The Shadow Fixer

 The Shadow Fixer is book six of the Division Zero series, and like the other five books, this one really packs a punch!  I love Kirsten.  I love the setting.  There’s humor, description…the chance to lose yourself in a new world.  This book is all about action, so don’t start it if you’re about to go to bed.  That was my problem, and I ended up staying awake most of the night trying to finish it so I could know what happened next!

Savannah of Barn Town


What a cute story!  The pace is perfect for keeping a child’s interest.  The plot is exciting and fun, and the characters are all engaging.  I’m recommending this to my teacher friends as an installment for their classrooms.


The illustrations are colorful and eye-catching for children.

A Forgotten Past

 Ooh, this was good.  It had everything I love about an epic fantasy adventure.   The setting is well detailed and the magic is explained without getting too nitty-gritty.  I was worried at first that there were too many characters, but I quickly came to understand them.  Each was unique.  I’m excited to see where the sequel takes us.

Mad Magic

 Wow.  I was expecting a fantasy tale, but nothing so imaginative and delightful.  I’ve read multiple “Alice in Wonderland” stories, and this one has got to be a favorite.  Even if you’re not into Wonderland, give this book a try. You won’t be disappointed.

 Matthew Cox delivers another science fiction/paranormal winner.  You don’t always get sci-fi with plot and characters, but he presents a well-rounded story that keeps you wanting more.  I swear, he’s the master of ending a chapter where you can’t wait to read the next one.


Onto book 6!

 Wow!  This isn’t just a great start to a new series.  It’s a very dark young adult dystopian.  In some ways, its an adult book.  The language is adult, and plenty of evil things happen in the story. 


The world building is powerful and intense.  Its like our world enough to be believable, but different enough to suck you in and leave you wondering what will happen next. 


Maya is loveable and realistic.  The action is nonstop.  This book has all of Matt’s trademarks and I can’t wait to see where the series takes us.

Book 3 delivered a realization to me about why I love this series so much.  The characters continue across the series and they grow.  They don’t keep making the same mistakes.  Each book is complete in itself, but as the series continues, it forms a well-rounded world with realistic characters.  I’m at the point where I expect to meet the characters in real life. 


THRALL is another excellent installment.  If you’ve read the first books, don’t miss out on this one.
