A Dark Inheritance by Chris D'Lancey

A Dark Inheritance (Unicorne Files #1)This book is a 2014 release, and I gave it a rating of four out of five. Michael saves a dog from jumping off a cliff, and witnesses say Michael seemed to appear from nowhere. It turns out he's able to change reality. He has the power to imagine different events and cause them to become true. A group called UNICORNE contacts Michael; they investigate unusual and supernatural events. Michael's father disappeared three years ago, and he had secretly been working for this group. To discover the truth about his father, Michael must learn more about the dog and its former owner, Rafferty. He discovers the mysterious story of a girl who died in a bike accident, and he learns more about a strange girl from school. There seems to be an unusual connection between organ donors and the patients who receive them. Michael must use his power to uncover the secrets, but his gift may be the end of him if it can't be controlled.

This book requires some imagination from the readers. Michael's ability to change events was easy to understand, but it got a little confusing when he entered the minds and memories of others. Character's memories tended to change, so I needed to be flexible as I read. The plot made me think, and I like that. It became clear that Rafferty, the dog, and the classmate were connected in some way, and this connection was slowly revealed. I wasn't sure if UNICORNE was good or bad, and I'm still not sure even after finishing the book.
