Synopsis: "Save them, Dean. Save them all...."
Dean Curse avoids attention the way his best friend Colin avoids common sense. Which is why he isn’t happy about being Abbotsford’s latest local hero – having saved the life of a stranger, he is now front page news. Dean’s reason for avoiding the limelight? Ever since his heroic act, he’s been having terrifying visions of people dying and they’re freaking him out so badly his psychologist father just might have him committed. Dean wants nothing more than to lay low and let life get back to normal.
But when Dean’s visions start to come true, and people really start dying, he has to race against the clock – literally – to figure out what’s happening. Is this power of premonition a curse? Or is Dean gifted with the ability to save people from horrible fates? The answer will be the difference between life and death.

Synopsis: Fourteen-year-old Dean Curse is still having horrifying visions of people in grave danger – visions that leave him a single day to save their lives. So far, he’s considered a few broken bones and a standing appointment in group therapy to be a small sacrifice compared to the good he's done.
While learning more about the mysterious society that gave him the gift, Dean has a vision that leads him to believe a monk is going to rob a museum—if he’s right, the robbery will go very badly. But he can’t get the police to believe him. In fact, the authorities think Dean is at the root of all the trouble. Dean and his friends decide the only way to save a few lives is to take matters into their own hands, even if it means breaking a few laws. They have 24 hours to decide if the ends really do justify the means.

Synopsis: The time has come: Dean Curse and his two best friends will soon meet the other members of the society who share his gift of premonition. They’re so excited to finally get a formal welcome that they don’t even mind that the timing means they miss the opening day of the city’s premier event: the annual Abbotsford air show.
But what is supposed to be a relaxed meet-and-greet with his new team, quickly becomes a race against the clock. Dean, and every other member of the Abbotsford sector, are hit—at the same moment—by a particularly horrifying vision of death and members of the Congregatio de Sacrifico from divisions all over the country come to help. One thing is clear: they have 24 hours to stop what is sure to be the most catastrophic event the city has ever seen.
But as desperate seconds tick by, Dean, Colin and Lisa become more and more convinced the disaster is going to be caused by someone within their own new-found ranks. It’s going to take every ounce of determination and bravery for Dean and his friends to find the answers before it’s too late – but how do you stop someone who already knows the tricks of the society’s trade?
