Thanks to for providing this book in exchange for my honest review.

   I absolutely loved this book! I had no idea what to expect. This was a new author and a new publicity group for me. The story is riveting. It captured my attention from the first chapter and kept it the whole way through. I almost couldn't put it down. John Casey is a great main character. I am excited to learn more about him as he continues his adventures. The monsters are a huge mystery and quite a bit scary without being over the top. This was a very fascinating world for me. The story is unique and intriguing. I highly recommend it and look forward to the next installment of this series. 

About the Book: John Casey was ten years old when his mother was murdered…and ten when his father hid the truth from him. Without that knowledge, he has no idea of the enemies that lie in wait.
Now grown up, John lives a solitary life, in a world enslaved by ignorance and superstition, at a time when anyone unusual is treated with distrust and even killed…and John has some very unusual gifts. When he is accused of witchcraft, John does the only thing he’s ever done—Run! That is, until he meets Jane, who lives in the bleak, imprisoned town of Marysvale. Life outside the safety of the town walls means certain death from the brutal monsters that hunt there. However, life inside, under the rule of a tyrannical leader, means no life at all.
As the love between John and Jane grows, the dangers of Marysvale unfold; and for the first time in his life, John discovers that there is something worth dying for.
A fun, clean, action-packed story filled with monsters and tyrants, heroes and heroines.
