Sixteen-year-old Daniel Thatcher has accepted some hard truths. He knows his parents are junkies, his ex-girlfriend’s a cheater, and he’s one write-up away from losing his job. But what he’s unwilling to accept is that his friend,Tony, skipped town for no reason. So when Daniel finds a map Tony left behind, he follows it to a remote section of the Cascade Mountains.
It’s a land filled with haunting shadows and crowded trees—an area untouched by man. Or so Daniel thinks. Not long after arriving in the woods, Daniel discovers inhabitants living in the heart of the forest. Despite their peculiar behavior, the reclusive residents posses an allure that goes far beyond their beauty. But beneath their lovely exterior rests a sinister secret, one that’s both lethal and tragic.
It seems the dead don’t always stay buried. Now Daniel’s forced to accept the hardest truth of all: monsters do exist, and if they have it their way, he’ll soon become one of them.
Whenever I meet a writer and agree to read their book, part of me cringes, especially if I really hit it off with them. I mean, what if I hate their book? I absolutely adore J.M. She’s smart, witty, funny, and a writer that has grown to be a friend over a short period of time. Thankfully, she can write a damn good story!
Muller has woven a unique story with dynamic characters and a world beyond your imagination. She is truly talented. I loved the main character, Daniel. He has lived a difficult life, and despite the fact that it has hardened him on the outside, he has a beautiful soul. I’m not one to give away spoilers, so I won’t say too much about the other characters, except that J.M. Muller has created a world and characters that will suck you in and won’t let go until you finish the final page. I particularly liked the way she went back to the beginning of the world of Narivous and how it came to be.
It is my pleasure to award Colors of Immortality with the Elite Award for excellent writing and pure originality!
