on two different planets in two different universes.

If read in its entirety, and considered prayerfully, "Chest of Visions" should be acknowledged as a significant step forward in Youth Group Study Guides.

Review by Daniel Mosley, age 16: "I loved this book. It is inspiring and interesting ..."

Review by Melissa Jagel: "Engaging, exciting, entertaining, and easy-to-read! Ferguson's super-cool little book, "The Chest of Visions," brilliantly captures the essence of the Gospel message "

Review by Keila Ochoa Harris, Mexican christian fiction author: "Through a fast paced story we learn about Mattpaul and his adventure in Caperston... Mattpaul had a decision to make. He had to choose between following Chihaysu or staying as he was."

Marie Hough Review: "The Chest of Visions, Secrets of Caperston is a must read for everyone... I began reading it with my ten year old grandson one day. When I came back one week later he had finished the book on his own and said he cannot wait to read the sequel. This is one of a few books that I will enjoy rereading numerous times."
