Book Review: Monster Slayers

Monster Slayers

Monster Slayers, by Lukas Ritter

While young boys Evin and Jorick are out playing in the forest, they return to their village in ruins and the entire community kidnapped by ferocious creatures called gnolls. With the help of a young wizard and her guidebook A Practical Guide to Monsters, the trio venture into the lair of monsters to rescue the boys’ families. But when Evin is met with a shocking event, he begins to realize that nothing is what it seems. He has memories that seem to be missing. And Evin must uncover the truth behind the abductions and find out who is truly on his side.

Based on the book A Practical Guide to Monsters, this fantasy book for children is a extraordinary addition. Evin is brave and smart, and is the first to question his memories and reality. As the trio of adventurers proceed in their search, they encounter incredible danger and seemingly insurmountable odds. And a shocking twist of an ending culminates to a fantastic showdown. With non-stop action and adventure, unique monsters, and a bit of magic, this is an exciting story for young and old alike.

Monster Slayers releases from Mirrorstone Books on May 11, 2010.

Book Review: The Shadow Project

The Shadow Project

The Shadow Project, by Herbie Brennan

Young Danny Lipman is a talented thief. But when he breaks into a secret government facility, Danny is introduced to a world he didn’t know existed. Teenagers are being used as government spies for MI6, via remote viewing, which a person’s energy leaves their body and travels anywhere, not being seen or heard. This has been a completely safe procedure, until Opal’s latest mission. When tracking a dangerous terrorist, Opal is seen by an evil mystic and captured outside of her body.

Despite being a thief, Danny is a likeable character, brave and protective of his elderly grandmother. Danny’s grandmother is not the frail, ill woman she appears to be either. Opal and Michael, the current available teenage operatives are confident on the outside, but on the inside just insecure teens. A fantastic, complex plot, edge-of-your-seat suspense, and a new look at the world of the paranormal; this was a surprising and completely unique story. With the feeling of a spy novel, this science fiction/fantasy novel covers a lot of ground, literally and figuratively. The blending of these genres should attract a wider range of audience, from teens to adults.
