Can Lewis Nash become the powerful Shaper he was destined to be and save Xor?

On his twelfth birthday Lewis Nash comes home from school to find that his house has blown up to smithereens, killing his father. Having lost his mother in an accident four years earlier, Lewis realizes he is now an orphan -- but he has no time to dwell on it. The moment he gets off the school bus a fearsome wolf-man tries to grab him. The boy is saved in the nick of time by Master Long, who reveals to him that he's a Shaper from a place called Xor, which is being devoured by the Realm Pirates. Lewis learns that he must do his utmost to become the powerful Shaper he was destined to be.

Because, it would seem, he's the one and only chance Xor has.

Review:

"Xor is a fun and exciting read ... an enthralling journey into an alternate dimension where mind over matter is much more than just a cliché." -- Portland Book Review

"... so well written and so funny I couldn't put it down!" -- Sarah's review

"This is a funny, imaginative and clever adventure perfect for middle readers... Moshe Sipper shows tremendous potential with this interplanetary debut." -- Dragons Who Read
 
"There were so many adventures and antagonists to keep the book from becoming boring... if Xor turned into a movie I predict it'd be a big hit." -- Your Average Book Worms
