There are no Dragons in this book (Yet)

I really liked A Dark Inheritance by Chris D’Lacey. Michael Malone and his little sister are being driven to school by Mom when they are stopped by a police road closure.  Apparently a dog is running too close to the nearby cliff.  Somehow Michael knows that the dog is about to jump.  He zooms out of the car and grabs the dog just as it is launching itself off the cliff.  Impossible, but it appears that Michael has the gift of altering reality (just a little).  Michael is recruited by a secret organization UNICORNE, whose goal is to investigate paranormal phenomenon.  Michael’s Dad disappeared mysteriously several years before and Michael hopes UNICORNE will help him find his dad.  Include a mysterious goth girl , a ghost girl and the aforementioned dog and you have an exciting read.  I recommend to this action packed adventure to readers in grades five and up and to D’Lacey’s Last Dragons Chronicles fans.
