I just finished reading the digital version of this newly published novel and although it falls outside my personal reading preference wheelhouse, I must say it proved to be a well written page-turner laced with the realities of youth and certainly sets up for a continuing series for the young adult audience.
Don't we all have monsters in our closets....metaphorically maybe the ones that we are afraid to address. This author vividly puts a face on and a personality to each of his "characters" making any "non-believer" in other-world creatures take a look under the bed and in the closet...just to be sure!
David gives credit to his mother for always encouraging his imaginative side and if this book is representative of a wildly creative mind, I don't think he will every let his imagination "get old and wrinkled."
As a disclaimer, I know David and purchased his book in support of an author fulfilling his writing dream. I understand how difficult it is to achieve this milestone and honestly I was delighted that I found the book so endearing.
