Speaking of author news B Throwsnaill got his updated cover art for Hemlock and the Wizard Tower posted on his website. It is a great cover so stop by and check it out.
Last night I finished reading Demon Gates by Robert Day and it was a great read! Hopefully I will get the review on Amazon and on here later today. He has also volunteered to do an interview about the book so look forward to that in the future.
For now I'll post a review from my older stuff on Amazon.
The second half of the book follows the adventure of exploring Ghost Town with their guide Gasp. Apparently Ghost Town is in an uproar because they have been getting letters that hint at terrible things to come, but they were addressed to Jimmy Stone. I won't go into any detail about the adventures in Ghost Town so as not to ruin the story for anyone.
The characters are well done and you really feel sorry for Jimmy with all the bad things that happen to him. David is still kind of a mystery at this point, but you can identify with him as a kind of shy 5th grade kid. I love the addition of the loyal dog to the story (but I'm an animal lover so its kind of cheating).
The only thing I wanted to see was a little bit more of a link between Jimmy's tragic past and his adventures in Ghost Town. There is a little bit of a tie in, but nothing really solid. It is not enough to take away from the overall book however.
Overall it is a very good book for young adults and I look forward to seeing what else happens to Jimmy in the future.
