Discover the horrible fate of Jonathan York as he sets out on his journey through a spooky forest with an alarming party of travelmates!
Jonathan York has led a boring life — a pointless degree from the community college, a lackluster job at the General Store, and never any desire for something more exciting. But when fate leaves him stranded in a sinister land, he finds himself seeking an adventure of his own. Along the way he encounters ghoulish thieves, ravenous swamp monsters, a dastardly ice cream conspiracy, and a necromancer bent on human sacrifice.
In this beautifully illustrated, four-color novel, Jonathan York’s life takes a decidedly spooky turn!
What did you think of the book?
What a delightful read! I really wasn’t expecting to love this as much as I did, but I’ve never been more glad to be wrong.
The art, the verse and rhyme, the pacing of the story… all of it. Absolutely perfect. From the get-go, I had such a Hotel California vibe going on from this story, and by the end, you definitely knew it was going to be a kicker. The eclectic array of characters were all so wonderful. What an odd little bunch. (I loved you all.)
I enjoyed being strung along for the ride and am so upset to see it done. Most definitely recommending this book to everyone I meet. Don’t be surprised if I end up with a printed copy very soon. ❤
Any warnings you wish to make for your readers?
Some of the imagery might be a bit weird or scary, but overall, it’s pretty darned tame. 🙂
